Where I come from, a woman's value is sometimes measured by their ability to cook and manage a house. Although it's great for anyone to know how to cook and clean, there are so many other things we can do. Why can't they look at our hearts? Why can't they consider our other skills? I'm more than what I can cook. I'm more than how tidy my house is. I'm more than any cage they try to push me into.
Khush Rhna Seekho :)
Someone once said to me: ‘khush rhna seekho’ and that thing, that damn thing remained stuck in my mind from that time till now. I thought that do I look so wretched that people would suggest this to me? But up to some extent, they were right, actually much more than that.
No, I Am Not Oppressed...
I have never felt oppressed by this decision and I will never feel oppressed because this is my choice. It liberates me in ways that leave me in awe almost every single day. And I am sorry to burst your bubble but I've rather felt oppressed with the way you have mocked me…
Feminism - Cultures, Stories & Change
I deserve to get equal education rights as any boy, and I deserve to get equal wages as my male counterparts. It is about receiving equal status and social respect as any other fellow. Sadly, many women in different parts of the world aren’t getting those rights. Feminism isn’t about man-hating, and if you think “why do we need feminism?”, then look at our community where girls are sexually harassed, a three year old girl is getting raped, a wife is suffering acid attacks from her husband because he didn’t like her face.
Universe In A Boot
Since I was a little girl, I was taught to behave in a specific way because I'm a girl, to dream specific dreams that are only allowed for girls, such as taking a good degree - not to make a successful career, but to marry a good rich man with a high position in society, so I can live happily ever after.
