I explore discrimination faced by women in the world because of their Gender. Gender includes a range of physical, biological and behavioral characteristics pertaining to and differentiating between masculinity and feminity. Gender inequality still exists globally despite of substantial national and international measures that have taken towards Gender equality. At least one in three women around the world is estimated to have been coerced in Sex, physically beaten or otherwise abused in her life time. Far reaching commitments to gender equality and women’s human rights are capsulated in core international human rights instrument, including the CEDAW, Beijing Declaration etc. The greatest step taken by the United Nations is in form of Millennium Development Goal.
