For every strong woman tired of faking weakness, there is a weak man tired of faking strength.

For every woman tired of faking "foolishness", there is a man tired of having to act as a "model of wisdom".

For each woman tired of being labeled as an "emotional female", there is a man who has been denied the right to cry and be sensitive.

For every sportswoman whose femininity is questioned, there is a man forced to compete in order to give testimony of his virility.

For every woman tired of being considered a sexual object, there is a man concerned about his sexual performance.

For every woman who has not had access to a dignified salary, there is a man forced to bear the responsibility of another human being.

For every woman who ignores the "secrets of car mechanics", there is a man who doesn't know how to "boil an egg".

The human race is a two-winged bird.  Unless both wings are equally developed, the human race will not be able to fly.

"Now more than ever, the cause of women is the cause of mankind."
