Inequality in Cameroon and Afghanistan
Velvet Hackett and Toby Becker
• The French portion of Cameroon gained independence in 1960 and became the Republic of Cameroon. The Federal Republic of Cameroon was created when the southern portion of British Cameroon voted in an attempt to merge with the Republic. 1972 was a significant year, as a new constitution discarded of the federation with a unitary state. This changed the Federal Republic into the United Republic. Roads, railways, and agriculture are all developments enabled by the country’s stability.

Gender Inequality
There is a lot of gender inequality in Cameroon, as females have strict limits to what they are able to do. They have to deal with restricted individual integrity, lack of assets and resources, unequal civil power, bias in the sex of the children (such as boys being more respected than girls), and discrimination in family and society as a whole.
Women have the right to vote, but not all of them do. Many are pressured by male family members and acquaintances to stay out of voting. Women are allowed to drive taxis, but face a large amount of sexism.Males degrade them, and sometimes abuse them. Men are the only individuals to drive in the family. Women are allowed to have education in Cameroon, but the quality of teaching and resources is not as good as education for boys. School are generally separated by gender. The literacy rate is lower for females because of this. Young females have their breasts mutilated in certain areas.
Females get longer pregnancy leaves than males, as they receive 14 weeks, compared to males getting 2 weeks.
Gender Inequality
Afghanistan is one of the most sexist places on earth. 85% of women have
no
formal education, causing them to be completely illiterate. Males are the main focuses for health and well-being. The total of live births per woman is about an average of six. The life expectancy for women is about 51. One out of ten children end up passing away before their fifth birthday.
Women gained the right to vote in the early 2010s. Women receive 12 weeks maternity leaves. Men do not receive paternity leaves.
