Gender Equality; Given Attention To Or Neglect?
One of the emerging issues is Gender equality.
Actually this topic has been discussed on almost social media I know.
But if we are to look at it critically.
Many women have been abused just because the society believes that women should serve the men.
But in actual fact, I think while considering gender equality in the society, we should also discussed about the family too. As a woman, due to religious beliefs you ought to respect your husband, sometimes not really because of your husband to be happy but in order to lay a good example for the children watching both parties(the couple) as an example of life.
The children learn from the mother; respect, which means they bear in mind that whoever that has been made over you as a leader ought to be given respect, honour and courtesy which is examples of social norms and values of a progressive society/nation.
From the husband/father, the children learn; good leadership skills, love and the triplets(knowledge, wisdom and understanding, which in turn will make them to think critically in the future when they are grown ups to decide what is right for their lifea, and also enables them to look out for solution to their individual problems/challenges as they grow up.
I think that's one of the main reason why the religious books; Bible and others made the man, the head.
Now we've talked about the family, back to the society as a whole, you met a man, who is not your husband but is trying to prove gender superiority than you.
You decided to fight back, then the society tags you "irresponsible house wife fighting a man", you felt like they didn't even allow you to say your own part of the story but you decided to move on, and also protesting against gender equality.
But while moving on and while thinking on protesting, do you actually know within yourself that you still have to show your husband his respect, do you make sure that your protest doesn't affect your family standard in any way?
Let's hear your view about gender equality and where you think it is applicable, be it Family, General Society or even both.
