Do you think if the women would be same in the next century the way they are today? I was amazed to see that a new rule is being introduced that no one will be granted citizenship of Australia if they fail to clear a test that will show their awareness about women’s condition in this country. They have added this in their qualification criteria for immigrants applying for citizenship with immediate effect and if someone failed to clear this test thrice, they stand no chance.
But when we consider that even with so many laws in place but are they being followed properly or it’s the deep rooted thing in society even in a country like Australia where they have to to test peple whether they follow the good ethics of respecting women in general as a whole. Although they have included children in the list too but basically it’s the issue of women in general.
Technology has changed the world in last decade to the level which was unimaginable until the beginning of this century. But the changes are not applicable in all parts of the world on equal basis while some of the regions have availed the most of the benefits that came with the changes most poor countries from the third world have yet to benefit from them.
If we talk about women they have yet to be included in the race in backward countries. While certain parts of the globe are trying to participate in the race of development their women population the same regions are way behind from their men counterparts. And if we were to believe the World Economic forums on this topic the gap will be still the same in next 100 years.
Let’s keep in mind the recent paper of The International Monetary Fund (IMF) an organization of 188 countries that clearly says that there is a positive connection in between corporate profit earning and participation of women. Many leading world companies have witnessed a better working environment and increased revenue by increasing women’s participation.
In fact, corporate sector the world over has reported that there has been a positive impact on their work environment, decision taking, awareness, ethics and other activities due to increased women enrolment. And when all these activities increase there is a large impact on productivity and profits as well. So, there is no reason we can avoid women work force in our areas and achieve a better working environment.
We are still on the stage of reserving quota for women in different fields including legislative but it should be a level playing field without talking about reservations as it sounds like we are being forced to do something or the women are inferior and they are being given something in donation.
In my views we should not take decision based on gender, cast, creed but qualification and the world knows our women are competent enough. I also think that there are too many worrying signs that women’s respect has gone down the world over or is not on priority list.
