Gender inequality

Gender inequality have been spreading all around the world. What right do gender has? What can they do? Nobody ever knows the truth of gender inequality on religion such as Christian or Baha'i Faith because people all over the world stereotype each gender and spreads rumor. Even though when the truth comes out. People struggle if they should believe this story or the other story.

What is gender inequality? Gender inequality is when men or women are being treated differently, they have limited right. Meaning that one gender is being control by the opposite of their gender. For an example, women are not allow to work because they have to stay home and clean the house and men hunt and work. What do gender inequality has to do with religions? Gender inequality create the outcome of how religion view gender. Gender inequality is not base on a individually person but as a group also known as religions because it create the outcome of how they look at gender differently, gender inequality is also a part of the religion that they are living on. In the United States Of America, it is stated that "All men and women are to be treated equally" however, due to their belief, religion choose to ignore it and follow what they think is right. Overall, religions often view women as object and men as a subject. Meaning that men are more powerful and women are weak. Women are not allow to make choices, not allow to do anything on their freewill because the men control them. Most of the times, women are view as a person who pleases the men through sex.

Baha'i FaithBaha'i Faith is a religion that follows three core values. Unity of Gods, unity of religion and the unity of humankind. They believe that the God periodically reveals his will through divine messengers. Transforming the character of humankind and develop who those who respond to moral and spiritual quantities. In the Baha'i Faith the equality of men and women is a fundamental Baha'i principle. However, Baha'i Faith said that women are not educated enough and lack social opportunities while men used their physical strength to prevent women from developing their true potential Another word is that women are view as weakness and the men have to protect them from destroying their image/reputation. Representing that their are no trust in women and they are just burden who just get in other people way on achieving their goals.

"Know thou, O handmaid, that in the sight of Baha, women are accounted the same as men, and God hath created all humankind in His own image, and after His own likeness. That is, men and women alike are the revealers of His names and attributes, and from the spiritual viewpoint there is no difference between them. Whosoever draweth nearer to God, that one is the most favored whether man or woman. How many a handmaid, ardent and devoted, hath, within the sheltering shade of Baha, proved superior to the men, and surpassed the famous of the earth"
Although, this quote stated that all gender all equal, that Men and women both has the same right. However, in reality women are not allowed to serve of the sect's highest governing body, the Universal House Of Justice. Due to this matter, it is causing tension between the segregated bodies. Women are not allow to be CEO, Vice President/President of an company, etc. This limited women life on what they want to become and the way they want to succeed. Another way of viewing it is man are suppose to look more advance because a woman being a CEO of a company and a guy being a employee embarrassed their religion. Also because men believe that women are not educated enough and they lack skills.

Christian
Christian is a religion who believes in Jesus. They believe that Jesus sacrifices his life to save other people life. Christian people live with the myths and choose to honor his legacy by following the book, called the bible. They believe that giving abortion is illegal and it is not right because you are killing a baby without their constant. Also they believe that you are destroy someone life who god is going to bring in this world. They believe that things happen for a reason because god wanted it.

Christian people have belief that men are not allow to marry another men and women are not allow to marry another women. Showing that women are powerless because they can't make their own decision. However, it also shows that men are not that much of a power because they are not allow to be with another same gender type.

"Now I want you to realise that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonours his head. And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonours her head - it is just as though her head were shaved. If a woman does not cover her head, she should have her hair cut off; and if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut or shaved off, she should cover her head. A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man."

Every man is a leader, while every women are man. When women are praying, they are not allow to showed their head because it is a dishonor to the god and a disrespecting meaning. However, on the other side, men do not need to cover their head because they are the image and the glory of God. Women are view as guest and men are view a power, leaders, etc. Women rights are very limited because in church, they only have two options. One option is to cover their head and the second one is to shave off their hair.
