Hello, Connections! Welcome back to my weekly column #ATHCOriginal #AskATHC. Today, I want to discuss a rather controversial topic—#Women.

#UnitedShowbiz #Gender #eqyality #Education #womenempowerment #TedTalk #Inspiration #Movies
Last week, I discussed #ContentWriting, but today's topic is different. Before going further, I want to declare outright that I am not a feminist or atheist. I am just a pragmatic, who sees a glass & water as two distinct things rather than seeing it half-empty or half full.
World has moved forward. Girls have gone to space! But culture, religion, ethics, & social evils continue to haunt girls worldwide. I don't want to talk about India, you've plenty of cases where women face atrocities almost every single day here. #RuralIndia #WomenLifeFreedom

1⃣ You can't turn a hoe into a housewife

If you settle for leftovers, that's what you get

Leftover everything. Love, energy, emotion, etc.

You are basically signing up with a woman who cannot bond with you

The more notches a woman has, the worse she treats her husband
She becomes extremely cold overnight

⚫️ Leftover sex energy

Women with high body counts get low libido at an earlier age than most women

That means that women who have been promiscuous are highly likely to have no sexual energy left for the men who settle down with them

It's deeply disturbing that only about 2 out of 10 women in Pakistan 🇵🇰 have access to a bank account 🏦.
This lack of financial inclusion not only limits women's ability to make their own financial decisions and have autonomy, but it also has significant social and economic impacts.
Access to finance has been linked to women's empowerment 💪, allowing them to create economic opportunities for themselves and, in turn, improve the welfare of their families 🤝.

Dalits are viewed as untouchables in the Brahmin caste system, and their women are used as sex slaves to brahmins. Here are a few instances that demonstrate how these brahman men solely regard our women as sex symbols.
*Dalit girl beaten by Hindus for going near Temple.

*Sanjay Sharma, a brahman pandit gang-raped a Dalit woman.…
*Dalit woman fired after upper caste Hindu Brahmin refused to eat food prepared by her.
*Brahman bans the entry of Dalits and Menstruating women into the Temple. ImageImage

Another Rough Journey🙏🏽
Also, in November 2018, our attention was called to a case of a 13-year-old girl (from Idoma, Benue State), resident in Lagos but was summoned for #FGM in Ogun State wherein a community of migrant-Benue people were resident.
Her people said, "If she's not ImageImage
circumcised, she won't attend her parents' burial AND if she dies as an uncircumcised girl, her corpse would be thrown into a forest!
I set out for the trip with the amazing Barrister Yemi Adetiba @OluyemiOrija - the most kind lawyer in Nigeria🙌🏽 - she's the founder of @HeadfortF
We actually raised our money (I and the Barrister) to make this journey to an unknown location.
The journey was fearful, long and energy-sapping - we entered one 'igbo irumole😁' to another and Bar Adetiba's husband was calling us every now and then to track down our location.

Though access to education has improved, those who are more educated remain unemployed because of the unavailability of formal jobs and low wages. Image

Women empowerment in Sparta:
Sparta was a prominent city-state in Laconia, a region located in Ancient Greece.
However, one of the most important aspects of its success is that during a time when the world began to curtail women, Sparta held women in high positions and made sure that they held property, and contributed to the Spartan economy.
Because Spartan men were often absent from the city-state during wars, including the city's two kings. Women were required to hold higher positions to help govern the city.

"I Was Circumcised Twice Before The Age Of 16!"
Teliwel Diallo Recalls Hers:
"When I was eight years old, my mother told me that it was time for me to become a woman. She took me somewhere. I met other #Girls, some friends and girls from the neighboring village.
It was a big #day. I didn’t know anything about excision. I was feeling happy inside. I did not know the consequences and pain of excision.
We were maybe one hundred girls. Everyone was waiting her turn. I could hear the cries of the #girl before me. I was frozen. I could not run
because it would be a dishonor for my #family. I was wondering whether I should run away or stay, but I didn’t have the choice.
I heard the #Girls crying. My turn came. It was atrocious. Four #women caught me, put me down, opened my sex and cut me. I cried out loudly. I feel that

૧૯૭૦ નો દાયકો. ઓડીશાના મયુરભંજ જેવા પછાત વિસ્તારમાં લોકોની ભીડ જામી હતી. રાજ્યના મંત્રી, કલેકટર અને અન્ય મોટા અધિકારીઓ ગામની મુલાકાતે આવ્યા હતા. મિટિંગ ચાલુ હતી દરમિયાન એક નાનકડી દીકરી લોકોની ભીડ ચીરતી આગળ આવે છે અને કહે છે. સાહેબ મારે આપને એક વાત કરવી છે..!1/13

How Greek Hellenism caused women to be curtailed through history:
In 507 BC in Ancient Greece, a thinker named Cleisthenes started a political ideology known as Democracy.
Democracy, meaning the 'rule of the people' in Greek, stated that instead of having tyrants who inherit the title of ruler rule over the people, people who were mature enough to make a decision would vote for a ruler.
Though Democracy was supposed to treat everybody equally, women were not allowed to vote for a ruler, have jobs or hold big titles in society. Women were treated as second class

1)You sir are a threat to girls and women’s sports! Biological males have NO place in girls or women’s sports! I will continue to fight and stand up for what is right! We women didn’t fight for our rights to be flushed down the toilet by the likes of YOU! 🧵#protectgirlssports
2) My grand daughter, who is part of the LGBTQ community, is going on 13 and I asked her “How would you feel after training so hard in your sport only to have to compete a boy who now says he’s a girl. That means sharing bathrooms & locker rooms!” #protectgirlssports
3) She said “Well Mimi, that wouldn’t be fair and no I would not want that. My thing is they should start a league of their own.” She’s 13 and sounds a hell of a lot smarter than you all pushing this crap on our girls!” Is she transphobic, a bigot because she feels that way?

In around 800 BC, a conqueror named Piye led campaigns to conquer the southern border of the Egyptian empire. His successful campaigns would later lead to the establishment of a great empire known as the Kushite empire or the kingdom of Kush.
The Kushite Empire soon started to prosper. However, the Egyptian empire claimed that the Kushite empire was a part of Egypt since it was so close to Egypt’s southern border. This resulted in multiple battles between Kush and Egypt.
But though Egypt was a stronger force, the Kushite empire was able to dominate most of the later battles with Egypt in its history.

6 things I wish I knew when I was 15:

#WomensDay #WomensDay2022 #womenempowerment

A thread 🧵
1. The Power of being Independent:

Growing up we all have been subjected to first-hand discrimination in a patriarchal institution in some way or the other.

My mom always told me that being able to stand on your own feet is the greatest sense of empowerment.
2. Do not be an emotional fool:

My dad always used to tell me that I make decisions emotionally and it will have a grave impact in my life.

Always take your brain with you wherever you take your heart. Don't be emotionally invested with poor ROI.
