Why does Rapunzel have to be rescued by a man? Why does Arora have to be woken up by a prince? Well this is called cultural belief. In many of today’s societies, there are some roles that are thought to be for men but not for women.
Men believe that women are weaker, less intelligent, and both physically and mentally inferior. When they say this to a woman, nothing happens to the person saying but to woman, it is like tearing a part of her soul. Imagine if the same happens to men, won’t their feeling be the same as women?
Women also have lesser choices of work than men. For example, in some countries, women cannot be leaders. They also get less paid for the same jobs as men.
They also get lesser things like love, food, happiness, etc. just because they are thought to be inferior.
Education is also very important for all human beings. How come ignore women? Women are also human beings. It is believed that men do the important work, so they need education. Women do all the housework, which is known as easy work, so they don’t need education.
International Day of the Girl Child is here to discard all the wrong beliefs and show both genders are equal.
