Back in the days, a man was always measured by how hard he worked and cultivated and by how well he protected his wife and children. Women saw them as their protectors, their heroes. Men spent their time out working, while the women stayed at home, cooking and taking care of the house and children. So what changed? How did women get to this platform where they can stand as equals in a man’s world? Do women not want to be protected any more? Has the pain, they’ve had to endure in life, caused them to be somewhat stronger and more determined in life? The world has taken away a man’s reason for being a man. Sometimes it’s a good thing when your whole world turns upside down. You get a new perspective on things. You can relate to others losses, their pain.
Throughout history, from the great wars right down to sports, women have proved again and again of their capabilities to stand side by side with men, maybe even a few steps higher. How is it then that we’re brought right back to where we started from as soon as a man is threatened by our presence? Threatened we might overtake, do better and prove them wrong? Does pride step in, therefore, making it harder to appreciate your ‘opponents’ success?
