We need each other. Men and Women. One cannot exist without the other. Thus, there shouldn’t be a battle between the sexes, so much as team work with the two. But ideas that gained traction; took flight; and gave birth to: laws, religious practices, stigmas, and major inequality between the sexes have bred a great divid between the sexes across the world.
The solution? It’s here. Encourage, love, support, cultivate, and adore each other as you would yourself. But yet, women are still fighting battles in the workplace, for their bodies, and respect in general. Things are looking up, the next era and generation will be so much better off given the pioneers of yesterday and today being brave enough to demand change.
The evolution must continue with embodying certain values in all of ourselves. And, no one should be exempt from guilt for perpetuating old concepts of gender roles. Once parents and communities start raising little girls to compete for accomplishments the same way boys are taught, then we will see equality, so long as this is done without any judgements about women desiring to be creators, leaders, or taking control of their own sexuality.
The healing process has started, and should be protected in order for the process to return the desired result. Equality.
