I Love Women

Respond to this Friday Faithfuls challenge by writing about how much you appreciate all the accomplishments that women have made to advance society, or you could discuss why you think women were held back for so long by men, or go with anything else that you think fits.  March 8th is International Women’s Day and this expanded to become National Women’s History Week and it eventually developed into Women’s History Month, so March is the time to thank all of the women for the contributions that they made which went unnoticed.  The number of men and women in the world is roughly equal, though men hold a slight lead with 102 men for 100 women (in 2020).  Women are the most valuable items on Earth, so we need to treat them well and care for them, and there is a good chance that they will return their love.  Human societies weren’t always male-dominated.  Patriarchy is a social system where men hold the power and that came into being approximately 10–12 thousand years ago with the advent of agriculture when man became farmers.  Women were daughters and then wives and under this system they didn’t question the role they were given and eventually this defined them.

Women still earn less money than men for doing the same jobs, and on the average full-time, year-round working women earned 84% of what their male counterparts earned, which doesn’t seem fair to me.  Discriminatory laws and social norms, which give preference to men in different fields, and this also reduces women to being treated as second class citizens.  In 86 countries, women face some form of job restriction and 95 countries do not guarantee equal pay for equal work.  Globally, women still have only three quarters of the legal rights that are afforded to men.  Equality between men and women will only exist when both sexes are able to share equally in the distribution of power and influence.  Women need to have equal opportunities for financial independence through work or through setting up businesses, so they can enjoy equal access to education and the opportunity to develop personal ambitions, interests and talents.  Men and women must share responsibility for the home and children so women can be completely free from coercion, intimidation and gender-based violence both at work and at home.

The US is trying to take rights away from women which were once protected by Roe vs Wade.  The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, abandoning decades of precedent and paving the way for states to ban abortion.  The Supreme Court determined that women do not have a Constitutional right to choose if they want to terminate their pregnancies.  Although women make up 50.8% of the U.S. population, only 19.4% of our national legislators are women.  The US Congress is composed mostly of men who are pro-life supporters, and they decided that the reproductive rights of millions of women should conform to their views.  These men have no idea what it is like to be a woman and they feel that an unborn fetus should have more rights than the mother who is carrying the baby.  These people are making laws which do not affect them or apply to them, so they stand on their moral high horse because they want women to be subordinate to them.

Many women are often overlooked and injustices against women are happening all over the world every day.  Many women are being withheld from receiving an education, they are forced into marriages that they don’t want, and they become victims of physical and/or sexual violence.  Women activists were once called lesbians and men dismissed their grievances thinking that they suffered from hormonal imbalance.  Women have come a long way, but there is still plenty left to do.  Many women still feel too ashamed to report rape, or domestic violence, so they suffer these atrocities in silence.  A lot has changed, but the longest revolution is not over yet, and we need to continue to fight for women’s rights till they are truly treated as equals.  Don’t forget to show respect and kindness to all women, so they can pursue their dreams and reach their potential.  You could always help out with the grocery shopping, pitch in on the cleaning, or cooking as there are so many things that men seem to take for granted.


  1. Reblogged this on A Unique Title For Me and commented:

    Man has been in control of this planet long enough and it is time to let the women run this place. All we ever did was mess it up and since women are much more caring and I am sure they will do a better job of running things. If women were in charge of the world the wealth would be spread around more equally and the eight wealthiest individuals in the world wouldn’t own as much as the poorest half of humanity. Empowering women would make things a whole lot better, as business would be more profitable, governments would be more representative, families would be stronger, and communities would become healthier. There would be less violence and more peace, stability and sustainability all around the globe.


  2. Reading this article made me feel grateful to you for shedding light on the important issue of women’s rights. It’s commendable that you recognize the contributions of women throughout history, and acknowledge the struggles they have faced to achieve equality.

    Women have been an integral part of society since the beginning of time, yet they have often been overlooked and undervalued. It’s true that women have faced many obstacles throughout history, from discrimination in the workplace to restrictions on their personal freedom. It’s appalling to think that in this day and age, women are still facing these same issues. The fact that women earn less than men for doing the same job is unacceptable and needs to be rectified immediately. It’s also disheartening to hear that women in many countries still face job restrictions and do not receive equal pay for equal work.

    I fully believe that true equality between men and women can only exist when both genders have an equal share in the distribution of power and influence. Women should have the same opportunities as men for financial independence, education, and personal growth. We need to dismantle societal norms that have held women back for far too long and promote gender equality in every aspect of life.

    I appreciate your efforts to highlight the fact that discrimination against women still exists today, and that there is still much work to be done to ensure that women are treated as equals. Your call to action for men to support women and share responsibility for household tasks is especially important. It’s time for men to step up and be allies to women, and your words serve as an inspiration for us all.

    It’s important to continue fighting for women’s rights and support them in any way possible. Every small gesture counts, whether it’s helping with household chores or standing up against discrimination and violence. We must show respect and kindness to all women so that they can pursue their dreams and reach their full potential. Together, we can create a world where women are truly treated as equals.

    Thank you for your insightful and thought-provoking article. 👍👏👌😊

    • I have to write about a different topic every Friday and this seemed like the easiest one to go with. I think you should be writing this, as you seem like a far superior writer than I am. Seriously, if you want to be a fill in writer for this challenge any time, that will happen.
