#WomenPower - We want equality, not speciality.

Hey fellows!
Today I'm writing about #WomenPower. Now, firstly, there are various incidents that we read daily in the news paper where women are discriminated on the basis of gender. And why is that? We're all humans, right? Moreover, women can do work that men can't.

You may ask a woman what she wants, and she will hand you a long list of things. But when you ask her what is that one thing you badly want, she will say - EQUALITY.

The question that I'd like to ask and answer is - Do women want to be treated specially or equally? - Do men know the difference?
There's a difference between being treated equally and being treated specially. We, women, want EQUALITY and I don't see any harm in that. Being treated equally is not much that anyone can ask for. Men need to know that there is a huge difference in the two. And, after reading comments on the internet almost daily, I'd say, Asking for equality doesn't make you a feminist, specially will. We do not want to be called feminists, but equalists maybe?

When we are all equal in the eyes of law, why should we not get equal treatment in society? Why is it so tough for society to accept that women deserve equal treatment? We ain't aliens after all. Moreover, equality is a fundamental right of every individual.

Coming over to being treated specially, I'd only say we don't want that. But atleast put efforts to give us equal treatment.

A man works and earns for the family, but even a woman does that. And apart from that, women have to look after the house, kids, and everything. We leave our house where we lived since childhood for a new family, after marriage. We change our surnames. We SACRIFICE. In return, we do not wish for anything but just being treated EQUALLY. Is that a lot to ask for? Refer the image below, and you'll know how much multi-tasking women have to do to keep the family running smoothly.

Shahrukh Khan, in his movie, Chennai express said, 'Don't under-estimate the power of a common man' and today, I say, 'Don't under-estimate the power of a common woman. Just give her equal treatment and see where she reaches!'

We come to know about incidents where women are tortured for dowry. I want to ask the men - Are you not capable enough to support your family or buy a bike/car that you have to demand it from your in-laws in the name of 'Love'? Break stereotypes, and give equality to women.

This image is apt in every sense. Treat her equally and see that sky is the limit for her. :)
And I can say that because of many women who fought the gender discrimination and are very successful today, be it sports, movies or any other field, women are not behind in giving their best. So give them what they deserve - Equality.

Let equality prevail, women will take the world to more heights.

Aquarian Female - This defines me completely.

Inconsistency and confusion describe the characteristics of an Aquarius female. The same goes for her love life too. She is very loyal. She will be committed and remain faithful too, but do not try to bind her. Let her enjoy her freedom and in return, she will come back to you when she gets tired of her expeditions. She hums a different tune, which most of us have not even heard of.

An Aquarian female loves her freedom and if you can accept this, she will love you even more. Within her boundless limits, her love is also limitless. Position and power matter to her more than bank balance. If you want her to fall in love with you, be true and honest.

An Aquarian girl's love will be subtle and unassuming. She is intense, but may prefer to be platonic most of the time. She will always be a social delight. She will trust you completely and will not be unduly suspicious of your activities. You will also not be bothered by too much jealousy or possessiveness on her part. *Her trust arises from the fact that before committing, she had dissected your behavior under a microscope.* Only after being convinced of your integrity did she take the next step. Still, if you become unfaithful to her, she will be extremely hurt and is likely to remember the wound for a long time. She has a very strong will power. If she thinks the relationship is not working and has no chances of improving also, she will break it right away; though doing so may tear her heart into two pieces.

She will never ever be dishonest in a relationship. She will always try to know your deepest thoughts and secrets, but her own dreams will be beyond your reach. Conversing with an Aquarian female is usually a delight because of her charming manners. Her mind is quite unpredictable and you will find it hard keeping track. She will live in the present, then suddenly be wistful about yesterday and then, become enthusiastic about tomorrow.

She may talk about fairies one day and discard elves as humbug, the other. Never look down on her or she might never look upto you. She respects you and will expect the same in return. If she loves you, she will love your negative qualities too. As mothers, Aquarian women tend to be very loving and caring. An Aquarius female may find it difficult to express her love in the form of hugs and kisses and you will have to teach her that, since expressing emotions does not come too easily to her. She will happily hold your hand and walk besides you, but don't expect her to gaze into your eyes for hours at a stretch.

Don't smother your Aquarian girl with too much closeness, she needs her space and will give you yours. Things like suspicion, possessiveness, chauvinism and criticism turn her off. Just be nice to her odd bunch of friends and she will warmly welcome yours into the house. Make use of her intuition and insight, it may help you in solving a problem or two. It may seem like wishful thinking now, but then, remember she looks in the future. Hold her hand and she will let you see the future too, where both of you are cozily living together! <3

That's me! Deal with it, or leave! ;)
 Do let me know if you know an aquarian with similar characteristics! ;)
