Women’s Liberation

I’ve met a number of smart, talented, successful women who, despite all they’ve done in life and all the obstacles they’ve overcome, nevertheless doubt themselves or, worse, dislike themselves. It breaks my heart to see them discounting their accomplishments, denying their own power, or worrying they aren’t pretty or thin enough.

I don’t have a solution to this problem. I don’t pretend to know how it feels to be a woman living in a patriarchal society like mine. Without implying they need my validation, I simply want to tell these women: I see you, I respect you, I’m rooting for you.

    In my humble opinion, as a man I think generally speaking it is more difficult for women than men. Our society sends the message that women need to look perfect. That is not right or fair. I think that women do more to contribute to the world than men. Women for the most part are nurturing people. I think that women are just as tough as men and in many ways tougher.
