Gender Inequality

Gender inequality is discrimination on the basis of sex or gender causing one sex or gender to be routinely privileged or prioritized over another. Gender inequality is the social phenomenon in which men and women are not treated equally and this treatment may usually arise from distinctions regarding biology, psychology, or cultural norms prevalent in the society. Some of these distinctions are verified by observation or experiences rather than theory or pure logic, while others appear to be social constructs.

Vulnerable Persons

They are those who are in a particularly dangerous positions and as a result are a lot less capable of protecting or defending themselves.
