to give things correct names
I am from Belarus, Eastern part of Europe. 20 years ago my motherland was a part of Soviet Union.
For the first look, women of our country have no gender problems. Girls are going to school and univercity, women are working on a par with men. They have the same rights, for example, they are electors from the same age, they can be elected on any lever of power. Many womens are commanded men.
But! Only for the first look.
Because if we have human rights only on paper - there are no real rights both for women and men. Our women thought all time about how to feed family? how to wear family? how to treat? how to study? how to..?
Our men try to get money... And neither men nor women never think about the way to change something.
Conversely, they teach their kids to adapt to sistem, to society: silent, lie, be like everyone else, hate, do not resent the loud, flatter, to substitute another, to steal, bum. Parents think, they are help their children. And they are surprised, when kids grown up and became, maybe, sucsessful in carier, but they are angry, unhappy, agressive, unsure, kindless, indifferent...
Mothers! We must have own opinion. We must let our children to have own opinion. Not only to have, but to defend. We must give our men chance to be MEN. It is time to remember, what is good and what is bad, and to give things correct names. Nobody exept us can do it. The way is beginning with one little step...
