Women’s Day 2017

Frankly speaking, I have always been inspired by one woman or another at every point of my life. From my mother, my grandmother, my grandma’s sister to famous personalities like Michelle Obama, J.K. Rowling, Emma Watson etc., women have always been a great source of motivation, hope and  enlightenment for  the whole world. While some women take advantage of their freedom and democratic rights, some don’t receive any.

For all these reasons and more, after wishing the woman in your homes a great women’s day, let us all take a moment to think about the woman of the countries like Afghanistan, Mali, Nepal, Yemen, Pakistan and Ivory Coast among many others. Even in extremely developed countries like Saudi Arabia, women need to cover themselves up in uncomfortable clothings, hide their God granted beauty in the name of God and are allowed to go out to the streets only when accompanied by a man. In these places women are not provided with proper education and healthcare. They are sold at the age of 10-15 years. They are deprived, dominated and oppressed. Let us not forget that the U.S. does not provide paid maternity leave for women while less developed or developing countries like India do.

Most of today’s women are powerful, smart and independent. Let’s just let them be. Let us understand that patriarchy never got us anywhere. It’s time to shift to plan B.

Let us all believe in equity and togetherness. Let us all have a wonderful Women’s Day.

  2. You have again done very well with this post. You seem to be a person who respects women. Something very appreciable. Your post had some thought provoking lines like, ” They have to hide their God given beauty in the name of God.” A post that everyone should read. Especially those who underestimate the power of women !
