Man Slapped For Offering A Seat: Understanding Gender Equality

As of now, all state-run universities in the Federal Republic of Germany – like the Universität Heidelberg, the Universität München, or the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin – charge a very humble amount as compared to the United States’ universities.

Secondly, what needs to be fundamentally questioned is why is the institution’s honour attached to an individual’s criminal activity after all? Of course a school with bad teachers or students is not going to earn a good reputation, but an institution’s reputation is based on its official positions and not the bad reputation of its teachers or students. In other words, what the institution does and how it addresses a problem including individual or group aggression, violence or crime is what earns and breaks its reputation. By siding with the criminal in suppressing the crime and silencing the survivor, the institution is more likely to lose its prestige than consolidate it. Therefore, a fair trial is not only necessary for the purposes of justice, but also to establish the institution’s commitment to its members’ safety and well-being. For no reasoning is an individual expected to be a member of an institution that participates in violence against herself.

So, for example while arranged marriages are celebrated to the point of them being ideal and against the profane or anti-culture practice of love marriages, the other choice about sexuality and the choice of life partners by LGBT community remains a crime and unnatural in the eyes of law.

Commemorating International Day Of The Girl Child

As many as 64 percent adolescent girls dropout of school before completing the eighth grade. Multiple reasons have been cited for this fallout, including economic pressure, absence of separate toilets in some government schools, security issues, etc. Also, there is a wide gap between literacy rate in men (82.14 percent) and women (65.46 percent). Women fall behind in education, and are also subject to social biases.
