YOU’RE THE MAN, BUT I GOT THE POWER!
Destroy the idea that men should respect women because we are their daughters, mothers, and sisters. Reinforce the idea that men should respect women because we are PEOPLE.

Men all around the world feel the tendency to treat us women as absolute trash, just because they’re men. They feel like they have the right to put us down, but they’re wrong.
“Strong men – men who are truly role models – don’t need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful.” -Michelle Obama
Unfortunately, in many cultures, men seek marriage to acquire a wife who will serve his entire family.
Please make sure you mention to the girl that you are essentially looking for a maid, not a wife. At least be honest.
I am obsessed with becoming a woman comfortable in her own skin.
As a girl that grew up in the Middle East I have realized that people tend to criticize everything your looks, size, whether you are wearing makeup or not, where do you go out, and when? Who do you go out with? …etc. you know, all those basic stuff that normal human beings shouldn’t judge you about.
I won’t lie, I am an overweight girl that doesn’t have a care in the world what other people say about her, but when people (men) start talking about my future and they suddenly decide that no one will want to marry me because of my weight. That is where I start to care, because who are you to decide what my future will look like? We are all equal. God created us and God makes no mistakes.
Some days I wouldn’t want to go out because I don’t feel pretty or confident enough to wear what I want! I used to be afraid of how will people look at me, because I have heard it multiple times whether it is from my parents, family members, friends, or even people that I don’t know in gatherings “oh look at her it’s sad that she’s pretty but she’s also fat”
I have the right to be able to go out and live my life the way I WANT.
Women all around the world should have the right to do whatever the hell they want. To work, to be educated, to be confident in their OWN SKIN.
So I say women we got the power, we’re in control.
Like Beyoncé once said “We need to reshape our own perfection of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and TAKE THE LEAD.”
