Gender inequalities and societal factors affecting Physical, Mental and Physiological Health- Review Paper Abstract (Sample 2)
Gender-based inequalities, cultural differences, and societal factors are some of the impactful aspects which affect a women’s health apart from the characteristic biological differences from men. A baby girl faces gender inequalities from the beginning which puts a son in preference to a girl. It varies from receiving lesser food, less care, less healthcare, and lesser nutrition. There are numerous atrocities that affect a girl in terms of forced child marriages, rigorous household chores by young girls, immense physical labor and no care during pregnancies which worsens the physical and mental health of a female. All of this contributes to health risks and increased the cases of menstrual abnormalities, gestational diseases and untimely aging of females. Stress builds up and grows when they receive gender inequality at home and in the society which builds up psychological issues, physical problems and severe complications in their pregnancies. These factors are not limited to the uneducated section of the society the so-called educated believe that it is the duty of women to fulfill the household chores and the work/ school hours with full dedication for the house who still treats the men with superiority thus nailing down the mental strength of the female which majorly contributes for many health issues. Apart from all the factors the domestic violence, family pressure to barricade using health services, partial attitude against females, genital mutilation, increased risk to STDs, ill-treatment at home altogether leads to psychological impacts and physiological disturbances. In my paper, I will present how all these factors are deteriorating women’s health and making the women more prone to diseases.
