A Woman's Worth

What in the world is going on?
I don't mean to be a downer, but I just have to get my thoughts and feelings out there about this particular issue.

How is it that I still live in a world in which women are treated like sexual objects, inferior to men, or even sometimes as mere slaves, existing only to please or serve men?  As an American woman, I have long believed that I am supposed to be treated as the equal to any human being on the face of this planet.  But then things pop up in the news and I am reminded that maybe I am only living a pipe dream.  And truly it leaves me sad and frustrated.  Not just for me, but mainly for the women of the future.  Where are we headed as a society if we don't value women and everything they have to offer?

I have a husband who treats me as the valuable and precious being that I am.  And I want to believe that every woman deserves that, every day.  Not just the lucky few who find real the real men in this world...

But the main thing I see that really gets to me is this:  Why are there so many women who are willing participants in this idea that women should accept any kind of cruddy treatment?!  Every time you hear a story about women being degraded by men, there is almost always a woman who is right there in the middle of it participating just as much as any man in the situation.

Again I say, what in the world is going on here?


  1. I agree. But I don't know the to which you are referring.

  2. I hear you! I don't know why ... isn't is sad.
    My hubby treats me like I am worth something - and I can't imagine living any other way!
    THANK YOU for your comment on the blog today ! Thank you for your support!
    Have a pretty day!

  3. It amazes me how few men treat women well. But it bothers me even more how many women put up with or allow themselves to be treated badly.
    I am like you very blessed to have a great husband who treats me with respect and kindness. All the time.

    I guess we just have to make sure to pass this on to our kids. In hopes there will be some true gentlemen in the next generation. And women who expect to be treated well and with respect.

  4. @Amber- Thanks for getting me in my rant!
    I like your positive take on this and what we can do to influence future generations.
