A for Alike #AToZChallenge
My daughter is like my son.
She leads her team like a man.
She is strong, confident and bold. Just like a man.
I am sure like me, you have heard these sentences. At home or at work when people compare a woman to a man, they don’t really mean to say anything else other than the female is very good. However, they end up comparing her with the benchmark they have set. A bar that they think, only a man can achieve.
Men or women don’t want to be treated like the other. They wanted to be treated are they are. As equals. Equal responsibilities, equal pay, and equal respect are what both men and women want. No privileges and no special treatments based on the gender.
Let a man be a man and let a woman be who she is. They have their own personality traits and their own strengths. They will do things differently and succeed in what they do. Let’s stop differentiating and let’s start thinking of equality. If we want a world that’s free of any prejudices and biases, it starts from us. Our thoughts and actions will lead us to what we want to see.
By not treating men and women alike but by treating them like equals.
Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.

I am participating in the A To Z Challenge for the third time this year and I am penning Stories from everyday life.
