Equality For Both Sexes
We have so many International agreements affirming equal rights of women but still we haven’t seen a good outcome, This fires up my idea to write. We can see the staggering proportion that women have less access through privileges i.e medical care, property ownership and employment than men. Ideally men dominance is a norm and women to be equal with them haven’t surface yet. We can see that in many countries.
I personally believe women plays a vital role in the society, not just raising kids, cleaning the house or for sexual purposes or anything of that effect. A feminist should not agree with that thought. Although women really fulfill that duty to their husband and children but it didn’t mean that they are “just” only good at those things. Women with the likes of Helen Keller, Mother Theresa and a lot more have proven so much in the society. Women must have a right to fully and equally participate in our society without the hindrance of religion, culture, society or beliefs. They must be free from any forms of discrimination. It is time to stop stereotyping women.
We are not having a battle of sexes here, we are just proving that although men and women have different weaknesses and strengths men and women are both needed by the community to make this world a better place. World without women won’t exist and neither without our male counterparts. Wrong ideas comes so handy when people just ignore the fact about women. I want to reiterate that women are not just for creation and household chores. We don’t need to lash judgment because some women live their life in celibacy and even die celibate. We all know that the average of men outnumbered women and not all women will have a loving partner, some will just live their life celibate and work for the progress of her society, we can see Mother Theresa as one of example. Does Mother Theresa isn’t worthy with this society because she doesn’t fulfill one women function which is to have children? Wrong, Mother Theresa is the beacon of hope of many people.
A lot of people are muddle in a way, Surely they missed out so much because what they believe are things that they shouldn’t live up. It’s certainly true that men and women have obvious physiological differences but this doesn’t make men superior than women. We can’t put aside that having this idea some men are subjecting women to domestic violence. Subordination of women to men doesn’t states that women should be treated unfairly or unjustly neither ridiculed or belittle in this regard.
I will try to motivate you in my own end. Women should stop waiting for changes, it will not happen overnight. You need to accept that you are not perfect and not everyone will love you nor appreciate you. The better step here is to have self acceptance, approve what you are, and build self-confidence. You don’t have to believe that you are perfect 10 to do things or else it will just refute your significance.
Men and women should realize their respective equal roles in this society for there is no one superior than the other and that they need to strive to complement each other.
Do you think I am an automaton? a machine without feelings?…Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong — I have as much soul as you, — and full as much heart…I am not talking to you now through the medium of custom, conventionalities, nor even of mortal flesh; — it is my spirit that addresses your spirit; just as if both had passed through the grave, and we stood at God’s feet, equal, — as we are (252) Jane Eyre
