So, what comes to your mind when you hear the word equality. I am sure this word soothes your ears. But, is this word reality in today’s time. Me being a girl, my entrepreneurial journey is no different. Yes, I had a supportive family with my side as my strength. The family that allowed me to make and develop my opinions and act accordingly. But, what about this common antagonist in almost every “success” story called the society. The question I asked myself before starting the journey is, ” WHY SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT WHAT SOCIETY SAYS?”
Have you ever thought about why this society treats two humans differently?
“Moreover treating one gender as inferior to the other”!!
Women entrepreneurs not just have to face the problems of entrepreneurship but also of being a women entrepreneur. Society expects women to spend more time with their family members. They do not encourage women to travel extensively to get business opportunities. The salary of women is often less than men for the same job. Politics is also male-dominated like any other powerful field. We often hear the term ‘FEMINISM’ does it mean women’s priority over others or something different. Now, to tell my readers about this term, I will say that feminism means that female sex is considered equal to the male in every aspect of life. Feminism is the belief in full social, economic, and political equality for women. The time has arrived for everyone to be a feminist.
The traditionally conservative society wants to deter women of equal status in the garb of traditions, customs, ethics, etc. It’s time for the new generation to give logic priority. The time has come when people get treated the same. The focus of the society must be on the upbringing of a child, how he/she mustn’t differentiate based on sex. I believe that equality will bring peace and prosperity to the world. The ‘ERA OF EQUALITY’ must arrive in its real sense.
