If you are a woman who puts down other women, shame on you. If you are a woman who is envious of another woman's success but can't pay the price she paid to get to where she is, shame on you. If you are a woman and you are scheming to break up another woman's relationship because you feel she doesn't deserve love, shame on you. If you are a woman who joins men to dispossess a widow of her late husband's properties, shame on you. If you are a woman and all you do is police other women, to judge them and belittle them, you are a shame to womanhood. If you are a woman and you keep seeing other women as competition instead of your sisters, you have failed. If you are a woman and you keep policing other women without offering your support when they truly need it, shame on you. If women keep fighting one another, how can we then collectively break the hold of patriarchy that has kept us subjugated for decades? If you keep joining men to throw out defenseless women when their husbands die, don't forget nothing last forever. If you keep bringing down other women, you will never rise.
Be a different woman. Be your sister's keeper. Be a woman's woman. Life is tough enough for women in this part of the world. Don't add to another woman's pain. Become a balm to soothe her pain. Only then can we rise together. Think about it.
