Woman’s Day

For one whole day the guy at the corner won’t eye her while she is going to the college. The one at the bike won’t pass vulgar comments on the girl standing at the bus stop. Today her parents won’t worry even if she comes late from work. They won’t be afraid to send her to school in the next village. The 7 year old’s cloth won’t prove to be provaking. The neighbours won’t judge her because she has male friends. She’ll have access to sanitary health. She’ll not be considered impure when she is on her periods. Today she and her brother will get equal freedom. She won’t have to sacrifice her career and job just to get married. Bearing kids will not be her ultimate goal. For just one whole day it’ll be a perfect world for her.

Because it’s WOMEN’S DAY, right?
