I watched a documentary film on Lady Gaga. In the film very briefly she mentions that when she has had huge successes in her career her boyfriend have abandoned her. As if they are threatened by a strong female. My question is why would that even matter and why should it?! If you truly love someone that deeply wouldn’t you want to celebrate their success?
I am a movie buff and I will admit I pay attention to that kind of stuff. There is absolutely no way that you can deny that men in Hollywood get paid more than women do. It’s been a never ending battle and it rages on to this day. What we need is more powerful men throwing their support behind women.
I’ve seen it first hand in my job field. I have witnessed the men getting paid more than women for the same job. I know that it happens. We as women can not be ignorant to it happening. Now more than ever we need to stand together for our rights.
It’s up to us as women to come together and support each other. It’s up to the men in the world to say hey you know what women can be powerful and we will stand behind them. We missed our chance with Hillary but one day we will have a woman in power. This is the year of women and we need to make sure that our voices are heard. We need to make sure that our mark is left.
There is no reason that women being powerful should be a threat. Just because a woman holds the same power position as a man doesn’t mean that she is any less capable of it. We should be supporting each other and not tearing each other down. The only way as a society that we are going to progress is by getting rid of the hatred and everything that comes along with it.
