The Women Fighting
Women have had a secondary role in society! They have always stayed home doing housework. They have been cooking, washing,, and cleaning for centuries. Was that what really wanted? Nobody asked them. The street has always been men’s territory . Men have been going out of the house day after day to get money. This gave them economic independence and, in most of cases, a feeling of superiority.
But then came the 20th century and things have been changing gradually. One of the most significant changes for women happened with the suffragettes. They fought for the women s right to vote. . Then, step by step, women have been conquering new rights and engaging in new movements. Nowadays we see more women competing with men in professional fields . some countries have women as presidents and prime ministers.
There are also many feminist leagues and clubs fighting the so-called “macho men society”. Their slogans say “ Women are so capable as men”, “men are less energetic than women”, etc. Of course these are just slogans, but they reveal deep changes . There are fewer women doing housework . They are out in the street - as much as men – fighting for economic independence and for a more decent social position.
