Or, should I say, on being a woman? I don't know what makes that difference. Is it age? Or is it preferring men over dinner to chocolate doughnuts?
This is not about that discussion, however.
Girl or woman, things are not fair, my lady!I have always thought there is a fair amount of unfairness against women. How, in school, the boy was the School Pupil Leader and the girl, the Assistant School Pupil Leader.How, it is perfectly sensible for a woman to swallow her education and marry appropriately. How, if a woman is molested, it is her fault to have dressed inappropriately.How, a burkha is the perfect answer to male lust. How a rape victim gets justice in the form of a mere four year imprisonment.
I am sure every single woman in this world would have had an experience with sexual harassment. Be it with the roadside romeo who makes you walk faster on a perfectly public road. Or the marauding man in the office whom you initially bear with, and later, who makes your gut wrench. Or the shady soprano in the lift, who thinks he has an edge just because you are alone with him. Or the lewd leerer in the public bus who just can't keep his hands to himself.Do any of us fight back? Most of us, bear with it. Even if we try to claw back, it is not even a scratch on the surface. This is not even a question of liberty. This is a question of injustice. What and where lie the answers?
