There is some discrimination against women in every country especially in developing countries. For example, women who doing exactly the same job as men are getting smaller salaries. Women are not considered for certain high level position, like for example, in government.

 In addition, in many communities, women are still regarded as inferior to men. This is particularly case in the rural communities’ .Also parents prefer to have a boy as opposed to a girl. This is an unhealthy situation, as it will disturb the balance between the number of men and women in the nations.

Causes of sex discrimination

First of all, I would like to highlight the fact that men often determine the wages in the companies. Secondly, women are not seen as able to certain jobs as well as men. For instance, construction work has always been seen as a man job. Moreover many men still believe that women should stay at home, raise the kids, and are of services to her husband.

I believe that discriminations against women have deep deep-rooted in societies all over the world .In the other words; it is not a present day phenomenon. Throughout history women have not enjoyed the same status as men .It is only recently that women have been filling the same positions in the work please .Lastly, I believe that it will take much more time to eradicate this practice.


Women are the backbone of human society and any attempt to strengthen human society must begin with the improvement of the quality of women. Their participation in the family as well as in social group will be effective only if they are educated.
