    Why do we always hate men for not understanding and supporting us? Why have we made this a war of the genders, when there are just as many women who judge us, dismiss us, dehumanise us and devalue us? All those aunties who are over-eager to get you married the moment you hit eighteen. Those women who judge you if you are doing better than them at life. Slut, bitch, whore… They call you all sorts of names. Those who urge you to try and make an abusive marriage work. Those who think you need a man to be accepted. Those who have no inhibitions ruining your relationships and seducing the man you are with. Those who would probably destroy you, if they see you walking with a man. Very few women actually uplift each other. We try to bring each other down more than any man does. What are your thoughts about it?

    Jealousy is the only word I can think of at the moment. The emotion of jealousy is experienced universally and regardless of gender. In Today’s world women Envy each other as they see themselves as competitors. The lack of sisterhood is not an overnight concept but is a psychological process which reflects in one’s behaviour, mindset and actions.
    There are a handful of women who genuinely encourage other women. The urge to judge the other women, on how she’s dressed, what she decides as her career, her social , cultural choices etc is the root cause of lack of sisterhood. Today we don’t appreciate different thoughts, values, mindset but criticize them for being distinctive than ours.
    The very concept of feminism is based on the values of encouraging and supporting each other. Accepting and appreciating difference and each other’s sucess. This feeling of Envy and lack of sisterhood can be held indirectly responsible for partial failure of feminism these days.
    The present need of the society is to uplift each other, be supportive and encourage each and every women to be her independent self and to help her achieve her true potential.
