Beat a Drum, Not a Woman

Gender based discrimination is the most tolerated voilation of human rights on earth today! Gender equality isn't a woman's issue, it's an human issue. It does affects us all. Gender based voilence anywhere is threat to peace & security everywhere in different phases as education, health, economic or domestic. Its not enough just to treat women well. We have to make sure All men treat women well. It's time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideas. WE SHOULD STOP DEFINING EACH OTHER FOR WHAT WE ARE NOT, AND START DEFINING OURSELVES BY WHO WE ARE. We are put on this earth to achieve greatest self, to live out our purpose, and to do it courageously. The real problem that we fail, is the way that power is given out in our society pits us against each other. For jobless to lack of education and professional skills to sexual and gender based voilence. Women face a multi-faceted oppression. We should demand the independence of woman ; her right to support herself ; To Love whomsoever she pleases, or as many as she pleases. We should demand Freedom of both sexes, Freedom of action, Freedom of love and Freedom of Motherhood. I RAISE UP MY VOICE - NOT SO, I COULD SHOUT, BUT SO THOSE WITHOUT A VOICE CAN BE HEARD. WE CANNOT SUCCEED WHEN HALF OF US ARE HELD BACK. Together we can help both men and women stand up for their rights and support them to bring the best version for themselves for tomorrow.

Dear Zainshaw,

This is definitely one of the most important reasons that we share information and ideas here within WorldPulse. We are born into a time in which it assumed that men have a right to dominate, even harm and kill, women. There is no reason for this, but the idea is engrained. Every time we voice our expectation of and determination for a different world, with women free and safe in all the ways you outline, we become closer to our goal.

In sisterhood,

Dear tam

Good day, well women is an idealistic figure of sacrifices. For all purposes women is brought down to an inferior level. Men couldn't withstand the success or the ongoing wellness of the females. Females are trapped within the confined borders of dowry, domestic household work, not educating much, prone to crime etc. Which has made females to drag back and not empower.
