In comparison to men, women around the world have fewer possibilities to participate in the economy, poorer access to primary and secondary education, more dangers for health and safety, and less political representation.
Women’s rights must be protected, and they must be given the chance to realise their full potential if gender equality is to be achieved as well as a number of other international development objectives. Everybody gains when women and girls are given the tools they need to improve the well-being and productivity of their families, communities, and nations. Reading a lot of different stories of strong women, we found Femest. A digital women magazine talking about all things women and sharing one to one interviews with women of different cultures and sectors. Aprajita Kohli, Founder of Femest, also a digital consultant and a global CEO at Megrisoft helped us understand her motive behind starting the magazine and working towards gender equality. The socially constructed roles and duties that civilizations believe are suitable for men and women are referred to as gender. Men and women should have equal access to political and economic clout as well as chances for training, education, and personal growth.
Achieving gender equality depends on the empowerment of women. It involves giving women more self-worth, decision-making authority, opportunities, and resources. It also involves giving them more power and control over their own lives, both inside and outside of the house. However, gender issues are not just centred on women, but also on how men and women interact with one another in society. Men and boys’ behaviour and attitudes are crucial for establishing gender equality.
