International Women`s Day - Art Lounge March 10
Thanks to MFL I knew about this event. I like the combination of Art, discussion and chilling to music.
I believe that even though the status of the Lebanese woman has gone a long shot for the past years in Lebanon and on several basis, such as politics, high position at work, salaries, etc... Nevertheless I still think that there are still some stuff that need to be accomplished. It is still a patririarchal society, and not just in Lebanon, even in countries such as the U.S.
On that note, I need to specify that I am no feminist, but I am definitely pro-rights, human rights, prisoner rights, women rights, and children rights. More over, I don't think men and women are absolutely equal, orelse, we wouldn't have two genders. However I believe that a job should not be given to someone because she is a woman, or he is a man, but for their qualifications and personalities. Equal opportunities is the key and to never judge a person's position or job based on gender, but for how competant they are.
