BREAK THE SILENCE…
Our world has made and is still continuing to make huge victories in the fields of science,technology,medicine,tourism and the list goes on but the question of women discrimination is still left unanswered. Throughout the history women have always been victims of discrimination. Men’s large desire for power and control make them think women are mere worthless objects. But why does their forget the fact that they slept in the womb of a women for 9 months!
Millions of women still continue to fight for their own rights. India known as the land of civilization is also known for its high percentage of female feticide, when a girl child is born she is always considered a burden to the parents. This itself shows how brutal the world is to her even before she is born. It is also said that every three minutes a girl is raped and even with all the laws and regulations existing no man gets the punishment he deserves for the crime. Even on the basics of religion and social class she suffers discrimination. In countries like Saudi Arabia women are asked to cover themselves from head to toe and are also restricted from driving. In many Middle East countries also women aren’t allowed to leave their houses without the guidance of a men. Even in British, women are paid less compared to men though both does the same job.
Even today many parents think men should only be educated as their are the supporters of house whereas educating women isn’t necessary because one day she will get married and leave the house. Therefore she need to learn only cooking and is believed to stay only within the four walls of the house. But the fact is they isn’t a single sector left untouched by women, she has even conquered space. Yet she remains worthless!
Most of the gender disparities and stereotypes are created by the society alone. Society classifies jobs for women and men, and even if women try to does men’s job she is never considered different. The society should rather aim to educate both men and women the need for women empowerment. The UN states has started to promote the progress of female rights. And it is high time for other countries to make women free from discrimination. It might take time to make a huge change and let we be the first to make that change. There are still millions of women crying out silently unable to speak out their struggles. Let us wish for a world where women would live without the fear of discrimination,rape,violence,education,health care and above all the power to vote.
