While my travel tales and the pictures will take some time getting downloaded, I have something to share with you all.
I often wonder a lot about the subtler aspects of gender inequality, not just because as a privileged member of the woman community (because I was allowed to be born, educated and chose my partner and yes, in some countries like ours, this is privilege!!) the subtler aspects are the ones witnessed more by me.. but also because of how little anything is written about these, so much so that many women feel like they’re “making a mountain of a molehill” if they ever think something is being done to them.
I can safely say that I haven’t met a single woman who doesn’t have to “keep her opinion to herself” in atleast one setting – at her home, her workplace or her friend circle, for the fear of being thought of as someone who’s either “always overreacting” or “too aggressive” or as it is often said in jest, “just crazy!”
Here’s to those women. Please read this. Would implore those men who are prepared not to trash it as “hormones”, to read too. (I discovered this article through Unmana’s blog, and found it worth sharing with everybody):
