“A woman is human.
She is not better, wiser, stronger, more intelligent, more creative, or more responsible than a man.
Likewise, she is never less.
Equality is a given.
A woman is human.”
Cheers to women!!
Yes, we are human. We are equals, no less or more than anyone else.
It is sad that women in large parts of the world are still made to feel inferior because they are born women. God did not intend to make either sex inferior, or superior. He just made us different. It is we, who have created these divides. On the other hand, I do not agree with the superiority complex that some people have, either, whether they are men or women.
Don’t use your gender as a crutch to prove your excellence. Make the effort to go that extra mile. Do not pull down someone else to make yourself look taller. That victory is transient, at best.
I wish to see a world where we do not need the words ‘better’ or ‘worse’, where we are all happy to have our own place under the sun, and happy to let other’s have theirs. It is up to us to create that world.
We can’t wait for change to arrive. We can’t wait for someone else to change the world. We don’t have enough time in our lives for that. We have to be that someone, that agent of change, that beginning. We have to take the first step, however tiny and chart a new course. We have to create a world where no Women’s Day will be needed to celebrate our own selves.
What better day to begin, than today!
As women, let us be not better, or worse, but ourselves, beautiful in our own convictions, confident in our own capabilities and at peace with who we are. As women, let us not be silent at injustice but learn to stand up for our rights, and stand beside others in their hour of need. As women, let us smile, and shine, without apology. As women, let us always remember that we are enough.
