This article addresses gender inequality, placing it in the context of contemporary society, influenced by neoliberal capitalism, which privileges the culture and way of life of the white population as a universal value. It points out that the deep origins of material inequalities between men and women go beyond mere arbitrarily motivated discrimination by gender. reaching social structures through which capitalist societies shaped human activity, both in the market and in the family, ignoring the advances made by legal instruments. It also highlights that sustainability must go beyond the management of human resources, including issues related to the population that suffers from socio-environmental injustices due to racial, ethnic or gender reasons and the urgent need for the broad recognition that women are an essential part of sustainability and the resolution of several problems that affect contemporary societies.
