If you are a regular on my
blog, you’d probably know how I feel on topics related to women. Perhaps it has
got to do with my being one or it might just be due to the unfavorably skewed social
fabric for women; the reason could be either or both! The simple fact is we
need to voice out the concerns of women loud and clear, over and over again, to
eradicate the petty prejudices that plague the world we live in. So here I am again
writing on a topic close to my heart, about
WOMEN & for WOMEN!
About a month back Sunita who writes at SuKupedia™ !!! honored
me by giving me the opportunity to pen a guest post for her blog. I love her blog. She has this amazing ability to write on a wide range of topics and that too with panache! Ofcourse, I also love the name she chose for her blog, I wish I had thought of something like that too!
So when she contacted me for a few
days I wondered what would be the topic apt for a post on her diverse blog. It is then
that I realized what better than a post
for WOMEN written by a WOMAN on a WOMAN’s blog! After all, it is us women
who need to keep sounding the warning bells for our sisters around the world as often as we can!
So here’s an effort from Sunita and I towards keeping women’s issues
on the forefront. Hope you like it and more importantly think about it.
What is the worth of a woman in your
eyes? Is she only someone’s daughter or wife? Is her life only defined by the
dishes she cooks for her husband and family? Is her life only for smoothing out
the creases in her family’s life? Is being a cook and cleaner all that is there
to her existence? What is the worth of a woman?
conversation with an acquaintance a few months back, I realized again
how awfully narrow minded our society’s perception of the fairer sex really
is. Abysmal and depressing to say the least! Everything related to the female
gender is scoffed at by this perennially pathetic society of ours. It makes me
sad and angry at the same time. I don’t know about you but I certainly feel
India is among those countries where women are viewed only through the tainted
glasses of prejudice. We as a society are extremely regressive when it
comes to women which believe me is not a pleasant thing to know especially when
you yourself are a woman.
