On Woman Empowerment

by Anita R. Belagodu

On Woman Empowerment
I am in love with this woman
Her secrets, mysterious ways.
Her love and sacrifice defy a dozen deaths of unkind mankind.
She is for one, mightier than a man!

Seen a mistake in Christening her Weaker Sex.
A blunder in calling her Girl Child.
Female Foeticide!!! Ha! Not even dogs differentiate!!
Yet, she dares and bares all to rebel an entire human race?

Deaf ears care less to hear her woes against Child Marriage.
Blind eyes fail to see burns victims or angry dowry deaths.
In ancient days, she dumbfounded people with Sati system
With resilience , overcomes domestic abuse with her winning ways.

Be it a stormy marriage or a gender-biased workplace,
Partial in-laws or impartial laws, both legal and illegal,
She will rise and rise like a PHOENIX
At every crisis, challenged!

Her androgynous instincts, last, live and endure to celebrate
An undying spirit of womanhood, carried through daughters.
She walks the world with pride and unparalled stride.
Creator’s best - A Woman Empowered!

Women and their contribution
by: Gadadhara

A powerful poem , very well thought out and beautifully written.
I only wish more people, particularly men, recognise the contribution women make in their homes and in the society.
