Gender Discrimination in Myanmar

Gender discrimination in Myanmar is very conspicuous. The male people of Myanmar think that they are stronger than women. The women should confine themselves only to household work. Their stay inside the house has become a tradition. The parents think that one day the girl will become the wife of another house. So she need not do other work. The husbands treat their wives very harshly. If anything bad happens in a family, the women are held responsible for it. In the sphere of service, the men are getting priority. Here women are held responsible for it. In the sphere of service, the men are getting priority. Here women are disqualified for lack of strength and courage. The women who are divorced from their husbands are very dishonoured in society and the family. The society treats them with disgust and dishonour. Women are still looked upon as the weaker section of the society even in the present millennium. This attitude is rife among the male because women are really lagging behind in education and earning capability. Even colours are also important factors in gender discrimination. If a woman’s colour is black, people do not agree to marry her. People do not show respect for them. But there is no discrimination between men and women in the developed countries of the world. So, we should remove the discrimination between men and women and establish their equal right for our progress and prosperity.
