Abstract
An essential social determinant of population is student’s perception towards gender related issues. There aren't many research on this topic specifically in the Indian scenario, and even fewer on the variety in both backward dominant and non-backward areas. The goal of the current study was to examine and evaluate the perceptions of students attending particular secondary schools in India that were both backward and non-backward dominant. In an effort to put the students' perceptions into context, it also examined the gender related issues. The study explores how students in India perceive gender-related issues. To ensure fair and equitable treatment of women, numerous policies have been established and implemented in addition to the constitution. If pupils don't learn what gender equality means, all of their efforts can be for naught. The survey was done to find out how the students felt about gender equality. For this investigation, a qualitative methodology was adapted. Convenience sampling was employed to select the participants, rather than probability sampling. 100 students from the first to the last level of study made up the sample, 50 of each gender from different schools of India. Data from a focus group was gathered using a focus group, and data from semi-structured interviews was gathered using a focus group. Themes were used to analyze the data. The results of the study showed that although most students comprehend gender equality, they do not practice it, as evidenced by the answers they provided throughout the interviews. In order to exhibit equity among students, the researcher advises that students should inform them of all options available to first-year female students and motivate them to engage. Maintaining awareness efforts and having conversations about gender equality are also vital.
