Reference:  Deccan Herald

Why the question:

The question is based on the theme of social equity and specifically gender equity.

Key Demand of the question:

Discuss the concerns around achieving gender equity in our society and suggest solutions to address the same.

Directive:

Comment– here we have to express our knowledge and understanding of the issue and form an overall opinion thereupon.

Structure of the answer:

Introduction:

Start with the definition of social equity and specifically gender equity.

Body:

The adoption of our Constitution was also a declaration of a dream for an equal society where everyone would have equal opportunities to schooling, good health, speak and dissent, work, elect and get elected. Although we have achieved gender parity, that is, equal representation of girls and boys, or men and women in certain respects, we are far from achieving substantive gender equality in most cases.
Examine the above case for sectors like – education, Health, economy etc. and analyse the roadblocks in them to achieve gender parity or concerns around status of women.

Discuss the policies and programmes of the government in this direction.

Conclusion:

Conclude with way forward.
