Abstract or Introduction
It is extremely difficult to be a woman our world today. Women around the world are facing the dilemma of who they really are and why they exist. Mainly because of how they are generally ill-treated by men coupled with the fact that we are at a critical turning point in world history where humanity is facing the deepest health, economic, and social crisis of our generation and the situation is worsening.
Gender inequality for centuries appears to be the bone of contention between the male and female human species and it is always the female who suffers the greatest level of injustice. Even the seemingly most empowered women seem to have some form of squabble with the male gender. Women have been misunderstood, devalued, disrespected and unappreciated by men and this has left women with a very incorrect perception about themselves and their situation.
For generations, various advocates have been trying to end this inequality saga by cutting off the branches of the problems without uprooting the tree from the roots completely. What this means is that once the branchless tree remains watered by the same traditional, cultural and social waves, the branches quickly grow again to bear much bitter and diverse fruits of inequality and woman devaluation. It is time for the tree of gender inequality that constantly produces bitter fruits for women to be uprooted and the right tree that will permanently yield gender friendly and appreciative fruits to be planted.
