Firstly wishing all the beautiful souls a Happy women’s day. While We celebrate Women’s Day every year, have we realized the unintentional Bias that has been created but not broken until now!
We say men and women are equal but mistakenly we use few “words” in our daily life that come as a bias towards one gender. Languages all over the world are full of gender bias words. While there is a thought of creating the equilibrium but we forget that the very basic Bias is yet prevalent. Let’s create a Gender balance world on this women’s day.
Talking about the same, we tried to break down the beans with our celebrity guest Bhoomika Mirchandani:
As women, we do not preach to give ourselves a higher Status in the world. They say a woman can’t be equal to men they’re always superior, we don’t want that.
We seek to create a gender-balanced world. If these words stay part of our vernacular, We’ve failed as a society. Let’s pull out the unnecessary barrier of inequality from all over the world and break the bias and be unbiased.
We at “Robust story” want to highlight such Biased words and appeal to you to understand the unbiased meaning of words:
What do you think your daughter would rather become?
A fireman or firefighter?
Businessmen or Businessperson?
How many girls dream of becoming a policeman? Can she dream to be a Police officer?
Do you know what’s the percentage of women working as a cameraman?
Can we address all as Camera Operator ? and not make it bias!
While speaking to Bhoomika, I have one thing to point out for all. We as women are really strong, We Don’t fear struggles and conflicts because we have the potential to lift the entire world and change its shape. We have our equal contribution to the society
Why the Biased words are used and go unnoticed?
Well, as Bhoomika Enlighted that all this comes from ages-old tradition. When women were only supposed to be in-home and take care of the family. Luckily times have been changed, we are in an era where we can witness equality in some or another way. Yet, a Long way to go. But today the profession is not decided over the physical strength but on the merits and skills. We are living in an age where being a woman is not that hard as compared to earlier times.
Society is men centric for ages now, but now the change is evident. I must say this change came into existence not only because of the efforts of women but also men. Men are happy by giving the lead to women. As a society, it doesn’t matter who is leading who, it’s all about growing up together as a society.
Sometimes men forget that giving respect to women starts from home but doesn’t end in society. You should be more respectful as a man in society because you don’t know her in person you may offend Unintentionally. We do respect our mother, Sister, Wife, Friend but somewhere we fail to be gentleman enough to a woman who is a stranger out there.
Such biased words are part of our language and now is the high time to notice these errors. As the times have changed and we need to change our perspective too.
Our Guest Bhoomika did say the same. It doesn’t impact us as women but yes it’s an error in the language and we must address the right words as our practice. Some of the words are incorrect as good as if you refer a man with “she” while speaking, the man will immediately correct you with “He”
We hope this Inspiring potion has energized all the women and men.
On women’s day we as a robust Story appeal for gender equality in general. Nobody is better than the other, we all are stronger together.
