As a woman, what insights/realizations have you gained especially in terms of your own right in our society?
On the other hand as a man or part of the LGBTQ+ what have you learned or realized? (300 words)
As a woman, many changes have occurred to get to where we are as a whole world right now. Listening and reading to what women were treated to in the past has been a sore wound that will take time for us to all heal. It has come as a great realization that these rights we have now protect our sisters and mothers from that and make sure that history never repeats itself. Women are at the core of any community; having women speak up and be part of any society's leadership will change how we live as a country. It is high time we let society change and our small family units and let women be heard and respected.
Over the years, a culture has let women receive abuse from home and even out in
public. That culture developed into rape and other unnatural abuse that no
human should go through. In most societies, this was the norm; only later in
the 1950s were women allowed to vote in America. It comes as no surprise as
there are countries where women voting has been prohibited and makes it worse,
driving. As a woman, I have come to be appreciative of my rights and how far
they took to be implemented, and the respect of the women and people that
fought for that change.
As a man or LGBTQ+, it is a realization that all human beings are created equal,
and respect should go all around. No human should be subject to abuse; human
rights apply to everyone, and chauvinistic type of would should be left in the
past where it belongs. We all need to join hands and fight for justice where we
see injustice and fight for those whose voice goes unnoticed. We have to also fight for those countries that women are still subject to abuse and rape and ensure that they are respected worldwide.
