I want to share my view on women empowerment movement that is happening all around the world now.Men have always had the power. It’s deeply rooted in our collective mind that men rule the world, they make the rules everybody else has to follow. When a boy was borne it was considered to be a fortune when a girl was born it was a misfortune. My own father wanted me to be a boy?. Men had the power but they didn’t have the love too and power without love is reckless and abusive.
Women, on the other hand, have been taught to love, to forgive, to obey… But also that they are weak, powerless and helpless. They had been slaves for many years, diminished, humiliated by any organized structure like family, church, society in general.
What is happening now is that women are taking their power back and a lot of men feel threatened and insecure as a result of that. They feel under attack. You know what they say, the best defence is a good offence?
My message to women is this: it’s absolutely safe to take our power back, but let’s keep the love while doing it or even better, multiply it.
My message for men is this: make peace with the fact that women are taking their power back, it’s happening already, but also learn that power and love can go together. And men are capable of tremendous unconditional love too.
