One of my closest friend in school brought up this topic once. We were just seated in our bus after school, and were waiting for everyone else to come.
“Nishtha,” she said, “you know what, I am ashamed to admit it, however it’s true a woman is another woman’s biggest enemy.”
Years later, her words are making me reflect deeply these days.
We talk about gender inequality, equal rights for women at home, sharing of responsibilities at home, etc., and yes men do need to wake and shake themselves up, however a lot of women don’t feel they deserve the good that men are entitled to.
So, if you are someone (man or a woman) who believes in equality, start with not saying these five things to any woman you respect or would want to be respected.
It’ll make the world better for your daughters and sisters.
