The Weaker Sex!

For sometime, I’ve been thinking and having this guilt; of spilling this out- buried in within me.So we call them ‘a sex which is weak’?; always is my mind pondering about this thought. Living in denial is what they go through, women and to a greater extent.

From what I was raised hearing an knowing, seeing; a woman ‘The weaker sex.’ I think this was passed not on assumptions but evidence. True it was ans it has been; they have for long been rendered as ‘weak’, incapable, slow…which all had paved a wide way for undermining and underestimating them.
In the end, denying them privileges in the end at first-which they didn’t fight for lowered their esteem.

Jumping to this day, today;look at ‘a woman’,so dynamic-taking on all tasks there is.Comparing her with yesterday’s woman who we all along referred to as ‘weak’, incapable…So, influential she is today,from the kitchen- serving to the the offices-employing not only fellow women but men!. This is today, she has moved a great mile,proved it beyond doubt that she is equally effective and hardworking as a man; she can perform and deliver on time any task assigned to her, smart, organized, focused and a good planner. On top of the endless list of tasks she delivers, the fact that she can sustain pregnancy; a ‘crucial period’ in a human life,- a bond she creates between and among the human creation, makes her standout, not as the ‘weaker’ sex!
