Gender inequality enable violence in Mercy’s life and community in a way that Mercy did not have the opportunity to continue school like her brother and ended up with un planned pregnancy and got married un planned as well which caused her to encounter difficulties with family cores to cater for her family and at the same time go to market ant earn some money. All these was violent to Mercy and could affect the community because Mercy is not able to contribute anything to the community since she is busy with family cores. or is always in private cores.
Having been persuaded by a boy leading her to have unplanned pregnancy worsened gender inequality all caused by not having same opportunity with her brother of attending school.
