The Role of Women in Our Modern Society
A girl becomes a woman, a woman becomes a wife, a woman becomes a mother, a woman becomes a grandmother, a woman becomes a relative.
So, woman are still equals to men because without them they can not reproduce.
Women are equal to men that is one of the basics of human rights. What does this mean? Was there a time when men and women were not equal and what is it to be a woman. Women are viewed as girls, mothers, wives, grandmothers, relatives and friends.
When a girl is born her room is often painted in pink and her cloths are the same colour. Pink is the light colour of red, the color of blood. This is because women have to reproduce and make children. Red has been a controversial colour during the Communist era because it was the emblem. Women are mothers. They bear there babies in their womb for no more than nine months. A woman can have multiple births and they get help from the Government when it happens to them.
Wives become wives by going to the Mayor and or Church to have their wedding registered. The wives have many things to do in order to have a descent wedding. This means that most of the time they have to inform to others about their wedding, receive gifts and say thank you in return. A wedding list is difficult to make. That is why there is now wedding consultants. They often work in malls. In case of weddings, there is often the question of bread winner. In most societies the man and the woman don’t work and this is hard to understand because unless you are a well known lawyer how can your wife stay at home.
Some economists have thought about this. There are some economist which are against divorce, others that favour divorce and others that favor no marriage. Grandmothers are the guardian of traditions and often they keep the grandchildren while their parents are away. A woman is also a relative and a friend and this is the hardest part. As a relative a woman is judged by how she behaves and gives advice. And as a friend a woman is a confident who is ready to alleviate sufferings by showing her love. The Beijing Summit organized by the United Nations is an example on how women have attracted the attention of the world on their situation. The famous representations of women who have are the Little Mermaid, Empress Elizabeth of Austria and Germany (“Sissi”) and Liz Taylor for example.
