Existence of prejudice and discrimination in the society is not new. All societies have histories of discrimination in one form or the other, with the weak, the less powerful, or the minorities being made the scapegoats. Recognition of these prejudices has led to a decrease in the unfair treatment of vulnerable individuals on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, colour, nationality, socioeconomic status, age, physical or mental disabilities, or disease. Discriminations in the form of jokes, fewer chances of employment, less pay with more work hours, or derogatory remarks are looked down upon in many societies.
