Hey folks , this post is meant to heal my aching heart from what happened to me today .Today , while reading newspaper i came across an article that read :
Another part of a book named “Marriage and family life” is distributed to those women in Turkey who are going to get married soon , the first part was distributed in December and it is written by an ex employee of the “Religious Affairs Department” named “Hassan Caleisken” , what it says is as follows –
- Women should dress according to his husband .
- She should follow what her husband says.
- If a women does not listen to her husband ,or if she do not dress as his men pleases then her husband have the right to beat her up , and she should stay ready for it .
- After being beaten up , a women should wear beautiful clothes and impress her husband , she should make coffee for him .
- If your husband is angry with you , you should stay calm and ask for his forgiveness.
- Women should not go to theaters,or watch drama because there are ghosts and spirits.
- Women should also not visit sports center or parks.
I know you might have been outraged by now but This is not the end of this men’s wit , there are so many things i didn’t mention .
See , i am not married , neither do i live in Turkey , but it still offended me and every women on this planet … What a misogynist this men is ??? We feel pride in saying that we belong to the digital era , where men have stepped its foot even on Mars ,we talk about gender equalization, but i don’t think that a women might have been humiliated in such a way even in the stone age period …even then she had the right to wear whatever she liked …
There are women protesting against the book in Turkey , but how long we will have to do it , for everything we want , we have to protest ,we have to fight for years to make a change …
I never talk about feminism nor women empowerment , why do we have to ??? I mean these are our rights we are as human as the men out there .We took birth on this planet at the same time men did , then why we have to ask them for everything , god has provided us with equal rights as men , then why we have to fight for them …
I don’t say women are perfect , they are symbols of love and kindness and blah,blah,blah…But this doesn’t mean that you have the right to captivate them in their own place , deprive them from their rights .Even men are not perfect , so shall we write a book for men on “How to behave with a women “…
I think a men with such malevolent thoughts should be sentenced to death, if he can write such things than what he could have been doing to his wife or daughter ….I am afraid . What message he might have been trying to give to all men’s out there ,and all in the name of religion , he should be ashamed of himself .
I am sorry if i have crossed any limits ,but i could not stop myself from writing this post .
