International Women's Day IWD 2020 Celebrations at Lead Pilani School JMA
For International Women's Day 2020, the Unite Nations UN theme chosen is "I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women's Rights". It is beyond doubt that the full and equitable participation of women in all areas of society is a fundamental an undeniable human right. However, unfortunately worldwide, women and girls are considerably underrepresented: from politics, jobs, science & culture, entertainment, journalism, sports and last but not the least culinary arts.
The political representation of women in the world has doubled in the last 25 years. However, this barely represents one woman in four people in parliaments, leaving more than three quarters of the seats occupied by men. Women remain considerably underrepresented in the highest political positions. It is unfortunate that only 78 women MPs who constitute 14.3% of the Parliament of India as against 32% in USA and believe it or not 21% in Bangladesh.
In June 2019, the Fortune 500 list reached a milestone and registered the largest number of women with the position of CEOs. While each new woman is a victory, the total sum shows a worrying picture: of the 500 people in executive management positions that lead the companies with the highest income, less than 7% are women.
In Journalism, according to a study most important about the characterization, participation and representation of women in the media, which spanned 20 years and 114 countries, only 24% of people who listen, read or see in the written press, television or radio are women. Despite the promise of democratization of digital media, the low representation of women in traditional media is also reflected in digital media: women are only 26% of people who write news and journalistic tweets on the Internet.
In entertainment, cinema and television have a considerable influence on cultural perceptions and attitudes towards gender, and are essential to modify the narrative of the gender equality agenda. However, an analysis of famous films in 11 countries revealed, for example, that 31% of the characters with dialogue lines were women and that only 23% of the films had a female protagonist, a figure that closely resembles the percentage of female filmmakers (21%). The serious underrepresentation of women in the film industry is also flagrant in the awards for the most critically acclaimed films: in the 92-year history of the Oscar Awards, only five women have been nominated in the Best Director category; Of the five, only one won the prize (Kathryn Bigelow). Jane Campion, meanwhile, remains the only female film director who won the most important and prestigious prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
It is known that sport can inspire changes and break gender stereotypes, and that is what women are doing decades ago: demonstrating that they are as capable, resilient and strong as men, not only physically but also strategically also. It is expected that, for the first time in history, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will have an equal representation of men and women in competition. By comparison, only 22 women (2.2%) of a total of 997 athletes competed in the Olympic Games of the modern era, for the first time, in 1900. Despite the progress, women remain excluded from certain sports in some parts of the world and are paid much less than men in salaries and monetary awards worldwide.
The saddest representation of women is in believe it or not culinary arts. Although women are assigned stereotypical roles in home cooking, the most prestigious positions in the restaurant industry are relatively alien to female chefs. Women have no option but to overcome situations of active discrimination and overcome a culture that not only glorifies masculinity, but also tacitly approves harassment. Women face very big challenges when they enter the restaurant business: extensive, unpredictable and inflexible work schedules, poor family and care policies, and low wages.
In the light of the above scenario, on the occasion of International Women's Day IWD 2020, team JMA Pilani led by Chairperson Dr Suman Mishra, Principal Mrs Booma Natarajan took a solemn resolve to do their best to correct the gender bias and ensure that women have their rights restored in all spheres of life.
