Women's Issues are Bigger Than Reproductive

Updated on December 22, 2017
There is more to women than this.
There is more to women than this.

When did we lose our selves?

Women fought long and hard to be respected, to be able to own property and businesses and to get the right to vote. These hard fought battles should be remembered to empower generations to come.

However lately it seems like the only thing important to women is that others pay for their personal choice to copulate with others. Men and women are supposed to be equal in the eyes of the law, however women, primarily the professional and educated ones, have reversed the progress that Susan B. Anthony and others fought for, and they are fighting long and hard to convince the less educated that they are right to turn back the hands of time.

When did a women become nothing more than reproductive organs? We were that in the beginning; after all it is important that people be born to populate the planet and survive the elements. However there seem to be enough children to go around these days.

Women should remember that they are bread-winners, providers, cooks, chiefs, nurses, doctors, mothers, lawyers, and entrepreneurs. We are more than the content of what lies beneath the waistband.

Women are truly miraculous beings. We have the ability to give new life. That is a beautiful thing, but is it all we are? Are we not scholars and leaders? Mothers are great--I have a mother and I am a mother. Without us to nurture our children where would our world be?

But I contend that employment, economics, energy, and other social issues are very important to us too. We should not be reduced to our genitals. We should be embraced as entire people that are capable of higher thoughts. We should not be used as political pawns in the world of men and women who would try to remind us of our humble beginnings. We should embrace that which we have become.

Women's issues should be human issues. Women and men are equals and should be treated as such. To have sexist politicians and big mouth celebrities tell us that we should be thinking about abortions and birth control provided for free by unwitting others is insulting. We are capable, but we are being led by lie upon rhetorical lie to believe that we are nothing more than what they say we are--reproductive organs with a mouth.

Women should remember our humble beginnings, and see how far we've come. After all, we had come a long way--BABY, why would any of us want to turn around and go back to the beginning now?
