FacebookPhotos of a Mathematics exam paper answer sheet apparently completed by a seventh standard student is now the hottest debating point among Indian users in social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.The question was very simple: “A woman earns Rs 18,000 in 15 months. How much money she will earn in a month? How much she can earn in seven months? How long will it take for her to earn Rs 30,000?”The student answered each of these questions correctly without any mistakes. And at the end of the answer, he wrote a very thought-provoking sentence, “This woman worker is underpaid.”As this kind of an answer was never expected from a child studying in the seventh standard, photos of the answer sheet are now going viral on the internet. But the words from this student pose a million questions to the Indian society, which is primarily male-oriented.Why women are being treated as second-class citizens, especially in the labor sector? PixabayCiting the example of Kerala, we can clearly say that there is a heavy disparity in pay between men and women workers. A man who is doing construction work earns somewhere around Rs.700-1000 a day in Kerala, but a woman gets only between Rs.300-450.In the textile industry too, women employees are facing severe atrocities from the side of the management. A year ago, it was reported that some of the leading textile showrooms in Kerala were not paying as per norms to saleswomen, and they are not supposed to sit inside the shop even when customers were not there.These are broad daylight facts we notice at a time when the whole nation is talking and fighting for gender justice. If the condition of women in a highly educated state like Kerala is so pathetic, then what will be the case of women workers in other states?It’s time for authorities to answer the way the Seventh Standard student mentioned in his/her answer sheet.
POTOMAC, Md. (AP) —Winston Churchill High School officials in Potomac, Maryland are being called on to better address racially charged incidents that have occurred at the school.The Washington Post reports (http://wapo.st/2hAM9AW) that last month, two students taped a “Whites only” sign to a school’s bathroom door. In a Dec. 7 incident, students allegedly entered a Republican club meeting, called the members racist and wrote “Black Lives Matter” on a classroom whiteboard.Montgomery County Republican leader Richard Jurgena addressed the county school board on Tuesday and called for a “complete, rapid and nonpartisan” investigation of the Dec. 7 incident.A Churchill employee told the Washington Post that the school didn’t alert teachers about either incident. Sixteen-year-old student Ethan Miller says school officials need to better inform parents and students about problems at the school.Churchill’s principal, Joan Benz, didn’t respond to requests for comment.___Information from: The Washington Post, http://www.washingtonpost.com
