When Abraham Lincoln first abolished slavery in the United States ensuring the freedom of all colored people to be as equal to their former masters, this was when inequality was first removed. In the 1920’s, women had the right to vote and eventually that right to get a job, equal education and equal competitive salaries enabled them to be at the same stature as men. However, that is only in the United States and most western and westernized countries. Still, inequality exists everywhere; you just need to look a bit deeper.
In the world today, countries in the Middle East and Arabian nations still stick by their unfair and bigoted cultures and practices that disable women from earning the right to get fair education and job opportunities as men. This is clear-cut inequality yet the very women themselves respect their culture so much that they even oppose any bill that promotes equality and justice for all.
In local economies, one might find that salespersons do not talk to people who do not dress or appear well. Some countries have these particular guidelines. The owner of Abercrombie and Fitch, recently announced that they are only making clothes for women size 10 and below, are promoting inequality.
The world may be a bit free, but all it did was to wash away the obvious intention of inequality by superiors, companies and corporations. While the world might seem to have independent control of things, this might appear only as an illusion, with the perpetrator’s intentions only a few more steps ahead.
