Gender Issues Existing in the Curriculum
Gender Issues Existing in the CurriculumSome gender issues existing in the curriculum are as follows:
Use of ‘He’Every time there is a sentence in a book whose gender is unspecified, the word normally used is ‘he’ rather than she. Even in the word ‘mankind’, it is the man who is involved instead of labeling it as ‘humankind’. Therefore, the notion that man should come first is still prevalent.
