We are beautiful, we have a voice and we have the power. We are women
Why do I have to be bewildered about the level of success I set for myself? Why do I have to care about what people think of the number of hours I work weekly? Why does the society believe I have to be a lesser being compared to the opposite sex. Why was I taught to depend on the opposite sex for strength,aegis,and eternal happiness?
why is the man regarded as “the head of the house”? Why does the man have to be in control when making love?Why should I be conscious of my age while I strive for power? Why does it become difficult to find someone to marry me when I get past a certain age? Why will the society label me a slut for cheating on my unfaithful husband?why do I have to be stigmatized because I got gang raped at a young age? Men aren’t trained to stay faithful to one woman?
Why do I have to be silent about my abusive husband? I am expected to shrink myself,keep biting my tongue and let the opposite sex triumph. Why is it absurd for me to beat my physically abusive husband to stupor?i deserve to be given half a chance to prove to the world that its not all about cooking and aspiring to become a wife. The society needs to allow women live their life in accordance with their inclinations. Gender equality needs to be practised and accepted. We are all equal in the sight of the Almighty.
We all have dreams and deserve our version of events, a woman’s happily ever after should not be based on how many children she has or how well she does the laundry. She deserves to be as powerful and zealous as the man. She has a right to live a fulfilled life and be as ambitiously egotistical as the male specie.
