The difference between male and female is very real and strongly rooted in human nature and physiology. In the olden days, people were not treated equally on the basis of their gender which was considered a social issue. Some differences in genetics, psychology, or social culture may cause this treatment. Even in the current politics when we come across the globe lead, women are the one who suffers loss when we compare to men. Gender inequality leads a major role in women including education, life, expectancy, personality, interest, family, occupation, and health. In many areas, they have shown that gender perceives things differently like education and political allegiance.
