Actionable Recommendations

Regardless of our gender, we must try to be part of the solution to dismantle patriarchal norms. With half of the population experiencing discrimination and oppression, we can not create a happy, thriving, and peaceful society. 

 

If you are not a part of the problem, you are a part of the problem.

 

Here are a few actionable recommendations for both women and men, which can be implemented in your own life and surroundings to create a more equal and sustainable society.

Patriarchy affects women disproportionately. However, you can still utilize your individual resources and privileges to fight against discrimination.

Men enjoy more socio-economic power and privileges. You can use your privileges to support feminism, gender equality and promote women’s rights.

Speak out against social injustice and discrimination against women.

Instead of blindly following social norms, challenge traditions or practices which are oppressive to women and portrays women as inferior and less capable. Educate and create awareness about the harmful affects of blindly following social norms.

 

Support and encourage other women and girls in fighting against systemic oppression and discrimination against women

Mentor and educate girls and young women from marginalized and less privileged background.

Treat and raise boys and girls equally without endorsing gender stereotypes in young boys and girls. 

Share the domestic and care work at home.

Worldwide women carry a huge burden of domestic work and childcare, which negatively affect their professional growth, economic empowerment, and mental health. Many women need to stay away from the workforce for raising children. Women feel more empowered and less oppressed when men share the responsibilities of raising children and domestic work.

Support and encourage other men to fighting against systemic oppression and discrimination against women

Help to build a neighborhood and community for women and girls where they feel safe and secured any time of the day.

Treat and raise boys and girls equally without endorsing gender stereotypes in young boys and girls.
