Equality of Men and Women

“The world of humanity has two wings — one is women and the other men. Not until both wings are equally developed can the bird fly. Should one wing remain weak, flight is impossible. Not until the world of women becomes equal to the world of men in the acquisition of virtues and perfections, can success and prosperity be attained as they ought to be.

Why don’t men see that women need their help to be seen as equals? Why don’t women see that whenever we use “whore, bitch, slut” we are putting ourselves down? We are degrading ourselves to the piece of meat that arrogant men labeled us as a hundred years ago. Why don’t sexists understand that it was their mother, a woman, who gave birth to them? Who brought them to this world, who raised them, and nursed them. My God–we are still so far behind. There are so many men who still believe a woman can’t be president. My God, help us. There is not a bigger barrier standing between peace than sexism. How can the world move forward when half of its population isn’t even held to the same degree of respect and expectation?

Ladies, stand up for yourselves. Men, stand up for us too. We need you.
