This word ‘Feminism’ is so easy for someone to say but so difficult to explain. The world has various theories, various quotes, various memes about feminism. For some people it’s only about dresses, for some insulting opposite gender, for some giving long lectures about what we should do and shouldn’t, for some a matter of 3 minute of empowerment when they see some articles about feminism.
What feminism truly stands for and the most important stands for whom? A girl with iPhone on their hand sharing ‘why school sucks’. I am not a great thinker or some lecturer to explain ‘Feminism’, I have seen very little of the world, but as being the youth and the future of my country, I can only explain what It should stand for.
I am going to tell you a story today — A little girl in the ruins of war worn, war torn Syria, after her mother died of felling the whole house upon her, caring for her brothers and she is merely 14, I don’t know her, but it just pains me to see that this child if given the opportunity, She can become anything, but what we are giving her? Bombs, blood, bullets — how beautiful this world is, how nasty we humans are.
I need not go to abroad for explaining the means of ‘Feminism’, My country has the black marks on her forehead. In some states, giving birth to a girl is sin, it is a shame for me that girl, today, in 21st century still is a caged Bird. I am born into a family of free thinkers but I too have seen stereotypes which makes me sick. The dowry is still living, still we, fear, the gender whom was given birth by our gender. Years gone, some women touching the moon and some watching moon from her cage.
Women’s if they are given chance, giving the education, support and love, They can fly higher than eagle. I am writing this post but I can never save all the women suffering for having the eye to look upon the stars, but I will save women whenever I have the chance if I don’t, I will rush to them in their needs. If all women come together and all the men too, cause men and women complete each other. Think, how we can overcome bigger storms? If we are worried about our own cat fights of who is stronger men or women. I really don’t want people to label a women’s beauty by calling her Britten, Blondie, brownie, ugly, fat, skinny. As well, I don’t want men to be bullied cause they like pink, or they love cooking. Both genders should know cooking as neither sexism nor feminism can save you when you are hungry.
Women are as enchanting as rainbows, the eyes of the beholder matters as whom will love them, would value them for their true color. Feminism is not holding a banner, or prove us to be a great person. It is about taking small initiative to help those near you, to stand on your feet so that you can stand by the people who are desperately waiting for a hand, waiting for a smile that you could provide.
‘Feminism’ starts with you….
