Gender discrimination is the treatment of women and men in a different way in the society or family publicly or in private. Since ancient times women had been given a less powerful or useful role in the society. Their word and decisions were not weighed equally on par with that of men.
During the 21st century the situation has improved a lot. The government has made a number of ordinances to eradicate the discrimination. Governemtn also has special schemes to uplift the status of women in the society.
Long ago having a girl child was treated as a loss to the family and to the parents. Now there are many schemes by government for female children to be educated freely along with other benefits.
