I do not think women were forced to eat less or leftovers. After 300,000 years, in the 21st century, women are secluded in many parts of the world only because they …

Today I want to apologize to my mother for saying all those years when she was alive that ‘she does not work, she is a housewife’. She was given in marriage when she was a 10-year-old child. Since then she woke up at dawn, worked all day to make breakfast for everyone, and then lunch …

If men could breastfeed and women could not, it would be alright not to breastfeed or to breastfeed in public or in uniform

terrenphoto

If men could breastfeed and women could not, it would be alright not to breastfeed. Nobody would hate non-breastfeeding men. Nobody would say, ‘they are bad fathers, they choose not to breastfeed.’ Nobody would say, ‘they do not breastfeed, because they worry more for the shape of their breasts than the health of their babies. …

Men hate woman’s body

Men hate woman’s body. Women learn from men to hate their own bodies. Men and media have been busy for centuries advising women what they should look like. Men hate women’s hair if they are not silky and long. Most women keep their hair long even though many of them feel comfortable having short hair. …
