These gender inequality comic strips will hit very closer to home. Especially in a country like India, where the gender gap is so huge.
Gender inequality is subtle and obvious. It exists in countries across the world in different ways. Sometimes we recognize it, for example when boys are preferred over girls. At other times, it can be harder to identify as gender inequality, like when men don’t get paternity leave to bond with their children. Identifying the ways in which it occurs is a crucial step to dismantling the hold it has on our lives. The cartoons below are a result of a competition held by UN Women along with the European Commission, in which students from across the world drew what gender inequality meant to them. You may find that a few of them hit close home for you.
