Gender bias is a major issue even in this age of advanced technology and improved social living. Women do not have free access to show forth their talent in various fields and treated as a weak vessel to compete with men. Stereotypic projection of society, women as warm and caring and men as strong and agentic are highlighted in this critical study. It is argued that women should be given equal priority in participating political related matters and should be given chance to focus problems facing by them in the male dominated society. How discrimination is shown in the work place and how women have been paid less salary comparing to men are studied and highlighted thoroughly in this article. Restricted ownership, education attainment, entrepreneurship and mobility of women are studied critically.
Key words: bias, stereotype, ownership, education attainment, discrimination, mobility of women, unemployment and poverty
