"'When we refer to women by their roles, their original and real identity gets lost,' said Mr Darya. 'When men deny women's identities, over time women themselves begin to censor their own identity.' Ms Sayeed, a women's rights activist and one of Afghanistan's most famous singers, said women were entitled to an independent identity. 'A woman is first of all a human and then your wife, sister, mother or daughter, and she has the right to be recognised by her identity,' she said. But she said she feared the campaign had a long road ahead" (para 15-17). This indicates that societally, women may only be considered to have a fulfilling...more

"Women continued to face discrimination and hardship in the workplace. Women made up only 7 percent of the workforce.

Older and married women reported it was more difficult for them than for younger, single women to find jobs. Women who worked reported they encountered insults, sexual harassment, lack of transportation, and an absence of day care facilities. Salary discrimination existed in the private sector. Female journalists, social workers, and police officers reported they were often threatened or abused. Persons with disabilities also suffered from discrimination in hiring" (43).

"South Korea has a shiny side that it wants to proudly show the world: K-pop, K-quarantine during COVID-19, hi-tech industries. But what it is less keen to show are the areas where it catastrophically fails. South Korean society does not know how to protect or treat women as equals to men and as valuable and indispensable entities of society. Rather, South Korean women, myself included, live in a country that views women as objects —beautiful things whose sole function is bearing children. This is not just a societal construct, this is unabashed discrimination against women that is encouraged by my government. For example, in January 2021, the Seoul city government...more

When a popular actor, Masaharu Fukuyama, married the actress Kazue Fukiishi in 2015, Mr. Suga predicted on television that their marriage would prompt 'Mama-sans' around the country to 'want to have babies alongside the new couple and contribute to the country' (para 25-26).

In Cabo Verde, in light of gender roles and stereotypes, women are assigned almost exclusive responsibility for domestic work, education of children and family care: on average people dedicate almost 1/3 of their weekly time to unpaid work, 63 hours a week on average for women and 38 for men, a difference of about 24 hours a...more
