Little Girly Girl

bey

My inspiration today was actually from a Beyoncé song ;

We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls,
“You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man.”
Because I am female
I am expected to aspire to marriage
I am expected to make my life choices
Always keeping in mind that
Marriage is the most important
Now marriage can be a source of
Joy and love and mutual support
But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
And we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors
Not for jobs or for accomplishments

Which I think can be a good thing
But for the attention of men
We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
In the way that boys are
Feminist: the person who believes in the social
Political, and economic equality of the sexes

Girls.. Ladies, You are Unique and STRONG.

You have rights to have , voices to be heard and great abilities to show.

NEVER underestimate yourselves..

Always keep your head held up high and simply… SHINE .

  1. I dare even go as far as saying that if women had more power throughout history at certain key moments we wouldn’t have a perfect world by any means but I bet a few of the problems we do have wouldn’t be around like they are now.
    I worked with a very special lady from India for around a year in my current job and like many are she was 5 foot nothing at best, 6 stone wet and wearing wellys and couldn’t physically fight her way out of a paper bag but in many ways she was streets ahead of me as a pragmatic thinker, a listener, a calming influence on me and the type of intelligence that almost makes you sick and a lot of guts for one so small, plus she spoke Tamil, Hindi and probably better English than me! Fact is women and men can both be incredible but emphasis is on BOTH and women should be proud and ready to show that they can be amazing as well. Good post!

    1. Wow, this made me smile, Literally !
      The thing is, Women don’t get the proper appreciation , i know that from my entourage, and simply from every news related to women.. It’s always like ” women abuse ” or ” a woman was shot because lunch didn’t turn out to be so yummy ” …
      it was like something hit me the minute i listened to the song and i seriously saw little details about this case.. Of course Men experience this kind of stuff.. but It’s known that women are downgraded.
      Anyways, thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and stories with me!! you made my night !!
