Working Women Are One of The Causes of Unemployment: Chhattisgarh Class X Textbook
A Class X textbook for Social Science, published by Chhattisgarh Board of Secondary Education, listed one of the causes of increased unemployment to be "working women."
The chapter explains the economic problems and challenges of the country, claiming that the percentage of unemployment after independence has increased as women in all sectors have started working.
According to a report by TOI, a young teacher from Jashpur district in the state questioned the government after noticing the content and argued that women are equal to men.
Soumya told TOI, "Does it mean that percentage of unemployment is measured on parameters keeping only men in mind? In the age of technology and gender equality, students can't be taught about such prejudices. Women have equal right over jobs with men."
However, this is not the first time. Such incidents have already taken place in the past. One showing Asaram as 'Saint' in Rajasthan school book while the other excluding Arunachal Pradesh from the map of India and the list goes on.
