What is this International Women’s Day thing? You think all this makes a difference to you and me? What has changed in your life since you celebrated it in 2019?And what is women empowerment after all?
These questions must be rallying in each of your minds but they start clamouring louder around this time of the year when the commercial world is out to make a kill out of our mass stupidity!
A woman who brings in a new life in this world, nurtures her saplings and gives them the right mental nutrition and sends them out into the world as able minded and capable humans is not weak or deprived in any way!
So, instead of celebrating a commemorative day in honour of her existence, give her the weapon of education and freedom at birth, so that she brings forth a better progeny, a boy or a girl…who is empowered to think right and treat this mankind at equal parlance! And it starts at home with the women alone.
So, take it from me, no point blaming the menfolk! Its we the women, the culprits as well as the emancipators! The back biters, the jealous alley cats and nurturers who inadvertently poison the tender minds, who bring up children with pre conceived notions on gender specific behaviour. Have a good day dear all and don’t wish me Happy Women’s Day!Taking a line out of the great Erica Jong quote:
“Women are their own worst enemies. And guilt is the main weapon of self torture…Show me a woman who doesn’t feel guilty and I will show you a man.”
Erica Jong, Fear of Flying (1973)
