Gender discrimination sees man or woman, not person. This thought process creates a filter, ignoring the values of the individual and focusing only on traits exclusively prescribed to men or women. This allows hate to arise and creates conflict between groups of people. In many cultures to this day, women are treated and viewed as inferior and are denied education and basic human rights. In addition to the imbalance of power, gender discrimination causes people to succumb to gender roles. Historically, women have been confined to domestic settings and men labor to support their families. Unfortunately, many individuals blindly accept these gender roles. The feminist movement, however, is constantly gaining momentum, promoting equality of the sexes and denouncing gender norms. The real value of a person has nothing to do with gender, yet gender is still inherently a source of prejudice.
