Is gender equality a concern for men?
Cập nhật ngày: 20/03/2012
The achievement of gender equality implies changes for both men and women. More equitable relationships will need to be based on a redefinition of the rights and responsibilities of women and men in all spheres of life, including the family, the workplace and the society at large. It is therefore crucial not to overlook gender as an aspect of men’s social identity. This fact is, indeed, often overlooked, because the tendency is to consider male characteristics and attributes as the norm, and those of women as a variation of the norm.
Why is it important to take gender concerns into account in programme design and implementation?

Taking gender concerns into account when designing and implementing population and development programmes therefore is important for two reasons. First, there are differences between the roles of men and women, differences that demand different approaches. Second, there is systemic inequality between men and women. Universally, there are clear patterns of women’s inferior access to resources and opportunities. Moreover, women are systematically under-represented in decision-making processes that shape their societies and their own lives. This pattern of inequality is a constraint to the progress of any society because it limits the opportunities of one-half of its population. When women are constrained from reaching their full potential, that potential is lost to society as a whole. Programme design and implementation should endeavor to address either or both of these factors.

How to Promote Gender Equality in the Workplace
Cập nhật ngày: 20/03/2012
Many sources define gender as the sociological construction of sex, meaning how society ascribes certain roles for men and women. In its report entitled "Promoting Gender Equality," the United Nations Population Fund states: "... it is important to acknowledge that where gender inequality exists, it is generally women who are excluded or disadvantaged in relation to decision-making and access to economic and social resources." Addressing gender inequality in the workplace is an important goal for companies to build strong alliances with women so the entire team contributes to organizational success.
Why is abortion related to gender equality?
Cập nhật ngày: 20/03/2012
I don't know. it doesn't make sense to me. Think about what they're saying. Abortion is usually surgical, right? (Sometimes they give you some pills). So are they saying that we, as women, need to have a surgical operation to be equal with men? Or, if you have a medical abotion, are they saying that we need to take some medication in order to reach equality? I don't understand.
