What are gender issues?
For the Gender Centre, gender issues are societal problems that affect women and men differently. We acknowledge that in many areas – business, health, education, religion, politics, etc. – women and men are not treated equally, usually because of social norms that dictate specific gender roles. In many ways such inequalities prevent balanced participation on the part of men and women and can often lead to deleterious effects for the female population. Our research supports such claims on gender issues through original and existing research. We aim to correct troublesome gender norms though a grass-roots approach in Ghanaian communities.
