Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 8March 16,Creating a foundation for #GenderParity at home
International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 and this year’s theme is #GenderParity since this past year saw a decline gender equality from previous years. Readers share how they think we need to be improving gender equality in social, economic, cultural and political termsFor better governance

The decline in gender equality last year was due to so many factors like market fluctuations and the economy. Now this is improving as many nations started recruiting women for top positions and they also proved their mettle. Earlier employers were hesitant to recruit women because of their maternity leave and other aspects, but I think their mindsets have changed.

India is encouraging equality and women empowerment in all areas like education, jobs and politics. The UAE is also adopting this concept.

Gender equality is needed at this hour, especially in politics. This concept will change society and women will get more recognition.
