Women of Today
Raising children, caring for the house,
Serving elders, respecting her spouse.
The four walls of the house, her only place to stay
That's how women lived, ages and ages away.
"Educate your girl, but only till a certain age,
Then get her married off, at a respectable place.
Give her a mighty dowry, or she'll have to grieve"
A few decades ago, that's how women were perceived.
Fulfilling all aspirations, reaching for the sky
Living a life of dignity, her head held high.
Fighting for her rights, nothing stops her way,
These are the brave and courageous 'Women of Today'.
You may try to suppress her, just like before
But now she's a lioness, who knows how to roar.
