What are the discriminations?

Discrimination is when a person is unjustifiably treated differently or excluded from a service or opportunity (a job, a home, , public transportation, etc.).

The two oldest forms of discrimination are:

  1. against women some 5000 years ago among nomadic peoples
  2. against foreigners in general (xenophobia).

Be aware. Don't stop at 'that's the way it's always been done' or 'everyone thinks like that' and above all don't belittle the word of someone who claims to be a victim of a stereotype.

We can create equal opportunities for all

Question yourself.

What would we do to decrease discrimination and stereotypes?
