Question: Using readings and videos, answer the question-what do you believe is the future of gender equality?

In your answer address each of the priorities of the Biden administration’s National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality listed below. Although this is a U.S. document, you may also use examples from other countries.

-Improving economic security. “As we recover from the pandemic, we have the opportunity to build an economy that works for women and their families.” (National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality, 2021).

-Preventing and responding to gender-based violence. “Gender-based violence is endemic in homes, schools, workplaces, the military, communities, and online—and far too often a hallmark of conflict and humanitarian crises. It exacts tremendous costs on the safety, health and economic security of survivors and their families” (National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality).

-Increasing access to health care. “Health care is a right, not a privilege. All people deserve access to high-quality, affordable health care, regardless of their zip code, income, ethnicity, race, or any other factor“ (National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality).

-Advancing democracy, rights and full participation. “Supporting women’s and girls’ full participation in social, economic, civic, and political life—and ensuring they are represented at the tables where decisions are made—is essential to progress in every other area and a precondition to advancing strong and sustainable democracies. Promote the leadership of women and girls in addressing the challenge of climate change and seek to close gender gaps in STEM fields so that women and girls can shape the workforce of the future” (National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality).

Also, in your answer comment on intersectionality (the impact of intersecting factors such as race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, economic status, religious affiliation, etc.) and the role of men.

Your answer should be a minimum of 350 words.
