What does life as a woman or girl look like in your country/city/town/village? Any issues/challenges/milestones?
In my country, people think that a woman should be modest and lower her gaze, that she should not talk about sex or female freedom and if she does, she is a whore who is tarnishing the image of our society. Men think that true women are pure and spend their time talking about religion or how much they wanna be submissive to their husbands.
I am a feminist and as so men find me intimidating and say I am rejecting my femininity, or i am wanna be a man, that I was made fragile and I am trying to appropriate men's strength.
They say, excuse harassment and cat calling, and pretend that it is women's fault for not protecting their bodies by wearing something that covers them when in fact they are excusing the savagery of their gender.
What would you like the world to know about YOU? What life experience, challenge or achievement do you want to share?
There was a Facebook group made by women for women and they were talking about their sexual experiences (all of them were married) and about what they liked. That page got hacked and educated men saw what those girls were talking about...it was a polemic. Those poor women got humiliated and insulted because they had the guts to talk about sex (marital sex as permitted in our religion) with other women. People were writing stuff like they must protect the sanctity of their bodies and minds.
I was raised to think that I was never going to be enough as a human because I was a woman... that my soul purpose, what would bring me happiness is, a man to obey and children to care for...
Complete this sentence: "To be a girl or woman today, is to be..."
Considered less, weak , incomplete by people who are way lesser, weaker and more incomplete than you. It is to always be judged, to always be in pain because our society doesn't view you as complete... a never ending combat to convince the world that you are as much human being as men, that you should have the same rights.
