EQUITY MUST BEGIN AT HOME

 


EQUITY MUST BEGIN AT HOME

-         K. V. Dominic (India)

 

Equity must begin at home
When parents long for a son
a daughter born faces displeasure
She faces segregation from childhood
She lives with isolation throughout her life
Only a few get higher education
Hence less employed in higher posts
She gets less wage for same labour he does
Very few get equal share of family property
Religion shows worst discrimination
She can't be priests and even

denied entry into God's abode
What a pity, she can't choose her own dress
whereas he wears whatever he likes!

He rules the world and

she has very little  representation

in governments and lawmaking bodies

Unless he decides she can’t be uplifted

LOVE your sisters and daughters

Then there will no more be discrimination
