Introducing myself: Rochy.

Posted August 1, 2011 from Argentina

I'm a 24 year old girl from Argentina. I live in Mar del Plata, it's a city in the middle coast of Argentina, I would like to participate with you, I'm interested in women empowerment because here in my country, although we are not suffering the same as the countries from Middle East and other countries, we still have gender issues. Not only some men discriminate or belittle women but also themselves do it. And I must admit that just that bothers me a lot. But my main reason why I want to be a part of this is because I met a lot of people from Middle East, many girls of my age and also older ladies who suffer the rules of those countries, who are victims of men ancient rules. I read a lot about people from Africa and other countries who suffer the same abuses. I think women from all the world need to live with dignity and be free to choose whether to get married or not, if they want to study some other thing but 'education' they have to be allowed to do it, etc. women are as intelligent as men and sometimes much more and the rules they have to obey are ridiculous, I would like to have the knowledge to investigate and write proper things about them and also help them to brake free, to get the same oportunities I have and start living the life they deserve. I want to be a part of the change.
