Abstract This article aims to examine gender inequality which still exists in our society, as in every part of the world, by analyzing reports. Each report shows indicators which are core factors contributing to a females' lack of full rights when compared to males. The indicators in which each society needs to work closely in order to ensure women's rights are equal access to economics, education, and health care, and also opportunities in politics, political empowerment, human rights, and so forth. This article will show the roots of the gender gap that suppress women and form a social construct based on tradition. Having fewer opportunities than men makes women realize that their rights have been deprived and this results in a call for rights by publicizing the issue, marching, and other conventions. The women's rights movement has been ongoing for more than 200 years. Over time, the focus of women's rights has differed. These changes constitute the four waves of feminism. This article focuses on gender inequality and violence against women. The United Nations has raised awareness of this issue through the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in 1993. This article will compare the Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women comparing to the Thai public policy dealing with the elimination of violence against women through its Victims of Domestic Violence Protection Act B.E. 2550. This passage of law shows the effort that Thailand has made in trying to eliminate domestic violence. As this law has encountered some obstacles in its implementation, the Ministry of the Social Development and Human Security proposed a new law titled Promoting Development and Protecting the Family Institution B.E. 2562 to take its place. Although it was passed by the National Legislative Assembly and published in the Royal Gazette, the passing of the Royal Decree on the amendment of the law was put on hold and the Victims of Domestic Violence Protection Act B.E. 2550 continues to be enforced until the amendment bill is enacted. Finally, this article provides some suggestions for building social awareness and changing the mindset of people on violence in order to pave the way for gender equality in our society.
