I remember when I first heard about this term. I didn’t knew what it meant so I googled it.
“Feminism is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, personal, and social equality of sexes. ” – that’s the definition you will get in the first link. It was established to achieve equality of sexes or both sex not just females as it is considered to be believed today.
Surprisingly, very few people know the exact definition of feminism inspite of it being the most common trend in today’s world. But it’s not really surprising because we humans have a tendency to mold things the way we want them to be and not see it as they are.
For what it was, this was started to empower women to be equal to men to give them equal rights, equal opportunities and equal freedom. But has it made any significance change?
What I see around me is still a male dominant world or better to say society dominant world where not just men rule but women ourselves help them be the king to our society.
I see one women berating the other women to be less than any men whether it’s our mothers, sisters, relative or just a neighborhood aunty.
I see a mother telling her daughter that something is wrong with them if you want to have sex. What they teach is sex is a sin for women.
Then why does sex becomes so important after marriage when you want your kids to have kids of their own then suddenly all these women are giving advises on how to Be a good wife and satisfy your husband. Why does these definitions change for us according to my marital status? Why is sex still not a sin for every women after her marriage? And it’s always a necessity for every male whether married or unmarried as far as they get to cheat on their partners in the name of being “not satisfied”.
This is one scenario which has always been a taboo for years and will be for God knows how long. But is it fair for a mother to tell her child to cut her hair so no boy can lust at her? How does my long hair attract male attention that’s how close it is as attractive to someone as breathing is!
No mom! My long hair is not a problem, the problem lies within you. The problem lies within every guy who rapes a girl. The problem lies within every society which thinks working late at night, wearing shorts clothes, expressing yourself on social media, going to a male friends house is not what a good girl should do! The problem lies within every person and their thinking. That problem lies within you too mom which forces you to judge every other girl, even your own daughter.
Today when I went online I saw a picture, a picture of a beautiful free soul which I have always admired for being free. But what I saw next probably is the reason that I don’t see such souls anymore. All I saw on her pictures were comments of being a randi, attention seeker, someone who degrades the feminism and some even as far as “thank god, I don’t have a daughter”. Mam thank god that God never gave you a daughter because if he had; you would have murdered her soul along ago! As for what her these comments are for, is because she posted a seminude picture with just her undergarments to protect her image. All I did see today was a war very similar to the one engaged decades ago for women rights, the difference was just that the dates have shifted the methods have shifted but deep down we are still way too backward to accept a women for all her glory.
In all these years the women have indeed been able to emerge in every field but we still fail to achieve our basic rights, the right to express, the right to demand, the right to freedom, the right to equality; and without any of these the feminism is always going to be misheard and misunderstood.
Someone had said “the repression of feminism has led to the decline of this planet, the re-emergence is going to be a dance to behold.”
It indeed will be…
