Equality is a right not luxury: Happy International Women’s Day

It is no secret that we live in a patriarchal society. Every society needs to have a set pattern and patriarchy is just one of them. The real problem is when these very men at the top underestimate or rather deny basic human rights of women. Families need to instigate in the minds of young generation, especially boys that women are not subordinates but equals. Like they say charity begins at home.
