Not All Women Want the Same

Para leer en español, presiona aquí:No todas las mujeres aspiramos a lo mismo

By Aracely Argueta

Today, women continue to fight for gender equality, better working conditions, fair salaries, and the recognition of our ability to lead a home, a company, and an entire country.

This March 8, on the celebration of International Women’s Day, we ask that our rights not be violated. We want to live without fear and with the freedom of choice. 

 Beyond what we demand from others, we must ask, are we, as women, respecting each other’s decisions? Not all women aspire the same. Is that so difficult to understand? Some women feel fulfilled being mothers, while others don’t. Women’s fulfillment can come from being entrepreneurs, single, traveling the world, or obtaining multiple college degrees. Fulfillment, success, and happiness are individual goals. A woman is no less a woman for wanting to stay at home taking care of her children while others work to pay bills.

Sometimes, it is women who don’t respect each other’s choices. Some women question the value of other women all the time, like when giving birth to a baby, judging if one gave birth naturally or with a C-section. We must be consistent with what we demand. To do so, we must respect and show solidarity. If we demand respect, we must also respect ourselves. We should learn to stop comparing ourselves to others, as that is a synonym for lacking self-confidence. We must understand that when one of us breaks the patterns that society demands, we are all moving forward and can only collectively build a path toward the equality we seek.

Every woman can make her own decisions and should feel fulfilled and free without being called selfish for choosing herself first. What characterizes us women is our strength, courage, and the passion with which we do things. When we join forces, we are unstoppable! So be proud of who you are, continue to inspire, reinvent yourself, stay away from places that no longer make you happy, stay away from people who don’t recognize your value, and support other women in your life.

Being a woman means playing endless roles; it represents courage and determination. It often means reinventing yourself, fighting with yourself, and facing your fears. The power of a woman is her essence, so remember how powerful you are!
