Feminist, according to Oxford dictionary means; A person who supports the belief that women should have the same rights and opportunities as men. Even from this definition I still don’t get the reason for the social misconception. These are women with goals and purpose. Women who believe in the working together of both sexes to bring about a safer and better world. I believe we are in a generation where women are breaking ground rules, making things right and giving great support to men.
I totally don’t see the point in hating a woman just because she’s got dreams and opinions of her own. She’s got mind and brain to think, she can feel and see, she is talented and hardworking, she is bold and courageous, why then should she be reduced to a sex figure just because of her gender and social expectations. Some people even hate the idea of a woman being in a superior position or taking a leading role, last I checked the contribution of women to the world positively can’t be overemphasized. Is it the listening hear, the soothing words, the caring hands, the comfortable shoulders, the intelligence, the beauty, the ability to multitask, the reader, the leader, a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother and with all these, women still contribute their best.
We have women in almost all fields if not all; Politics, Law, Aviation, Fashion, Medicine, Banking, Military, Sports, Entertainment, Academics, Defence, Engineering, Programming, Agriculture, just name it. I don’t get the reason for the misconception about who a feminist is, this is just a woman who knows better than to waste her gifts and talents tending to only home when a lot of people are on the street whom she can help. She is wise enough to take care of home and also smart enough to live a purposeful life. I respect men, in fact, i am not a bra burning extreme sort of feminist, I don’t even agree with a lot of opinions and anger towards men, but I do have sense enough to know I wasn’t meant to be controlled by a man, other than the big guy upstairs that created everyone.
I know to pursuit my goals, actualize my dreams and be the best at whatever I do. I know to love and be loved, to care, to live and succeed. I know I deserve whatever I want, every available opportunities and rights.
I am an EMPOWERED WOMAN!
