I wrote this for a speech I have to give in college, let me how is it or suggest corrections.
Thank you. – Vantsy105
Whose gender is determined by one ‘independent’ chromosome.
Whose favorite color is determined to be pink and her favorite doll to be Barbie even before she is born.
Who when was a little girl, never noticed any difference between a boy and a girl to be friends with.
Who grows with a planted notion that every boy is tougher than her.
Who then realizes that she is not being treated the same in every matter.
Who then learns that she has to bear a pain that the opposite gender will ever know or understand and that the world is completely divided into two, one being the man and the other being the women.
Everyday around the globe she is being separated and kept out from conversations, insulted by people referring and naming characteristics and things as ” feminine stuff”.
Every day she walks with the fear of getting her space invaded, being on full alert mode every minute and every second of her life.
Whatever she goes through she keeps to herself.
She is expected to get a degree not to start her own business, not be the Ceo or the next big scientist or the next president but just to put it next to her name in her marriage invitations.
She creates a miracle, a life inside, nurturing it for 9 months and goes through the excruciating pain of every bone breaking in her body.
She is expected to stay home and look after her family without having expectations for herself.
She gives out as much love as she possibly can to those around her.
She is fierce when it comes to the protection of her loved ones.
A beauty that many fails to notice .
She is a daughter, a sister, and a most importantly a mother for every being in this planet.
She is basically a strong and an amazing being.
Some fails to understand and underestimates their own strength, but those who do realize changes the world for good.
We see them and we hear about them in our everyday life, as an example and an inspiration, such as
Taylor swift who taught me to shake it off and that haters are always gonna hate,
Malala who showed me that even when you’re hurt too bad, you can stand up with you’re head held high to fight even more,
Mother Teresa, who made me realize that there is always more love to give,
J.K Rowling who told me to let my imagination run wild and that its okay to fail. Even when she was broke, alone with a child, she continued the one thing she loved to do, which as we all know made history.
And most importantly we see it everyday in our mother.
Let me just finish this by giving my advice,
Strength comes from with in and you are capable of that strength.
You can change the world.
Anything is possible, if you think it is possible.
Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise.
So, here’s to strong women,
May we know them,
May we be them,
May we raise them.
