Collect Gender Identity
Crisis and pandemics are placing increasingly stringent demands on equity and sustainable development. It is important to start studying this topic by collecting information in four main areas: social media, the internet, the library, and the local community. Social networks help to identify trends, social movements, and changes in the perception of an issue among the audience. By connecting to the Internet, it is possible to build an understanding of more advanced discussions on the topic of gender equality in forums, websites, and in the news. The library will provide classical studies and scientific articles on the topic, which will allow you to explore the problem with facts and statistics. The involvement of the local community is necessary to build an up-to-date picture of gender equality in student organizations, places of business, and NGOs.
Connect Gender Identity
The practice of gender discrimination is deeply rooted in modern society. It is often the result of patriarchal attitudes and associated social norms. The UN calls strengthening the legal framework a priority measure for ensuring gender equality, and empowering women and girls: the laws of many countries need significant improvement or radical reforms (Breda et al., 2020). That is why it is important to get opinions and plans to solve the problem from government agencies. Best practices, associations, agreements, and social programs are important to consider when assessing gender equality. In addition, NGOs of various levels, from local to international, and the summits they organize play an important role.
Certainly, it is also important to involve individuals and businesses (Carli, 2020). Companies and their employees can bring important insights into the real position of women in the corporate world, while friends and colleagues will share their experiences and opinions.
Reflect Gender Identity
Reflection will primarily include journaling on insights, lectures, and readings, talking to mates, professionals, and classmates, and thinking through different aspects of the problem. Definitely, reflection on gender equality is an important element towards change and a conscious approach to the issue. It helps to avoid anxiety and adequately assess facts and existing reality.
Share Gender Identity
Finally, there is a wide range of instruments that would help share insights and ideas about the issue of gender equality. The list includes but is not limited to social media and blogs, workshops and seminars, podcasts and discussions. It is important to remember that gender inequality is familiar even to the most economically developed countries, but this problem is most acute in developing countries. According to Shannon et al. (2019), 143 countries guaranteed equality between men and women in their constitutions, but another 52 countries have yet to take this step. That is why it is important to involve as many as possible different tools for information dissemination.
