Women, the pillars of society, the life-givers, the descendants of glory and strength have to fight every day and every minute for their place. We challenge patriarchy every day. The weaker gender is what we are known as, subordinates to the power of men but we don’t give up and put up a fight for the smallest of things. It’s actually frightening how much hatred and judgment is thrown at women who try to speak up. For me, the best way to move on from the long-held patriarchal standards is to be educated. So that no one can blind you from what rightly is yours. To be independent is the strongest weapon one can have.
I have often seen families trying to stop girls from achieving higher education or basic schooling. When one of such conditions was presented in front of me, I spoke my mind for someone and I was thankful for it because it taught me that our voice matters. So I implore you, don’t give up and speak.
