The authorities have to give a better access to education to women . The families should encourage women to work into non-traditional vocations and finally the companies have to get women into power positions.

14. the explanation of my synthesis:The problem of gender equality can be solved with an action plan of governments that will establish laws to give more importance to women in society. We can think of laws where we can impose equal pay between men and women while severely reprimanding sexual harassment. On the other hand, the evolution of mentalities can be done within society through education and in an environment where women hold more senior positions.
