A Society where a woman/girl is made to feel there is something wrong with being a woman/girl.
A society where we have second class Human Beings (Women/girls) who matter less.
A society where the birth of a baby boy is celebrated and the birth of a baby girl is mourned.
A society where if all your children are girls you are mocked and if they are boys you are celebrated.
A society that made pink a feminine color and blue a masculine color.
A society where a girls is bought dolls and kitchen items as toys to shape her mind at a tender age to be custodians of gender roles and boys are bought helicopters, guns, cars and aeroplanes to groom them to be future Engineers, soldiers and other productive personnel.
A society where a woman is forced to change her name and adopt her husband’s name and the man proudly bear his father’s name forever.
A society where an empowered woman is considered rude, arrogant and disrespectfu, and an empowered man is celebrated.
A society that advices women not own and showcase material things just beccause the opposite sex will be intimidated by that and celebrates successful men.
A society where it is only the responsibility of a woman to cater for a child which was not only her decision alone to bring to the world.
A society where if a man cooks and take care of his child, he needs to be thanked for that and a woman does that her entire life and is still seen as her duty in life.
A society where the voice of men matters than that of women even with the equal rights and equal opportunity theory.
A society where a woman is expected to compromise her work and education just for the comfort of a man even with the equal stress and financial resources lost to bring her to where she is just as the man.
Is this a just society?
We need a change…
We need a better world.
My heart bleeds for myself, mothers, sisters, aunts and friends!
