IT’S a tough world for a woman. A man’s world offers no refuge especially to a woman unwilling to quit and become yet another secretary, PA or just a wife to a man. Many women set out to become self-made achievers without men holding their hand. Sadly, many women return home defeated.
They have tears and agony in this harsh world of men. It takes a strong woman to challenge rules drawn out by men. It takes a very strong woman to stand up and declare that the time of men and their rule is over. But it takes an exceptional woman to do all these and come out victorious.
Why do some many women fail in the world of business, politics and leadership? Can a woman really be a nurturer and leader? Well, the answer is, a woman is already a leader. Her role has been well defined from the beginning. But it’s the cruelty of this world that shields her powers.
There are many questions I ask myself. Why should the richest and powerful people be men? The richest person is a man. His wife might have something to do with that wealth but facts state that it’s the man not woman.
The one woman who sought to become the most powerful person by being the president of United States of America failed in her pursuit. There are many great things to be achieved but somehow it appears that men always get them first.
This is a man’s world but brave women have set out to challenge this. Why indeed should men have all the fun, all the success while women just sit and wait for them to return home?
It seems when a woman sets out to become a millionaire, many laugh. Many assume she is doomed to fail. But perhaps what we don’t see is that many women hardly succeed because all opportunities are given to men.
The best business deals will pass to already successful men before the leftovers are tossed to ambitious women. It’s very difficult to succeed when so little support is given to one.
Even women trust men in business and politics more than other women. Women still vote for men over women. Women still choose male CEOS and not female ones. It will take a very long time for powerful women to be accepted in our world.
I have seen many powerful women labelled and broken down. The worst part is that some of these terrible deeds are done by their spouses.
There are many men who feel so frightened by powerful wives that they would go on cheating on them just to pull them down. It’s a terrible fate indeed that seems to await powerful women.
When a woman sets out to build her empire, as more women are doing these days. One thing that should always be in her mind is that she will receive more pull downs than support.
Many times she will be subject to great ridicule and most of these oppressors will be women. She must however be willing to fight to the very end and that end should be a farfetched story.
There is no point in climbing a mountain if one is hoping to return half way. Same thing in the pursuit of greatness. Personally I am tired of reading about male billionaires dominating the world. What of all these great women around me?
Women have become more than mere child bearers and home makers. Women have taken on many roles. It’s the duty of every woman to support and uplift another woman. How can we even expect men to respect us if this is how we see each other; unworthy of any success!
