Some think that when women wants to have equal right they are crossing the boarder of hating men and being men. Whet is you view about women fighting for equal rights? I think women in some countries even in this modern world are simply good for housewife or househelper. Men has the right to put limitations to their freedom.

I'm a woman. I believe we have roles to play and that men have roles to play in every relationship. I don't think it should be always one or the other gender that does stuff just because society considers it the norm. When I used to healthy enough, I would mow the lawn and take out the garbage. I don't have a problem with taking the car for an oil change and I can't say I have ever had a garage take advantage of my gender to make millions of unneeded repairs. I think freedom is in knowing who you ARE, regardless of what other people think of you. For example, I don't think we should expect just to get rights because we are Jewish, or African American, or female, or whatever. No one DESERVES equal rights. You need to claim them, not wait for them to be given to you.

You've said it all, my friend. I agree with you wholly. Wonen's liberation is not in one woman's fighting for what she believes in or for what she thinks she deserves, but rather in doing what she ought to do as a person. cheers! :)

I believe in equal rights for all humans. Unfortunately in our world that's not possible due to religious and cultural beliefs. That's why the world is in such a mess.

It can be a question only for people from the East. It is not a question overhere in Europe.

Years ago,when I said women should have the same rights as men, I meant that there should be equal pay for equal work and a woman should not get $2.00 an hour when a man could get $5.00 an hour for the same work. I also figured that if a woman had the muscles and stamina of a man, as they do in some East European countries, that she could be a firefighter as much as a man. However, when I talked to others about women's rights, they thought of this as s*exual liberation, that if men could have affairs with no consequences, women could as well. I do believe that there are some tasks that men are better at then women. We are designed for different ways and since us women are ruled by our hearts, we may make decisions that seem right at the moment, but at the long run are bad. I do believe that housework, housewives, and househelpers should be recognized as being an important part of contributing to the economy and women who choose these tasks, not be made to feel as if they are second class citizens just because they do not run a corporation.

I believe in womens lib up to a point like equal job rights. And no, I don't believe men have the right to put limitation on women or freedom. That would be not having you own ideals but his, your own thoughts but his, your own rights but his. This is a free country and it's what freedom is all about. However, I do believe there are certain limitations and I firmly stick to the idea that the man is head of the house. But also if they want us to share expenses paying bills, they also have to share the kids and cores in the house. And anyway a housewife's job, never ends and they should be grateful they have someone to take care of their house and kids. No one has the right to put limitations on you nevertheless to you freedom
