If you thought that women's liberation has reached its zenith, think again. Though many women in progressive societies enjoy some liberty, several thousands of them are suppressed and tortured under the garb of morality.

Gender discrimination exists at all levels. At the workplace, where gender inequalities are brushed under the carpet, women workers are often subjected to sexual objectification, harassment, and molestation. Women employees are discouraged from seeking higher positions in management, as they are deemed as liabilities. Workplace surveys report that women receive lower wages than their male counterparts.

A society that strangulates the woman that raises her voice will forever remain backward and regressive. New thoughts, ideas, and philosophies will fail to take root within the constricted walls of dominance. Perverted ideals and sexism are often the cause of women's subjugation.

Help women fight their cause by recognizing them as human beings. Respect your women colleagues, friends, and family members. Inspire women to take on the mantle of women's liberation.
