“Men and women have roles-their roles are different, but their rights are equal.”

                                                                 -Harri Holkeri

     In today’s modern generation there’s been a lot of change found in giving priority to the woman’s education and job. In the olden day’s women were neither allowed to be educated nor to earn a livelihood. They were forced to only do the household chores and take care of the family. Apart from this ,women had no self-respect in the society, in other words men always looked down upon on women and had given no time to know about the interests of women, but as the days passed women and men were treated equally in respect to their job ,education and interests.

“Women is like a tea bag-you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.”

                                                                 -Eleanor Roosevelt

          Nowadays its often observed that women are given equal opportunity in all jobs except in few higher positions such as in sports, air force, army and politics, etc. It’s not that women are not good at performing in that specific category but it’s that they are not given opportunity to prove themselves to the world because of the typical mentality of few men that women shouldn’t do a specific task. But once the women is given an opportunity she would definitely grab it and prove her talent to the world.

“Any society that fails to harness the energy and creativity of its women is at a huge disadvantage in the modern world.”

                                                                      -Tian Wei

        Sometimes it so happens that with family and tutor’s support and grace, a women tries to stand on her own feet but since the fact that she’s a girl some men become the obstacle as they take the advantage of it and either sexually harass her or blackmail her as they are jealous of women being successful, leading to disappointment and making the women setback her goal.

“It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals.

We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are.”

                                                                        -Emma Watson

       In my perspective, both women and men should be treated equally in respect to all occupations. I’m happy the fact that there’s been a plethora’s of change from the couple of years and I also hope to see further more in the upcoming future. I hope that at least the unborn eyes shall have all the support from men in all walks of their life.

“Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive.

Both men and women should feel free to be strong.”

                                                                        -Emma Watson

So, I request all my readers (whether boy or girl) to spread this awareness of supporting women so that all men are conscious before subsiding the spirit in women to pursue something. I request all brothers to support their sisters, fathers to support daughters, husbands to support wives, one women to support the other in every step they take.
