Freeing Eve from Adam’s World


Saudi Arabia silenced the world when its leaders announced that they are sending female athletes to the 2012 Olympics- for the first time.

However when the international sports event closed, the Arabian female athletes went home devastated not for losing but for being branded “prostitutes” and “shameless”.

Undeniably, it will take centuries for uncivilized people to realize that the world was not created (by whoever the real God is) for the male population only.

Luckily in the Philippines, the scene is much different. We celebrate when a strong woman goes on top of men. 

In fact we have entrusted our country to two female presidents, Corazon Aquino and Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo respectively. And we continue giving every Filipina the avenue to accomplish something great.

When Maria Lourdes Sereno was named the new chief judge of the country, we never questioned her competence as a woman to run our justice system. This deserves a more-fun-in-the-Philippines tag.

In other countries, women have also started proving that Queens are as valuable as Kings.
Britain’s former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is notable for having a male-like ego, and for using an “iron hand” to rule their wide territory.

In Argentina, former first lady Evita Peron massively influenced Argentines to adore her husband Peron. Now, the Latin American country is headed by a woman.

Evita must have reincarnated into a Filipina named Imelda Marcos who drove the masses to respect her dictator husband Ferdinand.

Even in religion, the Anglican Church (which is very similar to the Roman Catholic Church) is allowing women to become priests. Other sects have also bid goodbye to the traditional patriarchal system.

We do not mean female domination. We only need gender equality. We only stop shouting this- if and only if unborn babies are given the freedom to pick their own gender or sex.

Thanks to intellectuals who keep empowering the female population despite the fact that some institutions for women have been bombed by less intellectual radicals and some self-proclaimed Godly lawmakers cannot protect the welfare of our mothers, sisters, daughters and granddaughters.
