It’s often said that if a woman stands up for herself knowing possibly without claiming, she is also standing up for other women.
Firstly, feminism is the radical notion that women and people and should have equal rights and opportunities as men in terms of Education, politics and so much more.
Women are humans,our sisters,our wives and our mothers. Do we just sit back and watch their dreams and aspirations killed.
A man has dreams, talents, skills and so do women. Let a girl child follow her dreams to wherever they take her to. She can do a lot more than you can ever imagine.
I know that every day, there is a girl who is not allowed to chase her dreams and rule her world. Why? When a boy is out there maximizing his potential to his optimum satisfaction.
Her happiness doesn’t only lie in the kitchen. There is no happiness is relying on a man’s wealth. A complete woman is someone who is independent and has succeeded in creating a life for herself. There is no limit to what a woman can do. A woman is God’s treasured gift to humanity.
You may call me a feminist but I am not free when any other fellow woman like me out there is not even though her shackles are quite different from mine.
The sky is not even the limit for a girl child. How can the sky be the limit when there are footprints on the moon?
I know a male child is superior to a female one. I acknowledge that but all in all, we are all humans and should be treated equally and accorded the same respect.
Respect women! Give them equal chances! Let’s make the world a better place together.
