Gender discrimination is the difference between male and female in respect of enjoying rights. It is a great social problem in Bangladesh. Female children are the worst sufferers of this and it is very much shocking that it beings at birth. There are many causes behind it. Social prejudices and customs tend our male dominated society to degraded women’s position. Religious misinterpretation and social structures also contribute to it. Besides, the parents think that the male can contribute more to the family. So, from the very early stage, parents take more care in all respect for the male children. The consequences of gender discrimination is very harmful. The female develop a mental complexity of being inferior. They can not think that they are perfect human beings. On the other hand, female education is greatly hamper and the female population fall a serious victim to our evil dowry system. However, this problem cannot be solved overnight. For this our outlook towards the girls should be changed. It should be well established that women are equal partners to men. Proper education should be ensured for both male and female child. Above all, we will be able to come out of this social curse only when we will realize the fact properly that women are not merely women, rather they are human beings.
