I am the one who can get my car door opened for me. I get more attention than the man when we go out together. I get pampered and treated like " an egg that can easily break" sometimes" I know there are female car mechanics, female plumbers, female trailer divers, female coal and gold miners, female carpenters and all.
However, the percentage is very minute compared to the man who has to most times do all the heavy, cumbersome, sometimes dirty and stressful jobs.
Today, I remembered Malala Yousufzai and said a short prayer for her. She should not suffer this much for believing in girl-child- Education and speaking out.
I pray for my country Nigeria, that many more women go into politics, and that we have a Female President soon.
Today I pray for women in different parts of the world who have experienced or are going through one domestic violence or the other, and I say "NO" to Domestic Violence. I pray for families and countries that do not value the girl child, may they realize that without a woman, there can never be a man.
I like that I am a woman and have never regretted being born this way. Why should I? when there is epidural to take away labor pains *wink*
OK, How come we tend to celebrate Valentine's Day more than we celebrate International Women's Day? I bet some women nearly forgot this day.
Happy women's Day!!!
