To look at the world with open eyes.
I was never interesting about feminism. At school I am studiing^ at first WOMEN were leaders and it was named MATRIARCHY. Then MEN became leaders and it was PATRIARCHY.
Then I learn about poor people fighting against reach people – maybe, it was correct. I read about people of my country fighting against foreign armies – YES, IT WAS CORRECT!!! And everybody fighting for independence I understand.
I study about women seeking rights – sure it was correct!
My mother had a work as all women of my country. My mother can elect and can be elected as any adult women in my country. My mother received hie education free of charge and work for 40 yaers without any gender discrimination. She was married and was divorced due her wishes. She bore a girl and had no problems, she bore a boy and had no problems. She could make abort but she decided have children – her personal decision, no problems.
I live in the same country and have the same rights. I have a family and three beautiful kids. I have hie education and work. Need I to be feminist? NO! NO! NO!
Some of belorussian women are feminists. They cry about “how little the percent of women in parlament” and never say about how little percent of belorussian feminists try to be elected to parlament – a few women only. But they have GRANTS, and that is the main goal of belorussian feminism, I think. I was at three seminars and never hear about real action. Words, words, words. Need I to be feminist? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
One day accidentally I so information about MyStory at our site www.dzietki.org. I came and saw the PULSWIRE.
The first article I read was a poem about burning bride in India. I found information about femicide in India and other terrible traditions… At that moment I understood: there are a lot of countries need feminism.
My heart and my eyes are open.
I proud to know women ready to change world around them. I have only my heart and my voice to help you, THE BEST WOMEN IN THE WORLD. What can I do for you& tell me, and I will try.
