Tutor description

From education, healthcare, violence, and job discrimination gender inequality is an ongoing issue that has to be addressed and eliminated. Women are an integral part of our society and world, and to marginalize an entire group is cruel, misplaced and unacceptable in a globalized, interconnected world. Even in the United States the voice of women is diminished as only 20% of the members of Congress are women (World Economic Forum 2009). During a speech, UN Women Goodwill ambassador, Emma Watson) launched a campaign called "HeforShe." One of her final words in her speech was directed to the men, "Men - I would like to take this opportunity to extend you a formal invitation. Gender inequality - It is your issue too" (Watson 2014).These words echo the truth, to fight gender inequality we are all going to have to work together. The United Nations has taken several initiatives to fight for women's rights and end gender discrimination.
