Women’s empowerment is what most of us still demand. The statement “women hold half the sky” certainly points out the desire of having equal opportunities no matter the field. Half the sky also indicates the urge of having equal space; no more, no less. Here, especially in India, people treat women either as a goddess or as a homemaker. That’s where the problem lies, there is no middle ground.
Apart from that, women should be deployed outside their houses as well. There are so many instances of how great role models they can be. We all have been raised by one, and certainly, you can’t question how they excel in guiding and managing not only chores but lives as well. So it’s pretty high time talking about empowerment still in Gen Z draws attention to how insecure and how intolerant our society is. Being a woman should be your supreme achievement, and not the deepest fear because there are so many role models present in our society who outshine all and keep the bright light up in the sky.
