RE: It is Women's Day

in Steem For Ladies4 months ago

It's heart breaking to describe the women's rights violation in our society which comes from men as well as some women (who didn't get proper education).

I remember this drama and how much tears it made me shed. The irony was his brother who killed her but found it appropriate to eat her earned money. Where was his Gairat/Honour that time?

You know what, we say women's education is important, cool, but men's education should also be the utmost priority. Have you seen that Halwa incident in Lahore market, a new Islamic drama of those mullahs, Wallah they were illiterate (didn't know Arabic to know its meaning), but had the audacity to preach around.

Niri Jahalat, it makes me sick, and I wonder how low would they go, and they surprise each day:)

This honor culture is not a part of Islam, instead we have inherited it from India, or i believe it's common in third world countries where economy is collapsing so our men project their frustration on fragile creatures (physically), women.

changing surnames after marriage

Well, this is funny too, a fantasy of our women to change it, i think often what about those women who marry multiple times, how hectic it would be for them to change their surnames every time.

Yaar, keep your father's name intact, instead. No headaches:)

Lastly, i want our women to be strong enough to say what is wrong infront of our men(our brothers, husbands, and fathers). It's high time to come out of that shyness to stop men to do bad to other women.

Respect is for everyone, it should also be for those women who dress differently, act differently, and live on their own, they are not sluts but just a human being:)

You are right. Like I said boys need to be taught from early age at home. Our kids learn what they see at home, not what they are taught in books. If my husband treats me well, it's more likley that my boys will respect their wives too in future.

In this post, I highlighted more on women's basic right to get any level of education they desire. They shouldn't be shunned away to stay at home after matriculation just because - روٹیاں ہی پکانی ہیں
Because what if her "rich" husband turns out to be cruel, gets bed-ridden or dies... what she'll do then? The same parents won't take her back. She won't have any skills to monetize. Our society doesn't treat divorcees and widows any better.

It's better to always have a plan B and C, no matter how good or rich your husband is.

Have you seen that Halwa incident in Lahore market,

Yes... we are the nation who would also kiss the word بیت الخلا because it's Arabic. I'm not just saying it.. it's a true story. 😅

we have inherited it from India,

Not the current India. These ridiculous cultural traditions date back to the Mughal Era. The whole South Asia suffers now.

I didn't find any reference where it is prohibited to take after husband's name either. So, I think it's upto an individual's choice however they wish because it's thought to make things easier in legal documents and stuff. Although, I chose to keep my father's name and I've never had any kind of difficulties so far.

As a nation we make short term plans for a few years or a decade, like our politicians. Our vision is restricted, in this modern age every woman must have any skill she finds compelling to become self sufficient atleast:)

In a lot of cases, men respect their wives who earn and not depend entirely on them. Otherwise they think they have a right to treat her bad because he provides her.

That's the point and i actually appreciate you for that👏

Recently, i watched a video of Bangladesh where men were so habitual to urinate on the walls, after clearly reading it prohibited in their language.

So the govt played a trick and wrote it in Arabic, not only did they stop doing it, but also started kissing the walls😂
