Women create life and have qualities of loving, caring and nurturing traits. It therefore means that we play an important role in the lives of everyone on Earth; even Earth itself is a mother caring for those utilizing her resources. No doubt without a woman life is incomplete. After all God has created both men and women, how else would life be sustained?
Despite being in the 21st century, women still face a lot of struggles having to work twice as hard to gain their accolades and even more harder to have them recognized. Times have changed but some of the negative and belittling thoughts regarding women are still rampant- those thinking should have aged and changed with time. Women’s empowerment and gender equality is the rationale behind development and sustainability.
It’s hard to say switch the roles of men and women, each has skills the other doesn’t. Men are more of the physical strength type and us women more of the emotional and tedious strength. Today we both work together for sustained development which has made changes to our lives- the gender norms; but I have decide that I will not allow a man to control the details of my life- I am in charge of my life… I AM ME!
I have overcome my fears in life and will go forward as an equal and integral part of society and I will be treated as such. My contributions matters and will be respected by me and others as I will respect theirs. No more insulting us with gendered rules and societal norms.
We have come a long way to being EMPOWERED women.
