Discrimination - Teachoo.png

  • Discrimination refers to the unfair treatment of individuals or groups based on prejudice or bias.

  • It involves denying certain rights, opportunities, or privileges to individuals or groups based on their characteristics such as race, gender, age, disability, or religion.

  • Discrimination can occur in various settings, including workplaces, schools, housing, and public services.

  • It can take different forms, such as direct discrimination (overt and intentional), indirect discrimination (when seemingly neutral policies or practices have a disproportionate impact), and systemic discrimination (embedded in societal structures and institutions).

  • For example : In some villages, some people are not allowed to draw water from the village well.

  • Discrimination can have significant negative impacts on individuals’ well-being, self-esteem, and opportunities for personal and professional growth.

  • Combating discrimination requires legal protections, policies, and practices that promote equality and inclusivity.

  • It also necessitates raising awareness, challenging stereotypes, and fostering a culture of respect and acceptance for all individuals, regardless of their differences.

  • Creating a society free from discrimination requires collective efforts and a commitment to upholding human rights and social justice.
