My short rant

Some say that women have full equality, and are just “playing the gender card”. But women are not equal
n  While many more baby girls are killed by selective abortion and infanticide
n  While women can’t go out alone at night for fear of sexual assault
n  While the physical signs of aging are not treated with the same social respect in women as they are in men
n  While many kinds of religious leaders regard women as spiritually inferior
n  While a woman’s protests against injustice are dismissed as ‘emotionalism’ or ‘that time of the month’
n  While a woman’s experience in raising children is treated negatively in the workforce
n  While many parts of the world do not think that women need much education
A just society starts with each individual choosing to live justly and oppose injustice
