Discrimination is known as the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different people, especially on the grounds of race, age, sex, or disability. One of the UN Targets for Goal 10 is to empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all people, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or financial status.
According to the UN, "Data from 44 countries and territories from 2014-2020 show that almost one in five people reported having personally experienced discrimination on at least one of the grounds prohibited under international human rights law. Moreover, women are more likely to be victims of discrimination than men."
How do we end discrimination? First, we need to understand we are all humans. All have the exact basic needs and the same rights as citizens of the world. With that in mind, the only way to tackle discrimination of any kind is by educating people and spreading the common notion of humanity. The color of our skin, our country of birth or our gender do not determine our worth.
