In the majority of South Asian societies, men have more power and rights than women, resulting in a high rate of verbal, physical and psychological abuse. Violence against women and gender discrimination happen so often that itís taken for granted.

Only extreme violence such as rape and murder is usually prosecuted and tragically the majority of those crimes remain unreported.

But men arenít born aggressors: education has the power to stop dangerous stereotypes that lead to gender based violence in future generations.

This is why gender studies should be a part of the course curriculum for allstudents. Subjects should cover contributions and perspectives of women in society, shedding light on womenís rights. Gender studies courses can gradually change the next generationís attitudes, ultimately leading to a more peaceful, equitable society for both men and women.

"Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed."
~Don Wood

It's time to stop blaming everything on "ignorance" and fix the problem! The Bangladeshi government should be teaching gender equality. Not only are they promoting violence and abuse by denying women equality, they're wasting more than half of their natural resources!

Gladly signed and noted!

Education is a very important vehicle for change. May the Bangladeshi government implement the suggestions for change or enact similar policies.
