Q 2. How can the stereotype that girls are a burden on their parents affect the life of a daughter? Imagine this situation and list at least five different effects that this stereotype can have on the way daughters get treated in the house.

Answer: The stereotype that girls are a burden on their parents affect the life of a daughter in many ways which have impacts on their day to day life as well as shattering their dreams and goals. It also creates a feeling of being inferior to others and arouse a negative feel.
Five different effects are:
(i) They are not given quality education and are not sent to schools.
(ii) They are not given proper diet.
(iii) They have to do household work and are kept busy in this.
(iv) They are not allowed to go out and enjoy with their friends.
(v) They are not given proper care, love and affection of the family.
(vi) Their health issues are not properly addressed.


Q 3. What does the Constitution say with regard to equality? Why do you think it is important for all people to be equal?

Answer: With regard to equality, the constitution said that:
(i) People are free to choose the kind of work they wish to do.
(ii) Everyone has equal rights and opportunities.
(iii) Everyone is free to compete for Government jobs.
(iv) Right to equality for poor and other such marginal communities.
(v) Untouchability is seen as a crime and has been legally abolished by law. 

It is important for all people to be equal so that all of them have the freedom to follow their religion, speak their language, celebrate their festivals and express themselves freely. Respect for diversity can only be achieved by equality.

c. Children in your class refuse to share their food with a particular person because they think she is dirty.

d. Someone tells you a joke that makes fun of a community because of their accent.

e. Some boys make remarks about girls not being able to play games as well as them.

Discuss in class what the different groups have suggested for the above situations, and also talk about the problems that can come up when raising the issue.
