Ever since ancient Greece, women have been the most unsung social triggers in history; they have done all of the hard work, but in the shadows and have never received any recognition for their hard labor other than the satisfaction of a job well done. I often ask myself how many of the historical changes have been in fact the brain child of a woman “behind a man”.
There have been a few throughout history that have made the difference in their chosen field, writers like Virginia Wolf, painters like Frida Kahlo and even political figures like Eva Peron or Shirley Temple -indeed the sweet child who tapped danced grew up to be a renowned international political figure- and most have done all of that while being also devoted wives and mothers.
Equality is not so far ahead, and do not confuse equal rights with being the same -a mistake most people fighting against equal rights tend to make-, the so called “minorities” do not want to be like the rest, we thrive and grow on our uniqueness, find strength in those things that make us special and all we ask for is to have the same rights that you were born with.
Women don’t want to be men, why would they? they are fine as they are. Why is it that some people find women in power emasculating or what’s worse, masculine?; our mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins and nieces all want the same, to be paid the same as the rest, to be given fair treatment at the work place and to be simply given a voice as loud as yours, and ever since they got the right to vote, it has laid a ground for all of these things to slowly come to pass.
In second life I have met many incredible women who are ground breaking and are making an difference, I am both privileged and honored to have met them and even call some of them my friends, to all of you out there, in RL or SL who happen to be an important part of my life -or not- happy women’s equality day.
There’s still a lot of ground to cover, but the fun part about reaching a goal is the journey, not the destination.

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
