I am very depressed after I see women suffering, when they come up to me to tell me how they are in abusive relationships and they cant walk out of because they are not educated.
I am very greatful to my parents who actually made me who I am today, they let me study and made it possible for me to stand up on my feet. Be it my own clothes, shoes,
Other luxuries, my personal expense, my holidays, delivering the baby in the US (which literally costed me an entire lifetime of savings, i got no help from anyone be it my parents or my inlaws), throwing a welcome party for him or full filing my childs everyday needs. I have done it all myself (financially), reason being that I was educated enough to earn a living for myself, smart enough to save it and invest it and then using it at the right time.
And you know why I could do it?
Because I had parents who believed that a girl child needs education, a girl child needs to be independent and a girl child needs to be strong to survive in this world.
You ladies here are raising a generation! Our future generation, our daughter! Please fight all you have to and make them stand on their own feet before you get them married. Marriage is not what their life should be focused around. Make them strong and independent so they do not have to suffer like you did.
Please dont tell them k parh likh kar kya karna hai, dont tell them k shadi he to karni hai! Dont!! Lets promise each other today that we will raise a better generation with empowered women. InshAllah
