She was…she is

She’s a toddler;

She was fully clad and a medical science student;

An independent woman.

Hailing from a village:

A homemaker;

A farmer’s wife;

She walked straight to her home;

She hummed a song;

She was raped, sexually assaulted and ignored the leered glances;

Lewd comments:

Of course!

She asked for it:

For how long, you will stand as a mute spectator!

Blame her for everything!

You spineless coward!

She is the one who should take care of the kitchen,

keep in-laws happy,

and be ready for sex at your will;

She is a good and dutiful wife;

In your books!

Show me who wrote this crap!

And, you worship her form in temples!

All you want is sacrifice!

Right!

Your stupid mentality!

Screw your rules of ‘good wives don’t kiss and tell’,

blame husband no matter how good and bad;

Keep walking!

For you chose to let her walk alone!

A long marriage for you is success!

Divorced or single woman is an open treasure trove;

Pity your intellect and empty brains;

Keep tweeting and sharing;

Happy Women’s Day!

Love

V

    • Thanks Soumya. We live in such sad state and we should be ashamed of our herd mentality where we create two class of citizens and give a kind of ascribed status based on gender.

      • We should never stop believing despite being up against one army stuck in ideology of the stone age. Even if we can make small change with one person changing the mindset, we can nurture the belief of making the leap:)
