Topic 2 Gender discriminations

In principle, discrimination is the treatment of ‘’someone differently or unequally on the basis of race, colour, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, or status as a protected veteran.’’

By extension, gender discrimination constitutes the discriminatory treatment of people on the grounds of sex or gender.

Gender-based discrimination results in gender disparities, that is to say that some people are more privileged than others due to their sex or gender. 

Gender discriminations are fueled by gender-related stereotypes, and people belonging to either biological sex are experiencing and affected by gender biases from their early youth concerning the societal expectations, behaviours, and prospects of their lives.
