It would not be a become be a problematic issue if gender differences were did not create gender inequalities. However, it turns out that gender differences have created various injustices leading to inequality of opportunities, rights, and responsibilities, especially to for women. Those phenomena can be reflected and even reinforced by the online news media in line with their rapid growth.
