Futility

The relationship between economic empowerment, often discussed in relation to employment and income, and gender equality is not straightforward. Increased access to employment and income for women does not readily translate into an improved status or bargaining power for women.

If they are not much of a family person, they utter ‘Same Pinch!’ and ‘Let’s party’ at least a dozen times while discussing their results with their friends. Typically considered “an iron gate”, SEE examination is the first national-level examination they attend which is why this examination holds a special place among students, parents and their relatives.
