LIVING AS A WOMEN IN A CHAUVINISTIC SOCIETY
I woke Up this morning to the sound of a beautiful tune. One id heard of but never experienced .
A sight that warmed the coldest day a dream coming true right before my eyes tears fall from my eyes as I saw the smiles of strong ,beautiful,women who have come from all over the world to empower, support and mentor those in need. ideas and dreams becoming a reality.
Too good to imagine women putting all there experience to benefit each other to build from what was broken to create greatness.
We are far from this being a permanent state of consciousness, feminism itself is seen with negative eyes. The moment you call yourself a feminist, you are looked upon as a woman with no family values and no respect ,tradition and in short, you are not a typical woman who will give up certain things for the so-called sake of family. Though younger generation definitely is getting better in treating women however today's youth have completely misguided norms brought upon by years of watching the people around them treating women as property belonging to men,whose rights aren't as important as the opposite sex almost treating women as children.
Being non-chauvinist requires little more than courtesy. A man could easily be non-chauvinist but extremely sexist. He could believe in a natural role for women ( biologically determined or as part of the necessary structure of society) and expect that women who did not play that role would be unhappy. This is sexist, but if he accepted a woman's right to decide for herself whether or not to play that role he would not be chauvinist Yet, female equality still has problems to face.
As an example lets take an IT organization where a female gets promoted sooner than other peers. Even if the female is a geek, chances are really high that the women is going to be called arrogant, overbearing, boot licker and has ass kissed her way up. All this, just because men find it difficult to accept that a woman has just shown that she is capable of getting a promotion sooner than her peers by means of hard work. Or in the case where organizations fire women for being pregnant because they say it reflects badly on them to have a woman who is carrying another life in her Which should be a joy turns into something to be ashamed of and how nobody in those organizations can stand up and say no on behalf of their colleague it saddens me how far off we are in the 21 century Where .Almost all chauvinist behavior consists of treating women as if they were things or animals . I read on another blog which talks about about female chauvinism gets triggered when there is excessive male chauvinism.
After all we are all human beings. But feminists being misunderstood to be female chauvinists is completely unfair. Is it wrong if a woman prefers to be herself, prefers to have her own identity and not to change her identity after a so-called marriage, prefers to have dreams, goals, ambitions and to work towards them, prefers to be treated fairly. Feminists advocate equality of men and women not superiority of women over men. But I feel that society puts more and more pressure on achieving women and they feel compelled to turn towards female chauvinism. I mean if for a woman, standing up for herself against atrocities and retaliating back is going to considered female chauvinism, which by the way it is really not, then women are better off being female chauvinists.all I want is that women be treated equally as human beings and that I don't want to beg for rights from men,i do not aim at putting men down, but they like to live their lives as they want of course keeping in mind their responsibilities as men i do not want to be treated inferior because of being women.
I want to end this post by urging you to be part of the change you hope to see. Stop treating women as second class citizens Just because something is part of your past doesn’t make it right. We have evolved from tradition. Our place in taking care of the home has Evolved into supporting economic political and social growth because we are capable of it all and by supporting each other we will get there.
