Opinion: A tribute to the women of our Motherland


Jan Scholtz


There is a woman who is tired of acting weak when she is strong, 
There is a woman who is tired of acting humble, 
There is a woman who is tired of being called an ‘emotional female’
There is a woman who is called ‘unfeminine’ when she competes, 
There is a woman who is tired of being a sex object, 
There is a woman who feels tied down by her children, 
There is a woman who is denied meaningful employment or equal pay, 
There is a woman who takes a step in her own liberation, 

In spite of all, 

She is a woman, a woman she is. 
Created by God, a part of men. 
She is a companion, friend, mother, lover, leader, burden bearer,
She is a nurse, teacher, homemaker.
She is the radiant light that shines in every home.
She keeps the home together. 
She is the incubator of society.
She is a wonderful and blessed creation. 
She is a woman.

This is a tribute to all the women of our motherland. This is to all the women who put their lives on the line and give up their plate for the next person.
