"For instance, when a woman is hired, some may perceive it as positive discrimination, implying she was hired because she is a woman. However, there's a lack of awareness that many men, particularly white men, are often hired due to the same concept in a predominantly masculine society.

Our societal biases also affect how we approach health issues. For example, a national stroke awareness campaign highlighted symptoms such as changes in speech and arm movement. However, these symptoms are more typical in men than women, demonstrating the gender bias even in healthcare awareness."
