Women's Day.... for what actually??

There is one question that bothering me ever since I first heard the term Women's Day! Why is the world waiting for Women's Day to celebrate womanhood? Do we need a "special day" to celebrate something that is one part of the human race. The more important half if you ask me. Celebrating womanhood has always felt like patronizing women to me! Come on everybody... lets celebrate the women in our life and give her flowers today treat her to something special today and then its back to the very same situation the next day. Nothing changes. Not one small thing. Nothing changes for the woman who was ready to receive those flowers and be treated special today! And why don't we come to that realization? Instead of posting sappy hallmark card/ FB status/ Tweet worthy dialogues out into the world and tagging the ladies in your life in that post, actually for a change try doing something for them daily. Learn to make a cup of tea for yourself, wash the dishes for her after dinner. One small action daily that can help ease the burden on the woman in your life. They actually really don't care about the flower you get them on this one day in a year, if they seem happy about it them trust me they just got swept up in all the marketing circus that is all our social media fueled lives!

Women are not the fragile flowers that men want to believe we are. If we have the power to create life, then we have to power to turn you to dust also. Don't laugh!! We really do. It really is our secret superpower although many women don't realize it (that's why its called secret superpower). Just imagine one day you wake up and the woman in your life is not there. How would you react to that situation? I can tell you one thing if that question was reversed, women would score much higher. Its not how you would react to that situation its how you pick up the pieces of your life after the world shatters around you and how you would troop on forward. We see blood monthly. We are not scared of this! We transform ourselves many times in our life its just a matter of time before that woman is reborn again. 

Stop patronizing the woman in your life! Its the very least you can do to celebrate "Women's Day" !!

....and if you really want to get her flowers make sure they come in a pot and don't die in two days time!!


  1. Anu .. awsome post... and as always your wordings are just awsome. And those who read this will surely think twice before they criticize any women for any reason next time

  2. "ഞാൻ ഇതിലെ ആദ്യത്തെ പാര വായിച്ചു കഴിയുന്നതിലിം മുൻപ് നിന്നെ വിളിച്ചൊരു ഹാപ്പി വിമൻസ് ഡേ പറയാൻ തീരുമാനിച്ചു. വിറയാർന്ന കൈകൾ കൊണ്ട് ചേർത്ത് പിടിച്ചു ഇതാ എൻ്റെ വകയും ഒരു ഹാപ്പി വിമൻസ് ഡേ.

    അപ്പൊ ഞാൻ തിരിച്ചും പറഞ്ഞു "ഹാപ്പി വിമൻസ് ഡേ ട്ടോ യു ടൂ സലീഷേട്ടാ " ;-)

  3. Women's Day is just another occasion to celebrate the commodification of women.
