Good topic and well written

Quantitative Research Problem: The scholarly community does not know that though there are advances that have been made during the women’s movement, gender inequality is still a problem for the ladies that seek leadership opportunities in the defense sector. Comment by Patricia Loun: As I mentioned in the discussion this scenario works better as a qualitative study and I see that you labeled it qual so I am going to address it as such for changes needed for next week. Be sure to reverse the order in your next post.

Quantitative Research Purpose:

The purpose of this qualitative study is to understand the way females describe their experiences deal with gender inequality and how they perceive their lack of opportunity to achieve leadership roles.

See the scripts in Creswell and Creswell (2018) in the chapter on purpose statements. While this is not incorrect it could be stated in a more specific way to reflect the design and data collection you will need to use. See my edits

Quantitative Research Question:

How do ladies perceive the barrier to their professional advancement in the defense sector?

This creates a misalignment in your scenario. If this is the question you want to ask you would have to mention it in the purpose and problem. Those elements are more general. You can go back and change them to align with this question or change the wording here to match the problem and purpose.

How do ladies deal describe their experiences with with gender inequality? This one works with these edits

Qualitative Research Problem:

The scholarly community does not know how gender equality in workplaces impacts people’s mental health.

As a quantitative problem this could work. But we don’t use the term “how” for quantitative studies as the results of a quant study will not tell you how. Try “the extent that gender in(equality) impacts mental health”

Qualitative Research Purpose:

The qualitative study aims at analyzing how the extent that gender equality patterns in workplaces are connected with mental health

The terms you use in these elements reflect the design of the study. Assuming this to be a quantitative purpose statement. If you are interested in the “impact” of something on something else you usually test that by examining “differences between groups, treatments or conditions” in some outcome. If you are interested in the “relationship” between variables (correlations, connections), you test “the relationship between X and Y. this purpose statement is expressed as the later (correlational) but the problem is the former. I think changing the problem will be the better choice

Qualitative Research Question:

To what extent are the patterns of gender equality at workplaces are related to psychological distress?

See my edits explained above. Also for alignment you need to be consistent, While psychological distress is an element of mental health issues they are not the same in terms of measurement. Eventually you will need to define this outcome variable as something that can be measured. (i.e. depression, anxiety, ptsd, etc).
