Why Being A Woman In Our Generation Should Unite Us

Why Being A Woman In Our Generation Should Unite Us

This is a post for all women.

You are nothing but empowering to the future generations of our ladies!

You are taking charge with your life and your future.

We are all individuals, but we are living in a society in which we are still not getting equal pay. We have gender roles that stratify our lives in society, but I’m here to tell you. Live in your own role. Do whatever you want, do what you want for your future.

Margaret Thatcher said, “If you want something said, ask a man… if you want something done, ask a woman.

Take initiative of your life and never let that go. Never let anyone else decide whether or not your doings are wrong.

“We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you would threaten the man. Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.”

We can all break that stereotype. We can all transform. It’ll take time, but for certain we can do little things that’ll make up the bigger parts of this world.

In Angel Sunlight’s article, she ends her post by saying:

“They were all women; women who, despite of their feminist and moral views, were very much alike. They, like all women, have dreams, they all have flaws. To bash another woman is to hurt our gender, just as much as the women who date older men to get further in their lives. It’s a woman’s business (notice: a woman, not a girl under 18) what kind of relationship she has in her life. While it is not the best of choices in the fight to be equal with men, we need to stick together—not tear each other apart in order to go forward as a gender.”

So ladies, shall we stick together and end this judgement of each other. Instead, let us embrace our differences and look at this world with a wider perspective. We are all the same, we all have dreams and aspirations... and we all have boundaries. But together, maybe not in our generation, but for our daughters, for our granddaughters, they might have a chance to live in a society dictated not by female gender roles or marriage expectations, but a society dictated by their dreams.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate. Some religions like the Islam do not even celebrate Christmas and then you have others, the Buddhists, who use the holiday to practice their religion of spreading peace and goodwill. In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
