Today is Woman’s Day and it is time to celebrate the very womanhood. I am a girl, though a little tomboyish and I am proud of it. But, I regret that women have still not received the position they deserve even in the 21st century. Some years back, I was interviewing several couples regarding giving women the credit due to them. One man asked me what is the point in writing about it. He also asked me if the change will come. It was evening and the man was not doing anything. Thus, he could speak to me. On the other hand, his working wife was doing all the housework at that time and was hesitating to speak to me. There will never be any change until men stop having double standards.
