Of Woman Born


International Women's Day 2007

A Tribute to Women

- " The mother's battle for her child—with sickness, with poverty, with war, with all the forces of exploitation and callousness that cheapen human life—needs to become a common human battle, waged in love and in the passion for survival."

- "Only to have a grief equal to all these tears!"

- "... this world gives no room to be what we dreamt of being" .

Quotes from poems by Adrienne Rich (20th century), U.S. author.

Happy Women's day. Actually, women had been more than equal as enunciated by liberal jurists. They should strive for the removal of that privileged equality. Equality does not mean equal as per Karl Marx ideology. It must mean that they are free to achieve and enjoys the fruits of their labor. Meritocracy is the fundamental rights of women.
