To be treated as a human is all we ask for , to be seen as a person is all we want, to be respected is all we're fighting for. Respect is something every woman fights for, but why do we have to fight for something that should be a human right. If men can be born with this respect why do we as women have to fight for it?
Even when I was young I could never understand why there where so many restrictions around me, but not as many around my brothers, why did I have make certain choices in order to be a good girl , why did I have to follow certain rules in order to be "woman enough" , why do we live certain ways in order to be considered a great woman by society?
Who makes these rules? why do we have to abide by them? why can't we make our own way, own decision why cant we pave our own path without society telling us what is right or wrong, without guidelines of "how to be accepted by society".
There are so many restrictions on women and I don't understand why? when boys do things were not used to we often say "boys will be boys" why cant the same thing apply to girls , why cant girls be girls too?
But then as women how do we achieve this goal , how do we empower each other to respect ourselves enough to not let our lives be ruled by unwritten society rules, how do we do that?
If we're telling the truth , it doesn't matter where you're from, whether you're from Africa, Asia, North America or Space as long as you're a woman you have to fight for respect , your identity, your worth yet somehow you can never be enough.
But we are, we are enough as long as we know and understand that we can only hope that as time goes society will see us as humans too , that society will see us as well.
