X for X-form #AtoZChallenge
A word that’s on the mind of everyone who stands up for feminism.We need to change and we need to bring change in many ways. It is not just about the actions but the way we think. The very first thing about a change is the understanding of the cause and why we are fighting for it. Feminism is about equality and that should be on the agenda of every feminist.
While this blog speaks a lot about women, crimes against them, equality and what ought to be, this blog is equally supportive of men. I am sure both men and women who read this blog would strive to bring equality and lead by example.
In our strive to achieve equality and voice our concerns, sometimes men’s rights are forgotten. That’s not how it should be. Equality is to say that a man shouldn’t give up his seat to a woman. He should to a pregnant woman or an old man. To a child or to someone differently-abled. And exactly the same goes for women. Same rules.
You may have heard of the various complaints that are filed against men. It is right to prosecute them for the crimes they may have committed but it’s not fair when the crime is framed. A proper investigation should be the first rule without even deciding that a woman is always at the receiving end. Even women can play games.
Men’s health is of equal importance as a woman’s. It has been found through researches that even men ignore their well-being. The way we expect the man of the house to look after the woman of the house, a woman needs to do the same. They are both homemakers and breadwinners.
All work can be done by a man or a woman and both need to be respected for their work. At home or outside of it. To transform is to be able to get that mindset and work towards it.
I am blogging from A to Z during April and the theme I have chosen is set on women. I am also a minion on co-host Pam’s Unconventional Alliance along with Claire, Shalini and Rajlakshmi. Visit us, show us some love and don’t leave without sharing your thoughts.
