I remember being shocked reading how long it took Switzerland to give women the vote in my “emancipations” history class at university. I then ended up au pairing there a couple years later and experiencing that inequality for women first hand in watching how my host Mom was looked down upon in the village, where she lived, for working. But then that’s nowhere near as bad as the various religious restrictions some women face around the world (not just Islamic law).
But I also see is the huge strides that have been made. Incidentally women in NZ were the first in the world to be given the vote. These were women of faith who went to the streets protesting that they had to watch their husbands come home drunk because of the closing times of pubs. They thought the country would do well to listen to their opinion also.
Not so sure about the current PM in my home country now though …waiting for her to lift the 2 week quarantaine, so we can finally visit family 😭.
As always: your poem has got me thinking.
Anna, may I ask where you are currently located?
Regarding your comment, I agree that great strides have been made in many places throughout the world, but even in those places there is room for improvement (as I think you’d agree), and the contrast between those places and those that are very regressive has become increasingly glaring!
I live in the Netherlands (my husband comes from Corrie ten Boom’s home town 😉). Yes: that’s so true about the glaring contrast. I’ve watched some pretty horrific documentaries on those fighting for basic women’s rights. But I am also hearing stories of the light shining brighter in those places than ever before.
Touché! Bravo David! You always have the right words.
In this case, they were self-evident to me, Filipa.
I wish (almost) everybody could think like you David. Unfortunately, it’s not an evidence fir all.
Men wear white in the desert heat, women wear black. Could misogyny be more black and white?
I hadn’t even thought of that!
I bet whoever came up with those costumes did!
Ah this is good!I agree, the society does become somewhat pigheaded when it comes to gender equality, with all due respect.

Это очень хорошее стихотворение! (но технически четвертая строка должна состоять из четырех слов)
Ну, я только начинающий поэт.
Это не было критикой. Я только пытался помочь.
Я и не воспринимаю это как критику. Критика – моё стихотворение.

Deep. We should make that an anthem for the world.
good luck to us with that.
That’s powerful. For one voice to be heard, it takes a whole village.
The female gender is believed to be an object of oppression. Though many have advocated otherwise. Women need to rise and stand together. There’s so much power there.
And yet. 😦
Yes! Well said. Thank you David.

When a society denies women basic human decency they communicate that she is a not human and undeserving of human rights
yes, that seems so simple to me…
