To think it's still even a thing need discussing. But unfortunately it is.
Not so much for myself.. as I have a good life in a country where women has the same rights as men. Largely. Still things to work on. Such as women getting paid as much as men. But generally women in Sweden are as free in society as men.
However this ain't the case for majority of women in the world.
One of many ways to show a woman just how little worth she has is to deny her the right to education. Or as in many countries a woman can't even get healthcare without her husbands permission. And to top that a woman can't see a male doctor no matter what. So... If they won't allow women education then there are no women doctors and women die as a result. It's nothing but madness! Many men says the won't ever take their wife's to a male doctor even if it means she will die. "It's against our tradition". Can't you just feel how much they love their wife's?!
Other ways to keep women in "their place" by female genital mutilation.
"Female genital mutilation or cutting is the act of either partially or totally removing the external female genitalia or causing injury to the female genital organs for non-medical purposes"
Yes for NON-MEDICAL PURPOSE! It's just insane and over 130 MILLION young girls has been forced to go trough this abuse! in 29 countries in Africa and the Middle East.
I can't for the life of me see how ANY man in the world would want a woman that can't enjoy the most basic thing in life: sex. And nevermind sex... Sex brings pregnancy and after having their vaginas destroyed many actually die give birth. INSANE!
In addition to this madness MILLIONS of women aren't allowed to even breathe without a man's permission. They are "kindly" allowed to stay in their house. Cook, clean, take care of children and give her husband sex. That's pretty much it. She is not allowed to even speak without being spoken to. She can never complain or wish for more in life. If she does she is ungrateful and gets a beating.
Often the these women didn't even have a say in who they were married to. Like a women is nothing more then an animal.
I'm born a free woman. No man will EVER tell me what I can or can't do. If I want to leave my house I leave my house. Don't need permission. If I want to speak I speak. I decide EVERYTHING in MY life. NOT A MAN!
And this is how it should be. ALL OVER THE WORLD.
But until enough men see how women suffer.. Until enough men sees that women are the same as men... Until enough men are willing to let go of the comfortable life it brings to use women as slaves... Until then women all over the world will keep suffering at the hands of men.
Men don't want to change this because it's not a problem for men.
