Women in action

As I joined the solidarity march on November 25 to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women only in the half, not much can say about it, especially when Onnik at Oneworld gives a detailed account, but the idea of uniting the youth and bringing them together is rather intriguing though. I wished such demonstrations gave more results and it’d be better to have them sooner than later. Wish this was not just an action to have fun or walk with friends, wish people sincerely fought for their goals overcoming all the difficulties.

Well, as I brought another saying earlier sometimes things just seem to be patriarchycal in Armenian families, аs Armenian men like to boast that “Man is the head of the family”, but in addition to that women secretly say: “And woman is the neck of the family, logically what side the neck turns that side the head will go”. Just women let their husbands vaunt a bit unless they have anything worthy to brag with. So, it was interesting to read on the leaflets they were distributing: “Women have their fingers on the pulse of the community”. Hmmm… let me think… Right!

Again, a question – why did God create the woman later? Answer – After the failure with the first experiment God needed something sublime, more ideal 😉

Anyways, this is a good idea, let’s keep together girls, our power is in our united efforts!!! Not once we have proved that we are good in anything and everything, there’s not an arduous task for us, not a place where we can’t fit in pretty well and take the rule. And who said we are the weaker sex ???!!!

    Physically we still are weak, that bred the problem in the first place. It’s good to know women try and make their voices heard though.

    Lola I quite agree with you. Athlete women come to prove that physically they are no worse. Now it drives me to the idea that it’s convenient for women to pretend weaker for giving men the chance to be gallant. But let’s face the reality in Armenia. Aren’t they mostly the Armenian women who carry the heavy bags from markets while their husbands are comfortably sitting in their sofas watching TV? I bet those women’s muscles are stronger than that of their husbands. And it is not the only brunt they bear on their shoulders, they are dime a dozen. But all in all they still strive for taking more responsibilities. All hats off to such women!!

    I have every confidence in the more capable among Armenia’s women. Thankfully, I’m fortunate enough to know one of the most impressive and able, and we’re all lucky enough to be able to read her blog.

    That woman, Zara, is you, and you fill me with confidence for the future of Armenian women and youth when I know there are individuals like you around. Like I’ve said before, you’re one in a million.
