How Women Are Leading From The Front

Hey Everyone,

How are you people doing?  As for me,I’m fine now, the weather is still chilling in our city but the atmosphere in our country is not going well at all. I think not much is hidden about it as all you must be aware of the state of our country (if you have a habit of reading the newspaper or the e news) and would know-how India is going through a tough time these days. We Indians who set an example on how to remain united despite the differences in our lives, religions, languages, and culture. We possess different social, economic, geographical conditions.

We have been seeing since our childhoods how people from all caste live together without any problems. We all are either Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, Christians or Parsis, all have been celebrating their festivals together, remaining united in all our happiness and sorrow.

Our nation has been known for it’s democracy. It was a matter o,f pride for everyone being the world’s largest democracy but these days that very democracy and secularism stands threatened. The world is seeing how people of our country protesting against a dangerous act known as C.A.A(Citizen Amendment Act) which was recently passed by the government. There have widespread protests across the country because this act is based on a religious basis that our constitution doesn’t allow. This new amendment in the Citizenship Act discriminates against Muslims and violates the right to equality enshrined in the Constitution of the country.

In the last few weeks, we have seen countless protests against this act some of which were brutally crushed by the police in different states. They suppressed all the protesters- men, women, students even detained kids and brutally beat them. Some of died, many injured. We all are restless, feeling unsafe in our own country but it’s said that there is always some positivity in all negative situations. Surprisingly, we have witnessed the power of women in these dark and tense circumstances. When all protests were being savagely crushed by the police and the government, then something unexpected happened. Some women in a small area in southeast Delhi called Shaheen Bagh took this march in their hands and refused to sleep or go home for protecting their country’s constitution. Aren’t you surprised? Yes, it’s true, these women are of all ages, from little girls, young, middle-aged to old women. Some are among them are even in their 90s. These are not only Muslims, but from all religions. By this time their numbers have increased, reaching about thousands. These women became the inspiration for others and gradually such kinds of protests began all over the country where women have been leading from the front in a way never seen before. From students to housewives, each and everyone is out on the streets raising their voices against CAA and NRC.

The past few years have witnessed women across the globe taking to the streets, raising their voices against all kinds of evils. The #MeToo movement is something that totally upset the scenario of showbiz especially. Argentina, France, Turkey and so many other countries have seen recent uprisings led by women. The women in Shaheen Bagh make us realise how this law can affect even the most unaffected of us- these women have throughout their marital lives been housewives who are least engaged in politics, lawmaking and other big shot things. Yet they are out there, letting the world know that they are unhappy, they feel betrayed because this no longer feels like the good old India they have lived in all their lives.

They have inspired others to do their bit but the most unfortunate part is that those who must listen have turned a deaf ear towards all of us. It’s a shame that those who were elected by the people are no longer interested in serving them. Through fake news, social media and other unfair means, they are busy spreading hatred and contempt even among the common citizens, especially those who are most vulnerable.

Even though my blog isn’t about the current affairs or politics, it is about women and hence it’s my duty to give a shoutout to these female led protests that in the long run might just be the saviour of our constitution

Coming to my outfit:

As you all know, animal prints were ruling the fashion market in 2019 and let’s just say they are not going anywhere this year too. The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in a leopard print skirt a couple of days back and we are sold! I’ve ad bits and pieces of leopard print in my closet over the years but never owned a snakeprint. So, when I saw this snakeprint biker jacket on Femme Luxe, I thought this was the perfect time to give it a try (got this a couple of months back). I ordered it in my usual size 10 but it turned out to be slightly oversized which is why I wasn’t sure if I should wear it. However, turns out you don’t always need to ‘wear’ jackets to wear them. I decided to wear all tight fitting clothes and drape the jacket over my shoulders to get a slouchy yet form fitting look. And I loved how this turned out. This is a nice quality biker jacket with an understated print which everyone can wear. I added a pop of colour with my orange ankle boots to complete the outfit. What do you think?

    We are certainly living in some tumultuous times and it seems every country is going through some sort of turmoil of their own. Sadly there seem to be more threats to democracy everywhere so it’s really inspiring to hear about these women who are taking a stand against CAA and NRC in India. May they have the strength and fortitude to emerge victorious in their admirable fight.

    Time has changed so much! In the past women didn’t have all of the rights that today seem something obvious. Those women needed to fight for their freedom, independence and rights. Now, we need to take an example from them and do the same.
    Have a nice day,

      Agree with you, In India, you can see it almost everywhere. These women are of all ages, from little girls, young, middle-aged to old women.

    Yes it is great that in so many ways women are leading the way. But the sad part is the mind blowing sense of unrest all across the globe. It seems no country is not seeing anger and unrest. And it is happening at the same time. Not sure what is going on but I think some of it has to do with a shifting workplace and how so many jobs are being lost and people are looking at uncertain futures.

    On the upside you look great, love this jacket!

      Thanks, honey, you are right that the sense of unrest all across the globe these days especially in Asian countries. The economic condition in our country has become poor and the government is busy dividing the people by these black acts. I’m really sad but still hopeful. Thanks again.
