Inequality came to live with us and will never leave. All these women organisation struggling for equality should just fight for cooperation and understanding instead.We all can’t be equal.There is a phrase in Animal Farm by George Orwell, ” All animals are equal but some are more equal than others”. This is a true description of what is happening around us.
The world is full of crafty persons who think they are better than others and will always be. You can see it even in schools and universities. Students from urban and rural schools are far different. Not forgetting the superiroty Makerere University students think they have over occupants of other institutions. Inequality is everywhere……
Therefore, instead of using propaganda to judge “a brother”, we should accept him and improve his thinking. Many women are failing to settle down because they have been told they can be like men.My sister, you can’t be like a man because you don’t know what it takes to have many beautiful flowers in your garden but have to choose and keep only one. Thus, you can’t be like a man but you can be better than him. In such a way you shall get him to realize we are not just women but great people he needs around him. I must say things have improved.You now don’t have to put on a trouser to prove a point. Remember, in Genesis 3:20-22 “so the man named all the birds and all the animals; but not one of them was a suitable companion to help him. Then the Lord God made the man fall into a deep sleep, and while he was sleeping, he took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the flesh, He formed a woman out of the rib and brought her to him”. What am i saying, woman, you are his companion but not his competition. Genesis 3:24- “That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united with his wife, and they become one” .
Am tired of hearing ladies say, men don’t know the burden of carrying a child for 9 months and bringing them into this cruel world. How about you remember that he contributed a whole lot. If we are going to take our inequality to this level then we ain’t helping but destroying.
When a person hears the word gender inequality, the first thing that clocks in their mind is “women”. Society has ignored the men. It’s obvious that its the women who are affected in most cases. But let us not make it a battle of trophies.
