Happy women’s day 2013

Being a woman is a wonderful thing. It is challenging and mostly feels as if someone is telling a bad story from the end to the beginning. Yesterday I was in a debate of what feminism is and whether some women are feminist even if they don’t know it yet. It just downed on me that it will be a long time before we talk about women’s issues without the association they evoke to feminism. Feminism has outlived its purpose and I think it is time to move on.

Today more than ever the inequality between men and women is hidden in so many spheres of life that just talking about jobs, income and glass ceiling is not enough. There is an opportunity for women to include themselves in much more than the outcomes of policies, technologies and debates. Women should be involved  in the process, in the trial and error and often discouraging processes of day-to-day lives that has positive results.  Women see things differently and if they brought these differences to develop their communities,  probably so much would be achieved with less. Women and men need to have opportunities to change their communities and bring policy reforms in their communities but as it is there is still a big gap. Empowering women and including them in policy making is a good start.

To all the women - Happy women's day. Your achievements and struggles are appreciated.
