Being the Voice of Women in the Fight for Rights
The transformation of today's world, specifically the corporate sector, demands the need to shatter the glass ceiling. Ending classism, racism, and gender discrimination should be the basic goal of the sector. Women should be given equal opportunities, and they must have equal workplace rights as men. Achieving this is not impossible, but once it seems challenging, SGD takes over. The goal is to end discrimination and make the world a better place to live in. And, in the end, the goal will be achieved.
If we keep working at the same pace and overcome the problem of gender discrimination by the end of 2030, the world would be totally different. Women will no longer have to face sexual harassment. They can move around freely. There would be no workplace exploitation. And, women would be treated as human beings too.
Women Empowerment; the First Step
Over the period, things have become a little better. Currently, it is not the same like it used to be. Women and girls are getting their basic rights, and now they do not have to hustle very hard to get the smallest thing done. They are getting exposure in the corporate sector with internet usage, financial freedom, and entrepreneurial opportunities.
A study showed that in the rural areas of developing countries, less than 50% of women have access to the internet. What does this indicate? It tells us that almost half of the population in those rural areas do not have even the basic technical knowledge. With softawares, these women can be educated so that they can learn and move forward. Big corporations can join their hands with relevant companies and try to provide the basic thing, the internet, to these countries' ladies.
Recent research concluded that only 59% of women have an account in a proper financial institute. Over 2 million people do not even have an idea how these things work. With technology, this issue can be resolved. Monetary can educate women and give them a helping hand. Over the period, many women even learned about the banking sector and started owning an account. For the empowerment, education on basic topics is mandatory.
Many women do not step out of their nutshell because of the fear of judgment and low resources. Both the issues can be resolved with the help of technology. For resources, they can contact banks and take loans or find potential investors from relevant platforms. And, to encounter the fear of judgment, they can be educated on how significant it is for women to take a stand for themselves.
Technology and Women Empowerment
Eradicating gender inequality may take some time, it is a gradual process, but it is worth it. Here are a few examples of how technology can be involved in removing gender inequality;
It gets easier to find out about the companies that are open to transparency. Companies that have equal opportunities for both genders.
Artificial intelligence and mechanization can be indulged in order to detect and find out about the companies that give a tough time to the women working there.
The pay gap between male and female employees can be closed, and the pay rate should be decided according to the designation, not the gender.
Women can learn about new and innovative technological trends and can also implement those in their lives. Educating one woman is equivalent to educating the next seven generations.
