Oh the double standard...
Why is it o.k. for men, but not for women? This question can cover a whole range of topics. Why is o.k. for men to degrade women or force them to dress a certain way? Why is it that men can dictate whether a woman gets educated or not? Men have no problem showing their breasts on a basketball court or on a jogging trail, yet a woman breastfeeding in public is still not accepted or tolerated. Women still do not earn as much as men. Don't get me started on the fashion industry. Things have improved for women over the years - you know voting rights, driving and stuff (though not in every country) yet there is still that divide. So, what do we do about it?
It starts with us women. It starts with knowing our intrinsic self-worth. It starts with us choosing to no longer believe that we must be a certain weight, have a certain breast size or bear children to be worthy. Society has perpetuated the idea that women are not as worthy as men and women have bought into it. Most women hold conscious and subconscious beliefs that we aren't as worthy in some way or another and the experience is backed up by what we see in ads and in the world around us. It's time to shift that perspective. Release those belief codes and choose to experience our worth.
Gender, race, creed or handicap do not matter. We are ALL worthy. I am no better than you and you are no better than me. From now on, I choose to experience my self-worth. I am more than my body and mind. I come from LOVE/Source and that alone proves my worth. If you choose to experience intolerance and not being worthy - that is your choice. But, should you choose to shift that, it starts with you. Once you shift, your light will encourage others. I applaud those who are calling our attention to the issue by putting out things like the cartoon above or this awesome video below. I have a deep respect for those who stand in their power like Malala, the teen who stands for girls to be educated. Whoever you are, wherever you live, whatever your gender - just be you and remember your intrinsic worth.
