Women working for women

None of us would be here if it weren’t for women.

Women are mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, friends, lovers – and aside from whatever role women play in your life, we are people. We deserve the utmost respect, the same that you would give to any man. In fact, many of us deserve more respect. (There, I said it.) So why is there still so much gender inequality in our world?

Even in the most advanced, healthy, educated, and peaceful societies on our planet, women are still not treated as equals to men. Fortunately, that day of equality is getting ever closer, but there is plenty of work to be done in the meantime and many obstacles ahead.

Largely because of our bodies and the historical connotation around our role in society, men and women alike feel a certain taboo when it comes to educating women, especially when it comes to our bodies. But we are more than our private parts, much more than our ability to reproduce. These are the lessons that every woman, lady, and girl should be taught but rarely is, as told by other women.
