... an Action of Women and Men, Not Hating Men as Enemy
Feminism is “the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes”. It creates and promotes a society of equality. Nobody is limited by their gender. Women have equal opportunity for leadership roles, education, participation in workforce and so forth like men. Therefore, ‘feminism is not a battle between men and women; it is a battle between feminists and the patriarchy’. It never teaches to hate men. Sometimes, we see that ‘man-hating feminists are a common caricature in popular culture. There are numerous examples of women ‘acting out’ in the goal of turning the world upside down so that women rule and men obey. None of this reflects the reality of feminism and its goals’. ‘Women push back passionately for the fight for fairness and a change in society’s feminine views. Feminists are now targeting not legal injustice, not unfair stigmas, but men’.
We see that many times, feminists and their movement are targeting men as enemy for any violence against women. They usually declare their action against men. Sometimes, they think that organization for protection of women and promotion of equity would be the absolutely path.
Females deserve equal rights as men in this world because ‘each sex has something unique and the special of their own nature to bring to society. Those strengths make each gender equal in power’. It means that there is a need of shared understanding between both genders in this fight. But we see, that women become ‘blinded by anger by the actions of men regarding things like sexual assault, sexism and discrimination in society’. As a result, the fault of inequality has been turned to the opposite sex when, in fact, not all men are at fault and deserve blame’.
The feminist fight is against violence, abuse, political opportunity or any other form of inequality. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said that “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” The strong feminist refers to the past history of women’s torture, gender discrimination and gender harassment in society. ‘However, if we continually look back at the mistakes of others, bitterness will always remain. But even looking back, not all past events show men as the enemy of women’. It is true fact that we cannot bring a bright and promising future, if we remain in the past. ‘Anger, pain and hate will constantly remain and nothing will change. The past is there for us to learn from. The future is ours to change for the better’. It is obvious ‘if one sex continually tries to dominate the other, equality and understanding will never be reached. It will constantly be a war of superiority’. ‘However, a superior sex does not exist. Each is unique in their own way and has something to give to our society’. ‘Fighting against allies to get to the top is the bully’s way to success and the bully, in the end, never wins and is never praised’. ‘The fight for equality is just that: equal. One cannot succeed without the other. Both must fight, side by side, against traditions of gender inequality if we are to gain a bright and promising future’.
