Our Girls

Mir Jannatul Ferdous
Our Girls

It’s been awhile since I have been watching the amazing growth of girls and young women of our country in every corner of the land, from remote villages to the big cities. When I see a young woman profess an independent outlook, whether she is living in a city or small town or even in a remote village, that spirit lights up my hope for a better tomorrow.

Today, our girls and young women are showing tremendous interest and effort to gain knowledge and getting empowered to decide the course of their lives and professions, and realise their fullest potentials. It is undeniable that in every spheres of our society they are standing equal to boys and men, proving their ability to change the world. During these days of untold restlessness and frustration, our young women are lighting up our hope by moving forward with great confidence to become educated and live up to their dreams.

With steady increase in the number of educated and also top-ranked women at national level, they are achieving respect and recognition, which are eventually enriching them with knowledge and wisdom to become resourceful citizens. Today, our women are successfully taking up diverse professions to prove that they are not second to none in any respect. While doing so, they also take care to strike a balance between their commitment to their profession as well as their home and family. They are playing multiple roles with harmony and ease.

Alongside the immense growth of girls’ education and empowerment, unfortunately, many of them face exploitation and harassment, which can be emotional and physical. They are often subjected to abuse and other forms of physical and mental torture. This kind of violence can be stopped only by changes in attitude regarding women in our society, and by treating our girls with proper dignity, fairness and equality. It is time to awaken our social reformers.

Remember, if you have a target, a plan to reach it, a scheduled time, I believe you will achieve it. You should be flexible to review your goals from time to time and make changes as your situation requires. Rigidity will be destructive. Life passes through many ups and downs. Be steady and look well ahead and be careful in your risk analysis. Wish you the best of luck!
