In contemporary society, topics about gender start to appear more in people’s conversations. More and more successful individuals, representatives of females or famous people, contend to be feminism due to many gender inequality events emerged in our society, such as females being always downplayed in the industry of sports or females should not participate in trades because many people believe that females are not suitable for business or that females are too weak to be involved in sports events. Some people now are aware of how these stereotypes result in a large proportion of opportunity losses in females and want to change others’ minds. How these people start to change or originate their opinions about gender equality and the difference in perspectives of gender between people now possess and people used to possess. Because gender equality has been the spotlight and focus in the public eye, the author wonders how this happened. In this paper, the author used the questionnaire method, document analysis and field research to answer her questions. These methods were applied in people of different ages. In the end, the author found that different views between older people and younger people are generated by the development of modernization, better education, the spread of gender equality theory through all kinds of media, religion, and the powerful and successful representatives’ influence. There were more sex discrimination ideas in the past than there are nowadays. Older people think of women and men in a different way, while younger people consider widespread gender equality as a necessary process leading to a better world. The reasons why changes in perspectives occur are the development of modernization, better education, spreading of gender equality theory through all kinds of media and the powerful and successful representatives’ influence.
