Chapter 2 - Diversity and Discrimination

Question 1: Match the following statements in a way that challenges stereotypes.
Answer:



Question 2: How can the stereotype that girls are a burden on their parents affect the life of a daughter? Imagine this situation and list at least five different effects that this stereotype can have on the way daughters get treated in the house.
Answer:
The Stereotype that girls are a burden on their parents affect the life of a daughter in the following ways:
• They are not properly cared.
• They are not given preference for higher education.
• They are not allowed to attend schools.
• They are married early.
• They are engaged early in household works/chores.

Question 3: What does the Constitution say with regard to equality? Why do you think it is important for all people to be equal?
Answer:
Our Constitution provides that the state shall not discriminate against any citizen on the basis of religion, race, caste, sex, or region. It is important for all people to be equal because only then our society would develop in the true sense of the term. It is our right to be treated equally. It is our right to be given due respect. It is our right to be given equal opportunities. In absence of all these, our life would be hell. Our personality would be suppressed. Hence, we need equality so that we may go ahead without any barrier. We may prove ourselves helpful in the development of the society and country.

Question 4: Sometimes people make prejudiced comments in our presence. We are often not in a position to do anything about this because it is difficult to say something right then and there. Divide the class into groups and each group discuss what they could do in one of the following situations:
a. A friend begins to tease a classmate because he is poor.
b. You are watching TV with your family and one of them makes a prejudicial comment about a particular religious community.
c. Children in your class refuse to share their food with a particular person because they think she is dirty.
d. Someone tells you a joke that makes fun of a community because of their accent.
e. Some boys make remarks about girls not being able to play games as well as them.
Discuss in class what the different groups have suggested for the above situations, and also talk about the problems that can come up when raising the issue.
Answer:

a) I would try to convince my friend that being a poor is not a crime nor a matter of laughter. Hence, he should not tease his classmate. Instead, he should take care of his dignity and self-respect.
b) I would stop him/her to do that.
c) I would advise my classmates to be friendly with one and all.
d) I would not get involved in the joke and would proceed from their immediately.
e) I would try to convince those boys that girls are in no way less efficient than their male counterparts. I would give examples of Kalpana Chawla and others who did what many men could not think of.
