Philosophical perspective of the gender theory: Femininity vs. Masculinity

Just for starters, it is important to understand that I firmly believe in equal rights for men and women. It is not fair that just because you’re a woman/man, you don’t get opportunities that the other gender gets.  The rights between women and men should be pretty much equal. This is because a woman and a man represent two types of divine energy, male and female elements of a single soul. For a person to lead a total life, she or he must have both forms of energy that are the power of giving, the power of receiving, and the power of subtlety. Women usually represent the idea of inner dignity, and while men by nature are physically stronger, they are often externally oriented and more aggressive. The nature of a woman, while subtle, is not weak and the nature of a man, while aggressive, is not brutish. For a woman and man to be complete, they must have both energies.

                 Liberation of Women

Men are beginning to realize that women can no longer be seen as commodities. Those days are far gone. Women no longer want to stay feeble, inactive or weak and they no longer tolerate exploitation, injustice, torture, hatred and insults at the hands of male manipulators. The women’s liberation movements in the West and East have emerged out of this changed psychology. The signs of the awakening of women are clearly seen in every corner of social life. I believe all women and men have the opportunity to establish themselves in society, depending on their determination. When men and women do not have equal opportunities to take part in decision-making, there are direct social and economic costs.

    Collective responsibility

Women and men must realize their respective responsibilities and strive to complement each other in their struggle to improve life. To correct the problem of male dominance, men must consider using their qualities for good. They must use their strength to preserve and protect the feminine character, helping women realize their potential in which the world so desperately needs today. If you look in depth, you will realize that we are all the equal whether you are a woman or a man.
