I am no expert on feministic theories that have progressed over the years and I do not make this declaration to avoid the tag of ‘feminazi’

That is a topic in itself.

I speak of the irony. In this largely patriarchal setup, those who have had to speak for the rights of women have often had to address their men who are in the possession of these rights so that they can cede with them willingly.

I speak of the irony. That women who can afford to have their voices heard themselves differ on how a woman ought to command her just status. On capitalistic developed economies, these women cannot be blamed if they neglect class struggle in relation to women. Women in poor developing societies are not aggressive about the high end demands made for diminishing the pay difference or equal representation of women in offices, committies or influential lobbying for the same.

I speak of the irony where we are at crossroads with one another and branded ‘fickle’.

And often we have to ask our men to respect women rather than asking our women to strive to command it. Because we are aware that a women’s revolution can not be instigated and there may not be a dominoe effect to events.

A long way to go still.
