Exercising Your Voice on Gender Parity May 3, 2019


All through her career life, Sharon Prince has been exercising her voice with a particular interest in sealing gender parity gaps. While it has not been easy to compose her voice, she has steadily accomplished much by confronting dialects and powers that propagate different structures that upset gender parity efforts.


Sharon prince serves as the president and chair at Grace Farms Foundation which she established in 2009. She has been exercising her voice using different tactics and is now actively challenging and pursuing sexism. She maintains that vernacular has a significant implication on the development of sexism and the struggle for gender parity.


An article on The New York Times entitled “The Spiritual and Spectacular Meet at an Ultramodern Community Center in Connecticut”, talks about a facility which is a nature center, gym, hub for social justice groups, community garden and a part-time ecumenical chapel — and that is only a partial list.


Sharon argues that the current gender-distinguished language is a substantial cause of the impending challenges that are stalling any progress in the battle for gender equality. Sharon wonders why “Mrs.” is a term used for married women, yet there is no equivalent for married men. Breaking such barriers in every dialect is an essential step towards the improvement of gender parity.


Sharon admits that language is a powerful tool in the replication of gender discrimination and perpetuation of sexism. Sexism remains an unexpected challenge that requires fearless expression through voice regardless of associated risks and discomforts.


Sharon Prince is keen to observe a steady decline in gender parity but feels that much remains undone. Through decades of exercising her voice on gender parity, Sharon is now taking it upon the architectural directive at Grace Farms to speak against biased languages and lack of equality. She remains hopeful about the progress on gender parity.
