So, on "Mother's Day", should we thank women for supporting men's rights?
Ahem, I think that's a complicated debate you're starting there Laura.
And I guess we should designate a White History month because twelve months a year aren't enough for some folks. Men were never considered property of their wives. Men's wives were never allowed, by law, to beat their husbands. Women were never allowed to have their husbands imprisoned with little or even no reason. Men were never barred from voting, having a credit card, owning property, pursuing a degree, employment outside a very limited list, equal pay for equal work... .
I would like to thank my dad for believing in all his 9 girls, providing an education and respecting our views while growing up. Even if he still held traditional views, he himself was not a tyrant in our house nor did he make his presence unbearable on us. While living in my dad's house I did not know there were men who looked down on women and treated them badly. Thanks for the legacy you started in our lives and continues to carry to this day. Long live dad!
Wow we used to call them the mukanda girls @ kansenshi chapel they used to sing besutifullly ms them xx
Although this uncertain phase we are going through I take this opportunity to thank so many men in Egypt who are supporting women's rights as an integral part of social justice and equality raised by our revolution.
Afaf, have you seen this video yet? Egyptian men speaking out against sexual harassment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=72RGtkwRMqU#!

This Fathers Day I wish to thank not only my wonderful father, but my all of my uncles, who although coming from a generation of centuries old tradition, have nurtured ny exploration, stood by my decisions in life, andalways endorsed equality of thought, speech, education, respect and freedom for a woman!
What a wonderful idea! Sorry I missed the occasion to share.
Everyone who shows encouragement for others should be honoured and supported. Thumbs up for each one of them.
I luv my dad bec0z he loves and cares for me. I luv him bec0z he is my hero and bec0z he is the only dad I will ever get ♥.
