First thing..I am a Feminist but that doesn't mean that I am treating women as the victim. I am looking towards the empowerment of women and when I say I am feminist...it doesn't mean that I am standing against them.I clearly understand that for every 10men at the top, there are 100more men at the bottoms.
The next thing that we need to consider is the natural difference men and women. 1.According to the body framework and physiological capacity of a woman it is such that she can not stand for as long as a man can. Ever seen a man getting breathless, nauseate, vomit or faint in a crowded bus on usual basis? No? But a woman does, because she is more delicate and sensitive to the physical environment than a man. And this sensitivity does not imply a “weakness” but her very being, The Womanhood. And, there is no sneaking away from this natural fact. A woman can willingly be iron-minded but not iron-fisted. The optimum time-period for standing at a stretch comfortably is much less for a woman than for a man. 2.Every woman of the reproductive age group (14-45 years of age) spends 5 days per month in their menstrual cycle. No matter, a man can can never understand the amount of distress and pain a woman passes through during this period. To say the least, the pain due to a broken leg would be less than what some women suffer from during this natural phase. Now imagine having to keep standing with a broken leg! And, to add to it, a giant man crushing the feet and least concerned to apologize for the same! Thanks to the male-driven and male-oriented social and official norms, this period requiring rest is not even considered for a medical leave. And yes, they travel standing in the buses with the least physical ability during this period. 3.A similar state of affairs go for a pregnant woman. There is a period of almost 5 months before she appears to be evidently pregnant with a protruding belly. Fatigue, malaise and fainting are more common in these early months of hidden pregnancy than the ones that get evident later, when a few decent men might offer the lady a seat out of courtesy or chivalry.
So yes! There must be ladies’ seat, where these categories of women can righteously comfort themselves without having to announce to the world in distress, “we need one!” What I am supporting is a much required basic facility, not the privilege, to make a woman’s journey safe and concordant with her physiological needs. Those who consider it a “privilege” must understand what she might be paying to avail this “privilege” can never even be afforded by a man. So a flat refusal and ardent argument on being asked to vacate a ladies’ seat would be just another hollow show of male chauvinism. So hold it!
