Reaching the ideal of Equality is a goal shared by many worldwide. In the past, just like in the present, the gap between Equality and Inequality has always existed. It is true that, sometimes, the gap has decreased but most often than not, it is increasing.
[…] to reach this ideal (equality), we must acknowledge that inequality has always existed in this world – Vice President Kamala Harris

On the global scale, extreme poverty is on the rise. In November 2021, the word food program has published that Madagascar is the first country in the world to reach famine due to climate changes, making it close to impossible to grow crops. But just like extreme poverty is getting worse extreme wealth is getting better.
At the beginning of November 2021, the World Food Programme announced that Madagascar is the first country to be hit by famine due to climate change. In the South of Madagascar, it has clearly became close to impossible to grow crops due to the lack of rain, which means that people cannot feed their families.
Gender equality has stopped progressing. Experts suggest that, it will now take decades for women to achieve parity with men, added Harris.
During the pandemic and with the gap between extremes widening on a global scale, the struggle to ensure that every child has access to a quality education has become much more difficult, said Harris.
Leaders are confronted with the worsening of equality on many factors. The cry for leaders to acknowledge the cap in inequalities has grown and more and more citizens, organizations, are making their voices heard on the subject.
