Feminism

I think feminism is about an ideology to define and establish equal opportunities for women in all aspects of life and to defend their rights in society. While i applaud this ideal, i think some women are taking it too far and using feminism to "punish" men for centuries of mistreatment at the hands of men. It is unfair and unjust to use feminism as an excuse to get back at men!



For years women have been given "the short end of the stick", so to speak. They were denied education, sometimes rights to property or inheritance, physically and sexually abused and in some societies, this is still the case. A few years back i was shocked to learn that in India, women pay the dowry to men when getting married and some of them were actually murdered by their husbands as being worthless. I even heard somewhere that mothers in India sometimes abort their babies if it is discovered before birth that they are carrying a girl!



The truth is, sometimes men/ society can be cruel and selfish to women. We need to stand up and fight the injustice done to women in our societies. However there needs to be a balance between upholding women's rights and using feminism to take revenge on men and society. We need each other, men and women, and we can co-exist in harmony and mutual self respect and love. God bless you all!
