This thought has been crossing my mind since the past few days so I thought that i should take your opinions on this. We often say that educate women, that will empower them and all that. Personally speaking although I know what is right for me and I am educated, I still do not feel empowered enough to voice out my opinions in front of my parents and at the end have to give into their views if any such situation arises. This made me question the fact that though I am educated what is it that is preventing me from becoming empowered? WHy is there such a dichotomy between these two although in theory one should naturally follow the other?
