Feminism. What is this? The advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes. Do we women know the meaning of equality? It means equality in status, rights and opportunities. So, this automatically means we are demanding to be treated like men. Like it’s acceptable for a male to hit a female? Or it’s fine if he doesn’t offer her to sit first? Demanding equality yet still expecting chivalry is wrong. You can either have one or the other.
Women are created with much sweetness and perpetual love. She is a sparkling diamond. Woman is a beautiful tapestry of intense feelings and emotions. She is rewarded with an exquisite feeling of being a mother. She has an incredible and miraculous power to heal with the warmth and aura of her multi dimensional energy. There is only one thing wrong with her, she forgets what she is worth.
Why should I grapple for equality? Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.
“Our generation is becoming so busy trying to prove that women can do what men can do, that women are losing their uniqueness. Women weren’t created to do everything a man can do. Women were created to do everything a man can’t do”.
Yet, this is a misconception of feminism that equality must be the first priority, but everyone should know that there is a gender difference in between, which can’t make them equal. Feminism is not giving equal rights to women, but giving the rights that they actually deserve. Though, the rights of men and women maybe difficult to distribute equally, but it can be implemented on men and women separately.
