One thing that everyone should know is that the women did not just come to earth with the job description of being a mom or a housemaid. She was, or never should be restricted to the premises of her home where she could just look after the kids or do a common household chore. Women can be equally or if not more creative and scientifically more intellect than men in some walks of life.The fact that female empowerment is important is because:-
A woman who can support the needs of her family - financially, socially and emotionally is a role model for her children. It proves to them that gender bias is a notion that is created by society and doesn’t mean anything as long as a woman is strong, confident and sure of herself. The children learn from what they see. If kids see that their mothers are financially independent, they will also understand the value of money and be inspired to be self-sufficient in life when they grow up. This clearly is an example of “Lead by Example” rather than comparing to other’s kids - which is a common notion seen in our country.
The greatest fear that anyone can bear upon themselves is the fear of being cast out- left alone to withstand life dead on. It is something that no individual should go through. Since women were thought to be inferior to men by archaic mindsets, they had had to face hardships. Women- if she has the will can always be self-sufficient without being dependent on others. Therefore, it is extremely important that every woman becomes financially independent so that they never have to feel helpless in life. It also gives them a positive view of life and helps them move forward.
Marie Curie- the Chemist who baffled the scientific community, the late Katherine Johnson whose mathematical prowess earned her a permanent hall of fame in NASA, Mother Teresa- who preached the notions of love and care to all corners of the world are but a few of the gems who have proved the world that even women can make a difference in a world that is being male chauvinistic/ Androcentric. The true beauty of this is that everyone is a hero. All we have to do is realize the potential that we have in us and strive forward. If these individuals can come out of their nutshell, then so can the women in our society. Each of the women is special in their own ways. All you need is the push and the encouragement to be the best version of yourself.
