Abstract

Gender sensitivity is a common language at use in all areas of working life, and this has come clear through caution placed in the semantic usage of words, in relation to political correctness. The rise of feminist movements across the world have changed the landscape of patriarchal dominance. This has now given rise to a situation where women are now taking centre stage by rising up to the hierarchy in areas pertaining to entrepreneurship in businesses, education and even politics at both national and global level. A call by the then UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon in support of gender equality (see quotation below) attested strongly to the need for ensuring gender equality is placed at the centre of world politics, particularly in regions across the world (for examples some parts of Africa and Asia) where the dominance of repressed political systems seem not to be in consonance with the call for gender equality.
