Many people all over the world has discussed the issue of equality one of those people are Neuroscientists. The scientists discusses the history of equality and the science that goes behind the thought of equality. In this article it states "Modern examples exist, such as societal debates over same-sex marriage and women's rights to choose in many countries." With that in mind there are still people out there that doesn't see that there is still problems with inequality. This matters because if people think that we've done enough with the issue people won't help out when other equality issues occur. Yet the minorities are still not treated as an equal.
One minority that faces inequality are the females. Throughout hundreds of years women has always been discriminated as the weaker gender. In this article it states "As Amnesty International also points out, Governments are not living up to their promises under the Women’s Convention to protect women from discrimination and violence such as rape and female genital mutilation." This means that even after all these years we have not solved the issue. This matters because if people don't do anything about this it will only cause chaos when the two genders become divided and hateful towards each other. Yet that's not all.
With that women still face with inequality everyday. In this article it talks about how women don't feel like they are as equal to men yet. It states "Fewer than half of women around the world believe they have the same opportunities as men, according to a new survey. In contrast, almost two thirds of the men think there is equality of opportunity among the sexes." This means that men are pretty ignorant to the fact that women are still not seen as an equal. This matters because if women aren't seen as equal then the world will not progress. Except women are not the only people to be discriminated.
With that women aren't the only people that are being discriminated, people from the LGBTQ community has also faced this issue. In the article it states "from the first-ever LGBT-inclusive hate crimes law Congress passed in 2009, to executive orders prohibiting discrimination by federal contractors in 2014, to nationwide marriage equality in 2015. But many barriers remain, and LGBT Americans still face discrimination in many facets of their lives. This means that even with everything they have been through and everything they achieve there is still a lot to be done. This matters because there are still many people out in the world that wants to hurt and kill the LGBTQ community. Yet the minorities still gets treated like this.
When discussing about equality what most come to mind is racism. In the article it states "Far more white Americans — 38 percent — said they thought the country had done enough to bolster race relations, compared to 8 percent of African-Americans who said the same." This shows how ignorant white Americans are to actually believe that what America has done is enough and nothing else should be done about it. This matters because if people are that ignorant to believe that we have done enough for our community then we will never truly have equal rights. With all that in mind, without equality the world will never progress and people will be harmed.
