Women have In-equality because back then men didn't think that women could do much so they left their wives and women back at home to cook and clean and do house work while the men went out and worked hard.

### Does gender inequality affect the condition of men?

Gender inequality does not have to affect only women, although
that is how it is often thought of.
Gender inequality is usually the result of stereotypes, which
can be harmful to both parties. Just as stereotypes promote the
idea of women being at home, taking care of the kids, they also
promote the idea of men being the breadwinner and working. Women
sometimes face discrimination at work, while men can face
discrimination for being at home with their families while their
wives work.
That is only one example, but any gender stereotype that
promotes gender inequality affects both men and women and how they
are seen.

### How religion perpetrates gender inequality?

Most religions do have different rules for women than for men.
The Roman Catholic Church will not ordain women as priests,
although the Anglican Church does. Islam places women in a highly
subservient role to men in many different ways. There do exist some
religions that do not perpetrate gender inequality, for example,
the Unitarian Universalist Church.
