Equality and Perspective
There are various sources that highlight the issues of equality and perspective. It is evident that individuals have different perspective. At times they may judge others based on their culture or gender. Various sources highlight how individuals are judged based on their gender especially when it comes to education. Also, there are diverse sources that highlight the issues on equality. Some people feel that they are superior either based on gender or religion. The sources highlighting the issues can be put in different categories. They include logos, ethos, pathos and support vs. oppose. There are those sources that support the issue of equality, also, there are sources that offer the moral nature or beliefs of certain group of people and community. Other sources use appeal to emotion to convince individuals of an argument concerning the issue of perspective. However, other sources use logic to develop convincing argument on particular issues.
The article by Unicef( N.p.) offers information on the issue of gender equality. The argument presented by the source can be categorized as logos. It appeals to the reader’s sense of logic and reason. The article starts off by offering the definition of gender equality. It helps a reader understand the issue by offering its definition. Based on the article “Gender equality does not require that girls and boys, or women and men, be same….but rather implies an absence of bias or discrimination” (Unicef 11). This is to show that equality does not mean that people have to be treated the same. Instead, it shows that equality is about ensuring that no one is discriminated against based on their gender. According to the article, the issue of equality does not only affect women. Instead, there men are also affected by the issue. The article also highlights various ways of ensuring that there is gender equality. One of the approaches is that it is important to ensure that gender equality is framed as a major development objective. Also, it is important make the human rights case. In this case, the international human rights framework needs to be considered. Another approach is understanding the facts about equality. It will help in ensuring that an individual’s advocacy and policy dialogue is real.
The article by Schnabel (N.p) offers arguments on the link between religion and gender equality. The arguments presented by the source can be categorized as ethos. They distinguish the guiding beliefs of individuals in matters concerning religion and gender equality. According to Schnabel (N.p.) “The more non-religious people in a country, the more gender equal that country tends to be”. In this case, the source maintains that in areas where religion is not a major factor, people do not discriminate others based on gender. Although religious leaders at times maintain that religion has a liberating effect, studies show that non-religious are more egalitarian. The article offers evidence on how religion influences gender equality. It states that attitudes play an important role in the issue. Based on the article attitudes can gave huge implications in the world. Additionally, the article states that having more people who were not religious would lead to material outcomes (Schnabel N.p.). Based on the article, Christians seem to favor one gender compared to the other. It states that having more Christians in a country appears to be linked with equality for one of the two gender. Christians mainly do not offer much support to equality. However, Muslims appear to support inequality especially based on gender. For instance, women are not allowed to mix freely with men. The article offers strong arguments concerning gender equality and religion.
The article by Tinklin(N.p) offers arguments on gender perspective. Another issue that we highlighted in the previous essays is perspective. The arguments present in the article can be categorized as pathos. They appeal to emotions as they focus on creating an emotional response. In this case, individuals tend to judge others based on their culture and how they look. The current article, highlights how people are judged based on their gender. Based on the article, “there has been rising issues on gender differences in education”. The research focuses on gender differences in schools. Various research literature and policy documents are assessed to understand the issue of perspective. For instance, based on the article, boys are seen as underachievers while girls are considered to perform well in school (Tinklin N.p). In this case, the perspective for boys is different from that of girls. There is a certain image that is created concerning both boys and girls. The article tries to highlight the issue and debacle the beliefs. Based on the source, the underachievement of boys is based on their average performance. It also conceals major difference in performance within the two genders. Also, people are judged based on their social classes. According to the article, each social class group presents gender differences. However, young individuals with parents working in non-manual occupations appear to achieve high performance at standard Grade compared to those that work in manual jobs.
The article by Okkolin(3) focuses on the issue of perspective. Based on the article when it comes to education individuals are judged based on their gender. The book’s arguments oppose the issue of perspective in different communities. Based on Okkolin (6) “ In many developing countries, the socio-cultural expectations for the future role of girls, that is marriage and family…diminish the demand for female education and promote gendered differences in educational opportunities and outcomes”. In this case, it shows that the perspective of girls in the African culture affects their ability to access education opportunity. Mainly, girls are linked to marriage and motherhood therefore, not much interest is put into their education (Okkolin 6). Such ideologies have created gender gap in the society. The education opportunities for boys and girls are different. Boys tend to have greater opportunities compared to girls. Although Africa is the most affected by gender inequality, the gender gap has been growing globally. There has been a declining trend in female students’ educational progress. The gap is mainly influenced by in-school as well as out-of-school aspects. There should be much emphasis on their education and individuals need to change their perspective on gender roles. Women should be offered equal opportunities.
The article by Ortenblad (3) focuses on perspective on gender equality. The arguments presented in the book tends to support gender equality. Based on the writer “The feminist and legal questions of gender equality cannot be separated from broader social developments in the 20th century” (Ortenblad 4). There are various changes taking place in the society especially in the labour force. There have been changes in social ideologies among them gender ideologies. The transformations guide the interpretations of idea of equality as well as equal rights. There are different roles for men and women in the society. Their roles have differing social status. Feminism has been on the fore-front calling for gender equality. The legal systems have been having a hard time dealing with gender equality. Equal formal rights maintain that men and women are born equal. In this case, equality is viewed as a fundamental aspect (Ortenblad 9). The article focuses on gender equality in different countries. They include Nigeria, China and Uruguay. It also looks at gender equality in Arab and Muslim world. Based on the source, gender equality is viewed differently based on the country as well as religion.
In conclusion, it is evident that different sources present diverse arguments on the equality and perspective issues. First, there are sources that support the idea of gender equality. However, other sources use ethos, logos and pathos to present their arguments. Based on the articles and books, people have different perspective on matters pertaining gender and education. There are cultures that maintain that women should only be concerned with issues pertaining family and marriage. The perspective of girls in the African culture affects their ability to access education opportunity. Mainly, girls are linked to marriage and motherhood therefore, not much interest is put into their education. Such ideologies have created gender gap in the society. Also, there is a certain image that is created concerning both boys and girls. There has been a declining trend in female students’ educational progress. The gap is mainly influenced by in-school as well as out-of-school aspects.
