Title: Gender Disparities in Child-Care with specific reference to Nutrition and Education
Author: Faiqa, Syed (Scholar); Vaida, Naheed (Guide)
Abstract: Gender refers to socially constructed roles and socially learned behaviors and expectations associated with females and males. Women and men are different biologically. Women can give birth to and breast-feed children; men cannot. Most differences among women and men are created by society and relate to behavioural patterns, which are influenced by the different cultures of different societies. A study was conducted on ―Gender Disparities in Child-Care with specific reference to Nutrition and Education‖, with following objectives:  To analyze the cause of gender discrimination.  To assess the discrimination with respect to nutrition.  To assess the discrimination with respect to education. Results reveal that the main causes behind the gender disparity which still exists in the society are lack of knowledge, limited resources and mental backwardness. Female children are neglected due to strong male preference. Limited distribution of nutrients among girls have lead to malnutrition and other health problems. Household responsibilities have been found to be the cause of illiteracy among females. Finally it has been analyzed that discrimination of women in health, nutrition and education effects the development of females by making them feel inferior and incapable.
