"The Discrimination of Gender"
An Analysis of inequality

The Research Question
How does gender discrimination affect a person's daily life?
Gender Inequality in
" 'Yeah. Shandra's a girl. Maya's a girl, too.'
'What? Don't you have a boys' team and a girl's team?'
'No, there's only one team. Boys, girls-they can both play on it.' " -(Bloor 101)
STEPHEN (calls out): I think Lincoln was the best president.
He held the country together during the war.
TEACHER: A lot of historians would agree with you.
MIKE (calls out): I don’t. Lincoln was okay, but my Dad likes Reagan. He always said Reagan was a great president.
DAVID (calls out): Reagan? Are you kidding?
TEACHER: Who do you think our best president was, Dave?
DAVID: FDR. He saved us from the depression.
MAX (calling out): I don’t think its right to pick one best
president. There were lots of good ones.
TEACHER: That’s interesting.
KIMBERLY (calling out): I don’t think presidents today are as
good as the ones we used to have.
TEACHER: Okay, Kimberly. But you forgot the rule. You are supposed to raise your hand.

The Answer
"I was trying hard to process this information. I said again, 'So Shandra's a girl?'
Theresa seemed to be enjoying this." -(Bloor 101)
Well, to start, discrimination is a form of inequality and injustice. It's bad. And its a recurring point in society.

Gender discrimination has been around since forever, especially against women. Not much against men. Not so much LOL there.

Discrimination because of a person's sex is hurtful. It can affect a person by making them feel sad, mad, or just having them feel left out.

Discrimination is one of the primary tools of the dark side. So RISE above it.
Examples of Gender Inequality
why is this an issue in today's society?
why is this an issue in today's society?
There are multiple ways a person can solve the issue of discrimination, such as:
Ignore it - The pressure may be too great
Freak Out - Yeah...like "Le Freak"
Report It - You can try...
Violence - Don't. Just Don't
Talk to Someone-It'll help
At Work
In Schools
In Sports
People in today's society often view women as the weaker sex, then creating the gender inequality issue. Females often feel that they have less opportunities, an increase in harassment, and more restrictions to freedom compared to boys. According to a survey, (taken by acei.org/global-news/gender-discrimination-in-education.html) 1 in 10 girls attending primary school and 1 in 5 girls in secondary school feel unhappy being the gender they are. Only 1% of boys in primary school and 3% attending secondary school feel this way. There may be a law against gender discrimination, but there is still inequality in the world.
When you think of sports, people think masculine, right? According to statistics, NBA teams have a higher average of total points per game than the teams in the WNBA. This goes the same with any other sport. Guys tend to be stronger, quicker, taller, and have a higher vertical than girls would. That's usually the reason that people know and watch more sports when guys are playing. People know Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant, but do they know the OTHER CP3, Candace Parker or Brittney Griner? Not many. Even thought people watch women's athletics, those athletes will never be as popular as those in the men's sports.
Many forms of gender discrimination are found at work. Bosses can deny people higher positions because they are a certain gender, or they can be denied from a higher salary.

Gender discrimination is also found in schools. It is tied in with peer pressure and can be also related to racism. For example, girls are commended for being quiet, sweet, and gentle, whereas boys are urged to speak up and stand up for themselves and be active. Boys in school are told that "boys will be boys" when they get in trouble for bad behavior and are OFTEN NOT let of the hook, while girls don't receive the same treatment.
How it is related to BULLYING
Presented to You By: Angeline Nguyen, Caitlin Lazaro, and Marcus Son
Bullying is basically just excessive, unwanted, aggressive behavior that usually occurs among children. Gender inequality is basically just a long-lasting form of bullying that separates females and males, and has been reoccurring frequently not only in today's society, but in the past as well.

Each person in the world has a different way of solving problems. But the best way to solve the problem of basic discrimination is SPEAKING OUT.

You can rally up others who have been discriminated.
A combined force's say can prove effective and make changes in how they are treated.
With a larger group, their plea is harder to ignore.
You have a better analysis of different types of discrimination, which could help when speaking out.
