Reality Check: There Is No Glory In Being a Coward
A woman who doesn’t speak up for her rights is a coward. If a woman tolerates any sort of abuse she is not only responsible for what she gets, she is also responsible for the ill fate that might befall upon her daughter because she was a coward.
Violence against women is too common across the world. It is so common that hundreds and thousands of non profit and non governmental organisations are working and fighting for women’s right. Pardon if I may seem too blunt but I think that these organisations shouldn’t exist. No education or awareness can make women realize that what is their worth. They may be physically weaker than a man but they are nothing less than him in social stature.
If women doesn’t realize that they do not deserve to beaten. They do not deserve to be called a weaker gender and that their children especially their daughter doesn’t deserve to face the same fate than these organisation shouldn’t exist to make them realize that.
In Pakistan, most of the women grow up thinking that they have this moral obligation to bow in front of their ‘Majazi Khuda (False God) that most of them often forget that they are human too. They are not doormats they deserve same respect. They live their life in abusive relations only to prove a point to God knows whom. They think that if they stay married to an abusive man till the day they died they have lived a glorious life and people will remember them in good words. Or if they bow their head to whatever their father and brother say without thinking they will prove themselves as a good daughters and sisters. Then sorry to break your bubble, it wont happen. This quench for a good reputation compels them to live like a savage and die like an unappreciated being.
Women really like to blame men for whatever bad happens to them. It’s always your father, or your husband or brother that it’s not your father or husband, its your mother and your fault that you are subjected to domestic or psychological abuse. There is no glory in living your like a slave and then expecting that you will be appreciated for the ‘So-called’ efforts. Always remember you will never be a hero for being a coward!
A woman who doesn’t speak up for her rights is a coward and deserve every bit of circumstances that comes her way. If a woman tolerates any sort of abuse from her father, brother or husband she is not only responsible for what she gets, she is also responsible for the ill fate that might befall upon her daughter because she was a coward.
The fear of society has ruined many lives, you can change that. You do not have to tolerate abusive behavior in any form. Stop thinking you are doing any favor to your children by not speaking up. The least that will happen is that you will get out of that abusive relationship. But this will be an end to a life of misery that you are passing on to the next generation.
There is no glory in living your like a slave and then expecting that you will be appreciated for the ‘So-called’ efforts.
May be if you speak up you make your husband, brother or father realize that you are not afraid any more and that they can not treat you like dirt. A woman is responsible for nurturing another generation. You don’t want to create a hostile or slave at mind generation. You deserve better. You deserve respect.
