Within every female, is the development of Motherhood; or the unveiling thereof. In some, the stage of Motherhood will come into fruition, whereas for others, it is but a dream.
That which is a development, is the unfolding discovering of something withheld from the knowledge of others. Nevertheless, it is present, but unseen until it is revealed. This is Motherhood, the uniqueness and the driving force within all females; the young and the mature.
The uniqueness of a female, however, is not only predicated upon being a mother. They are all born unique and special, for in them is love and life. However, Motherhood, prepares the little girl to love, and the awareness that in her is the unseen source of life. Regardless if she experiences being a mother or the lack thereof. Her being is still the epitome of life and love. Whereas, for those who experience being a mother, in them is the knowledge of an unmatched love, life and the nourishing of life. The wheel that moves society forward, or backwards.
On March 8, most of the world celebrates a day of Women; International Women's day. For some this is a day dedicated to women, but the truth is, a good husband or a spouse knows every day is about her. Likewise, the father of a little girl or a parent to a little girl, is aware she needs love daily, not just a day. And the son or daughter should forever be grateful to their mother.
For others, March 8 is more than a day to celebrate women. It is a time of agenda indoctrination. The United Nations' theme for International Women's Day 2015 was "Empowering Women…” From then until now (2018), about $ 1.3 billion has been spent by the United States worldwide for this cause.
If Women are not empowered, then they are the victim of rejection. Where there is a victim, there is a perpetrator. If the perpetrator is not held accountable by being the focus on the problem, the empowering of women only gives the perpetrator more reason to come against the woman.
Yes, a noble cause to empower a woman, but the woman is not the one needing a change in this situation. Those who abuse women are the perpetrators needing a change. Happiness, peace and prosperity is not based on wealth and power, rather the knowledge of love and respect.
The women that are abused are not victims for the lack of love, or the lack of respect in their being. They are abused when their love and respect are taken advantage of by men who are not held accountable for their action. In 2017, the United States distributed $1.3 billion in aid for women around the world for gender equality. Afghanistan is the top recipient with $253 million. The same year of 2017, the violence against women was on the rise in the country. The Oxfam reports the country “remains one of the most dangerous places to be a woman. 87% of Afghan women have experienced some form of violence.”
The increase of assault against women is on the rise, and the disrespect of the gender. So then, why would a lady seek equality to be as the cause of the problem? Society's mistake will be when it succeeds to make all women think they are the same as men. The woman was created for the man. This is not to demean the woman as a property of the man, rather the man without the woman is nothing.
My recollection knowing right from wrong.
It was a beautiful summer moonlight evening; the kids of the neighborhood gathered on the porch of my family home. I proudly sat on a bench given to me by my great grandmother for my 11th birthday. Visiting was my aunt, the last child of my grandparents, strangely so she is the aunt I am older than. She came up to me and said to me, Momma is calling you. I woke up instantly to go inside to meet with my mother. Before I could leave the porch to enter the house, my young aunt chuckled and took my bench. We were all kids, but my action as a kid did not validate my doing. I turned around knowing she was telling a lie. I removed her from the bench and sat back thereon.
She stormed into the house, telling my mom what has happened. I could hear the voice of my mother calling me. A child can tell the mother’s feeling through the tone of her voice, even if it is a single word. As I walk into the house from the porch, leaving the moonlight behind and entering into the soft night lights of the living room. I felt within myself, this is going to be easy, my aunt told a lie, and we are not to tell a lie, so I am right, and she is wrong. My mother, sitting down looking at the both of us, asked me what has happened. I explained, but to my utmost surprise; my mother said to me, you are wrong. Before I could reiterate in defense. She stopped me and said, never again, should you ever take a girl or a woman from a seat, never.
Do you understand me? I was in shock, but it was my mother and she meant what she said. I acknowledge that I understood. However, this wasn’t yet over. She then said to me, now apologize to her. It wasn’t pleasant for me, I felt like a failure knowing what I did was wrong because of a mother who did the right thing. I did apologize to my youngest aunt. I felt like a pebble, but today, I rather grow from a pebble into a mountain than being a mountain without knowing what it is to be a pebble. As we both walked back outside, she said to my aunt, her sister, go and find your own seat. She didn’t have to, I willingly gave her mine. What if I wasn’t told I was wrong? The mentality of what I did that evening was going to shape who I am today and my perception of women. What if my mother would have said to my young aunt, go and stand up to him? My childish, ignorant rage was going to lead me to overpower her more.
I concluded my aunt felt good about herself at the conclusion of this. Therefore, a lady can feel empowered in many ways, if the right people are available to do the right thing on her behalf.
If we as a society try to contain the problem, without addressing the source of the problem, the containment will hold, but for a while, until another precious female is the victim.
As society pushes gender equality, and gender neutrality, which were influenced Marxism through leaders such as Clara Zetkin, a Marxist. A philosophy which brings forth Communism, without digression from our point of interest. We shall look briefly at the meaning of Communism.
A political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned, and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.
On paper this presents itself as an ideal society, but what happens if a person’s ability is below a certain standard? Or if they are no longer needed? Or disagree on a given topic? For this, we gain a deeper insight into Communism, of which the gender equality movement is heading.
From its first development in 1917 until now, there have been an estimated 94 million deaths from Communist regimes worldwide.
65 million in the People's Republic of China
20 million in the Soviet Union
2 million in Cambodia
2 million in North Korea
1.7 million in Ethiopia
1.5 million in Afghanistan
1 million in the Eastern Bloc
1 million in Vietnam
150,000 in Latin America
10,000 deaths "resulting from actions of the international Communist movement and Communist parties not in power.
The statistics deaths of these victims were brought about in many ways, including executions, man-made hunger, and forced labor, etc., In the such world, would the woman be safer than she is now?
A country can fight against another country and in defeat one side may survive. Relatives may fight against one another, but somewhere down the line their descendants may make things right. However, a battle between the genders, without divine intervention, it will be the demise of society.
The gentle heroes
A woman is great when she realizes who she is through her God-given abilities and apply them with love. Such was the historical record of the dawn of World War II. As patriotic men and boys stepped forth to defend their country at war, overseas. Their departure left a vacuum in the factories of the United States. This vacuum was filled with millions of mothers, daughters, wives, schoolgirls and secretaries. Building tools, machinery, weapons and planes that would eventually win World War II.
A war doesn’t last forever, but the wheel of society must continue to roll onward. The woman is the wheel that keeps society moving.
Today, society is stalling, in most third world countries and non-western nations, women are the victims of brute men who are virtually never held accountable for their actions. On the contrary, in the western world where freedom is enjoyed by both genders, women are forgetting the value of who they are. The significance of motherhood, is considered an oppression. Wherein, mothers are indoctrinated, to compete with men. Entering the workforce, while leaving their young to will of a stranger.
Therefore, future generations of young people are being raised without the natural affection of a mother’s love. However, if by any means working is the resource for keeping her family alive; regardless of how many hours she works, her love will never be hindered from reaching her young. But, if working is carried out to show empowerment, the empowerment is her focus, and not the joy of motherhood.
As the love of a mother cannot be hindered toward her young. Rest assure woman, nothing can stop the love of God and His promise toward you. Yes, you have faced persecution throughout the ages, but through you, the great Redeemer came forth. You are called woman, a compound of womb and man. For in you is mankind. As long as God has promised to always be with mankind, you shall not perish.
