"Gender and Education"

Universities should accept equal number of male and female students in every subject.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?

In today's world, gender inequality still exists in many countries. Some people think that we have to solve this issue, and education is a good solution. Their opinion is that universities ought to agree to an equal number of male and female students in every subject.

Supporters who encourage equality say that women have enough ability to study and work as well as men. In the past, people thought women's jobs were household duties, and they were not allowed to study or work. But, nowadays, the female population is demonstrating their talent. In fact, some important positions in companies and governments are being held by women, fortunately, they are doing very well. So, universities should not have sex discrimination for their female learners.

However, some people think that depends on what subject people are studying. Men and women have strengths in different fields. For example, men are good in technological subjects such as IT and electrical technology while females are more suitable to become nurses and nursery teachers who need communicative skills and emotion. Consequently, it is difficult for universities to create fair representations between male and female students in every area. That is the students' decision. Universities can only decide the total number of students not how many men and women per subject.

In conclusion, I disagree about the equality of gender in every subject because it depends on students' choice. They choose their favorite area. However, an equal educational environment is essential. The managers of universities should provide the same study opportunities for both men and women.
