Feministic Face of International Women’s Day. Feminism and Feminists.
International Women’s Day is about celebrating amazing women: we may know them, may we be them, may we raise them. International Women’s Day is especially important in parts of the world where women are still forced to deal with shocking inequality daily. And we want to raise recognition of the challenges and fights faced by these women. International Women’s Day celebrates women’s history, highlighting key events, milestones, and achievements. It aims to promote further and raise awareness of women’s rights and to achieve parity status in all walks of life, from proclaiming women’s suffrage in the 1920s to focusing on manifestations of violence against women of the 21st century. It’s necessary to follow the law with legal, social, economic, civil, and political equality, to prevent all forms of violence and discrimination against girls and women.
Realizing Women’s rights not only on International Women’s Day
According to the United Nations, “The emerging global consensus is that despite some progress, real change has been agonizingly slow for the majority of women and girls in the world. Today, not a single country can claim to have achieved gender equality. Multiple obstacles remain unchanged in law and culture.”
UN starts a new campaign called “Generation Equality,” which marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most progressive road-map for the empowerment of women and girls everywhere.
Statistic facts about Feminism
- Women earn 23% less than men on average.
- Only 24% of parliamentarians are women.
- One in three women was subjected to physical or sexual abuse.
- Two hundred million girls have been subjected to genital mutilation.
- Some countries still do not have compulsory paid parental leave.
- The number of women heading the Fortune 500 has dropped by about 25 percent from last year.
Having more women in leadership positions will be a guarantee for equality. And equality is not a female issue; it is a socio-economic imperative.
Misconception about feminism.
Feminism means to hate man.
It’s about saying that all dog owners hate cats. That myth of hate came only because of the statistic criminal facts. For example, 90% of rapists are men, and men also commit most of the murders and robberies. People think only feminists who hate men can mention these statistics. However, talking about a problem does not mean hating someone.
Feminists forbid women to use makeup, wear high heels or dresses.
Feminists say that makeup and uncomfortable clothes are part of a system in which a woman’s mission is to delight a man with her appearance. But what feminists sharply speak out against are workplace dress codes that prescribe heels and makeup.
Mostly feministic manifests are provocative and shocking.
Provocative actions have always been used by politicians and stars to attract attention. But for some reason, feminists are denied the right to use this PR tool. Feminists, conduct very few provocative actions and remain within the framework of standard methods: rallies, pickets, lectures, flash mobs, creation of information resources, and mutual support community. And we all know that it’s one of the best ways to point attention to the problem for further discussion.
Feminism is a matriarchy.
Do not confuse feminism and matriarchy. Feminism is a movement for women’s rights against gender discrimination. It means that women should not have less political, economic, and civil rights only because they are women. The essence of feminism reflected in the famous quote Mary Shear: “Feminism is a radical opinion that a women are people”.
What equality can we talk about if women and men are biologically different?
There are, of course, biological differences between females and males. But it does not mean that men and women should have different rights and freedoms; the same is true with varying colors of skin. Physical abilities do not make one of the sexes better and also do not automatically give their owners more privileges. Besides, the biological sex and its social perception( gender) do not always coincide.
Not all women are feminists.
Of course, not all women are feminists. Feminism is not about imposing anything. The goal is to allow women to choose a life outline and the ability for self-realization. Moreover, it is quite possible to be a wife, mother, and feminist at the same time. But it has to be a personal and conscious choice of a woman.
In conclusion, it evident that women contributed so much to our culture, lifestyle and pushed us all to be our better selves. If it weren’t for women, men would have a 190-inch TV and sit on rocks with pizza boxes strewn around the cave. International Women’s Day is a day we celebrate, but every day we ought to thank all women in our lives and work hard to create parity in their lives. Final thought, we may know them, may we be them, may we raise them!!
