The True Essense of Feminism (continued)

A continuation of Feminism?

Along with making women strong, we must also strive to allow the men to understand and respect us. We must feel free and safe enough to go out at any time, instead of making us stay in a house. Then, we’d know that men do respect us.

So please ladies, if u are wearing a ‘short’ dresses, don’t categorize it under feminism. It’s your lifestyle. Don’t mislead others.

To quote an example, I remember a post that I read on Facebook. There was a girl who was having her periods and roamed around the city with the stains and whenever any women approached her to tell about it, she considered it as a shame. She wrote that the women who came forward to offer her a pad didn’t respect the natural cycles and are ashamed of it. But girl, that wasn’t brave of you. That was stupidity. A pad is not to hide weakness, it’s for hygiene. This was a perfect example of misleading people.

What does a woman want? Is it the era of a perfect family, a perfect husband or children, just so that she would dedicate her whole life for that sake? It hasn’t changed that much, but due to the need of the hour, now wants one thing for sure. Respect!

To ‘help’ women protect themselves, many organizations have come forward. But is that what we need? Is this the goal of feminism? I believe not!

I don’t say that what the organizations are doing is wrong, but this is just making us more dependent on them than empowering us. So what is going wrong here? Why is the notion of feminism so mistaken?

We women should understand the true meaning of it. We are not here to fight against the men. We fight against the odds. Respect means equality. We are not here to
snatch the opportunities from men. We are merely here to create our own opportunities. To free ourselves from all the clutches in which we have been trapped for many years. To be free from all the burden that is put on us by ‘society’.

Giving us ‘reservations’ or ‘exemptions’ is not what we require. We require ‘Equality’. Reservations are a weakness in disguise. It will not empower us but will make us ‘used to it’. What if we are gifted? There is no need for ‘help’ from the fake hands that show up with hidden intentions.
