She..

She is worshiped
She is treasured
She is given all the luxuries of life that can be offered

Yet

She does not have Freedom

Freedom to make her own choices
Freedom to make her own mistakes
Freedom to live her life in her own terms
Freedom to learn from her own mistakes

Give her an education
Give her a chance to make it worthwhile
Give her a chance to grow, show her the love and watch her blossom

She is no less than a son.

Say NO to Gender Inequality and Female Infanticide.

vandana said...

So true ..just brings perfectly out the double standard mindset of people in general

Worst thing is sometimes it is done like they are doing it as a favour to their daughter

Anand said...

Luk at the positive. It's happening now..slowly and steadily. That's progress.

Give it a bit of time. :-)
