A Solidarity Movement for Gender Equality
When I checked my Facebook this morning I saw a friend of mine had shared the #HeForShe page with Bhutanese man holding the pledge card supporting this movement. I instantly thought do we have gender equality problem in Bhutan as we are Buddhist we give equal rights in everything we do. I also believe that by and large we give more respect and love to women in Bhutan than anywhere else in the world. Our government obviously need to do more to have women in high offices so that the ratio to men and women is brought closer in the running of our country.
I will always support and pledge that men and women should have equal rights no matter what. Sadly there are still countries around the world where women are treated so badly and it is those countries that we should turn our attention to. For humanity’s sake we simply cannot stand by and let this go on. Every one of us has the responsibility to raise awareness in our neighborhood which will have the ripple effect and hopefully we will educate others in the process.
Pledge your support today on #HeForShe http://www.heforshe.org/#take-action and commit to action against gender discrimination.
