Women have contributed to the world a lot. For example, caring, feeding and teaching children. So why don’t they have the same rights as men do? Why don’t they fight for it?
Just look at all the 45 presidents of the United States, why isn’t there any women? People think women are not smart enough to be in positions like these.
Talking about legal right, women in many countries are target of domestic violence and have no right to speak against it.
They have no right to divorce and are left to live with people for life they have no mental match.
They also do not have same inheritance rights as men.
Many cultures also do not allow them to do certain jobs, especially the late night ones.
They are also not allowed to leave their homes without being accompanied by their men.
But why don’t they fight back?
Is it that because they are not educated to fight when they are young. When they see their mothers cleaning after each meals while their father watches TV, or when they see the mother gives the last bit of food to their brother, they think that it is right and should always be done like that, and that they cannot survive without a man protecting them.
But the fact is that they need to know that women should be treated right.
Also those who are lucky to enjoy equal rights should fight for the less privileged.
I like a quote from Hillary Clinton, “Human rights are women’s right, and women’s right are human right”.
So why not treat them as human beings? Please share your opinion with me in the comment section below.
