“Social progress can be measured by the social position of the female sex.” Karl Marx
If we have a white wall that needs maintenance then repainting this wall is not a problem. However, if our wall has holes and has not been through the process of maintenance, then it should not be painted white just for our convenience.
There are holes that exist and holes that we create. There are holes which exist and we try to cover and there are holes that we create so that we conceal afterwards. This is an eternal process both on individual and societal basis. Society is composed of rules, rituals and traditions that determine what ought to be considered normal. When an individual is born into this system s/he plant and reap all that he is able to. Yet he must also fight against those who create these holes and those who cover them up.
