International Women’s Day 2011

I’ve learned the Official Website of this year’s International Women’s Day from women-ish. The official theme of International Women’s Day 2011 is "Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women".

It’s sad that in a highly civilized generation such as we have, there are still parts of the world where discrimination against women is unbridled. I have heard of stories that in some extreme male chauvinistic cultures, giving birth to a woman is undesirable. It’s where young girls and women are treated violently just because they are women. Such should be condemned by society.

Perhaps, in the Philippines, the rights of women are well respected. Considering that there are women in positions of influence both in government service and business. In recent developments, there is a growing number of working women in families where husbands stay at home.

Still, women struggle with the concept that they should stay at home and care for the kids while men should be the ones working. Well, it’s a matter of role in the family. I believe, more than earning, a person works for personal fulfillment. As individuals, we all need fulfillment in life and that includes women who just happened to have become mothers. You don’t lose your individuality after giving birth to a child. Taking care of a child is not the sole responsibility of mothers; fathers share in that responsibility too.

I guess, the best way to settle this difference is a good and clear arrangement between two loving parents. Ever heard of CBA? Couples’ Bargaining Agreement! I do not intend to create a controversy in the role of men and women in the family, though. I just want to emphasize to the couples the value of giving each other a room for growth.
