Women’s Liberation #1

So, I was born Roman Catholic.
And as you guessed, my life was fantastic.
Besides, I lived in Bombay city.
Just like the four generations before me.
My ancestors were always blamed for ruining Indian culture.
English, weird meats, cake and wine, dressing supposedly vulgar.

I was born in a open minded home,
with not many restrictions on where to roam.
Or whom I could befriend. 
I openly introduced all of my boyfriends.
Well true, there were just another two.
But, you get the idea, don't you?

I was born with freedom of speech.
Never made to implore or beseech.
I enjoyed the same rights.
Of my elder brother who sat beside.
We were given equal opportunities. 
I'm grateful I was born in such a community.

All throughout my life I wore,
trendy clothes that never bore.
Skirts, dresses and even hot pants,
probably the size of tiny little ants.
It's not just about speech and clothes. 
It's about respect and freedom, that many oppose.

I was never repressed.
I was never oppressed.
I was never suppressed. 
Only after travelling a lot,
I realized most women are dealt a poor shot.

My freedom, my life was highly coveted.
That's what I've always regretted.
I don't know if I'll ever be able to do.
Anything for some woman, even just a few.
But, I wish someday women are given the respect,
without being viewed as mere sexual objects.
Stupid, inferior beings or just maids and cooks,
only capable, a child to take care of and look.

This poem is not intended to hurt the sentiments of any person/community/group. I am not a feminist, at least not in the way it has shaped up today. I don’t go around demanding equal pay for certain jobs where men bring in more revenue or insist on period leave. I don’t claim women are superior to men or more believable than men. We are not equal physically/emotionally. We have our sets of weaknesses and strengths and are unique in our own way. But, I feel very strongly about issues such as women’s liberation, respect, rights, education, female infanticide (fortunately sex determination is illegal and a severely punishable offence since many decades), sati (fortunately already abolished by the British), rape, consent etc. I intend to write many more poems pertaining to these issues. This is the first one in the series. I hope you enjoy reading them and I sincerely pray it brings light to pending issues.

    1. Yes care and protect and stronger and all that is great and perfect …..as long as women have control of their own thoughts,speech and choices….as long as they get the respect and dignity that another human being deserves. ….I’m sure a good woman will go out of her way to nurture and nourish. I’m not against feminine qualities being associated with women….that’s a strength. I’m against the control and disrespect men exercise superior authority and rule over submissive/repressed women.

  3. I believe that the day men learn to value, to love themselves and begin to feel adequate, they will no longer feel need to oppress, supress, and control women in order to create an illusion of superiority for themselves.
    When they love themselves, they can love women, instead of targeting them.

    One who feels inferior themselves puts others down. When they put others down, they feel falsely elevated.
    Men who do not know God will continue to feel insecure and often feel hatred toward women due to misplaced anger, frustration, and feelings of insecurity. However, they don’t seem to understand this.

    1. Absolutely …..you nailed it sister! You echoed my sentiments. I feel men who indulge in such tactics are insecure themselves and just project their own limitations and shortcomings and failures and frustrations and inadequacies over women so they feel superior in comparison to the one they are oppressing and exercising control upon. They control what they can…especially if they are unwilling to change/identify/accept their own failures/traits and fix them….they find an easier route….It’s a vain attempt at creating a false sense of esteem and power and control over their own world..which still requires adjustment but their refusal to accept/see it blinds them to the real problem which is their own insecurity and shortcomings! A confident and strong man does not need to squash on or step on a woman to feel adequate!

      1. Precisely! Amen. So many men have these unaddressed issues! It is a global plague among many. I’m glad some of us can see through such garbage. How miserable for them. I pray for the day when more men will address and help other men with this stuff.

        In the meantime and always, women and girls should continue to keep their standards high, know their worth, encourage each other, get and apply knowledge.
        Let’s keep God first and follow His guidance. πŸ™πŸΎ
