Today is the International Women’s Day, an occasion to talk about lebanese women abroad and women who wanted to go abroad for education or work purposes. How many times have you heard parents, relatives and even friends saying “You are a woman, you are not obliged to go abroad or you don’t have to”? Or “Marry him and go both live abroad”. Didn’t you feel sometimes that you want to go abroad continue your education or work like your male friends?
I am writing today to salute the lebanese women who went abroad for education and for work. I salute them because they knew how to escape our society’s complexity. But don’t think that I am attacking women who stayed here…everyone can decide his life, and I am talking about abroad women because of the blog’s theme. I want to say to all women : grow open mindedness in your children heads and ways of thinking, don’t raise them with the same complexes that we had.
Go abroad, learn, work and come back so we can raise together and open minded generation. It’s true that today a lot of women are going abroad but we are far away from reassign each woman’s dream
Why going abroad is only for men? Why does he have to see, experience and work in environments that you can’t reach?
Women, liberty all the way…but attention liberty equals responsability
