This is the modified version:
Some universities hold the view of gender equality in every subject. Although it is important to emphasize gender-balanced in social life, I would argue that a modest adjustment of severely imbalanced courses would be practical.
Gender equality can foster technological development and encourage the young generation to make great success. In general, females have unequal opportunities in certain professions, such as engineering and information technology. It is the traditional stereotype holding that men are superior to women in these fields. However, the different gender would see the world in opposite ways. Women would become fresh blood in male-dominated fields and provide creative ideas, which can further industrial developments. If societies establish a more gender-balanced workforce, young people will try to break the gender stereotype. As a consequence, they can have more opportunities to make great achievements and gain social approval.
I agree with adjusting gender-imbalanced subjects, but a rigid 50/50 gender balance may be unnecessary. Sudden and strict gender equality would have to reduce the number of a specific gender of students. As a result, universities would lose a certain number of motivated and qualified students in some particular fields. At the same time, some students may have to enroll in those majors where they would find no enthusiasm. Imagining that a certain number of students cannot choose their favorite majors, it may be meaningless to study in universities. Therefore, there would be a waste of time and resources for both students and universities.
In conclusion, gender equality can promote industrial development and inspire ambitious college students. We may also notice that the rigid gender balance would sometimes be superfluous.
