Being a woman is not easy. I was asked on New Years Eve, why the focus of my blog was on women being the best versions of themselves and why were men not included? The exclusion was not on purpose, necessarily, but it is, without a doubt, that women need more of a focus because, this is in fact a [heterosexual] mans world.
Men make more money!
Men own more businesses!
Men dominate politics, the economy, the military, higher professions…everything that women, at some point in time, were not able to be a part of.
It was not until the 1920’s that the “19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote, is signed into law by Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby” (Women’s Rights Movement in the U.S. History of the American Women’s Rights Movement 1848–1920).
Just like every form of oppression, discrimination, prejudice, and segregation, there is almost no way to get total equality, because the foundation was not equal!
But, there is always room for rebuilding those that are told that they are inferior, so that they can be greater than their purpose or their role in society.
Women, regardless of their culture, background, race, religious beliefs or sexual orientation, know what it feels like to be a woman, in a mans world.
