Take off the gloves and BE A LADY

BE A LADY: While today is a day to celebrate womanhood, we would be remiss to ignore the ways in which women are being masculinized in society. Women working while taking care of their families is accompanied by the micro aggression that women can be "like men." This idea shows up in women participating in street fights, bar brawls and "slap" competitions that are posted on Youtube and shared for entertainment throughout social media. Not to mention on various reality TV shows. Women are able to protect themselves and some are true warriors in the most literal sense, yet the notion of pursuing fights and deliberately seeking ways to relieve physical aggression is a more masculine trait in most societies.

In ancient African communities women were often the hunters and gatherers (i.e., providers). This was based sheerly on their natural proclivities. When they returned home with food they still nurtured their children.

Today, femininity is under attack. Masculine and feminine traits are fluid in both genders in the name of equality, overshadowing the fact that there is difference between equal right and equal roles.

Not all women will express their feminine traits in the same manner ever, but in this era of post-modern thought it is important to remain sexually and socially distinct.
