For every woman*

(a self-esteem booster)

For every woman who is tired of acting weak when she knows she is strong; there is a man who is tired of appearing strong when he feels vulnerable.

For every woman who is tired of acting dumb; there is a man who is burdened with the constant expectations of “knowing everything”

For every woman who is tired of being called “an emotional female”; there is a man Β who is denied the right to weep and be gentle.

For every woman who feels “tied down” by her children; there is a man who is denied the full pleasure of shared parenthood.

For every woman who is denied meaningful employment and equal pay; there is a man who must bear full financial responsibility of another human being

For every woman who was not taught the intricacies of an automobile; there is a man who was not taught the satisfaction of cooking.

FOR EVERY WOMAN WHO TAKES A STEP TOWARD HER OWN LIBERATION; THERE IS A MAN WHO FINDS THAT THE WAY TO FREEDOM HAS BEEN MADE A LITTLE EASIER.
