GenderInequality

Gender inequality emanates from socially constructed gender roles.It has manifested itself in different scenarios where individuals ofa particular gender are denied equal treatment. Notable effects ofgender inequality are sexual objectification, domestic violence, rapeand sexual harassment. Particularly, women are portrayed as sexualobjects (Szymanski, Moffitt, and Carr, 2010). The research seeks togain an understanding on the topic of gender inequality through aquantitative research.

The group will venture to gain more information on the subject.Surveys would be conducted where participants would be selectedrandomly to help in the participation of the study. Both men andwomen will be chosen in a random manner and given a survey that theywould provide answers. Feedback provided by the participants would beanalyzed to provide more information on the subject of genderinequality. The selection would be done irrespective of thebackground they come from. The group would benefit from the diversityof information derived from multiple participants of the study. Thecollection of information would, however, be done after the approvalof university administration and written consent of participants.

Rationale

The decision by the group to choose the subject of gender inequalityis based on the fact that it has significant adverse effectsespecially victims. It is essential to understand the issue of genderinequality and use knowledge learned from the same to come up withinterventions to address it. Gender inequality should be addressed toensure that victims do not suffer its negative consequences. Thedecision to focus on the topic would be helpful in gaining a broadercomprehension on the subject. The group will concentrate onidentifying crucial aspects on gender issues. Further, the femalegender experiences challenge when it comes to the ability to balancework and private life. The group will be endowed with the capacityto learn various issues revolving around gender inequality.

PriorKnowledge

The group will rely partly on previously conducted research by otherscholars on the topic of gender violence. Lots of research has beendone on gender inequality. The group will evaluate existingliterature as the source of prior knowledge on the subject. Further,prior knowledge sought from actions of social activists who have comeout to condemn strongly gender inequality will be applicable inconducting the research. Further, institutions of higher learninghave been instrumental in introducing educational programs with thegoal of creating awareness on the issue of gender violence. Priorknowledge on gender inequality would play a decisive role in comingup with ways of understanding future directions on the topic.Scholarly work has been conducted on gender inequality with the focusbeing on the effects and those affected by the same.

ResearchQuestions

  1. Do you think it’s safe to be objectified?

  2. Would you want to live in the past? Like in the 60s when women are housewives and men are working?

ResearchOutcomes

It is expected that the group members would work in collaboration toattain the objectives set in conducting the research. Further, it isexpected that the group will have access to information on theconcept of gender inequality. Through the knowledge gained regardinggender inequality, the group hopes to come up with interventions tohelp in tackling the problem. The group’s expectations are that inthe long-run both men and women will cherish the lives they bothlead. It would be helpful in bridging the gap that exists between menand women. Through the same, it would be possible to create cohesionbetween them while at the same time fostering a positiverelationship. The adverse effects of gender inequality would beaddressed.
