We live in a very sexist world that tells womenthat they cannot be most things and will usually use women’s bodies to sell products and services that are not even relatedto women. It is not a rare sight to see half dressed women spread across a car in an effort to sell a car or half-dressed or even completely nude women in newspapers modeling. The world tells young girls that if they do not have the body the media portrays as the perfect body, they are nothing and that they are worthless. As women grow up, they are simply seen as cooks and baby making machines. A woman who chooses not to have a child and pursue her career instead is considered somehow “less” of a woman. The fear factor is that in many countries, women are not even allowed to do certain things and in some cases, they will only be allowed to do things if they have prior permission from their husbands. Bringing a daughter in to a world that thinks along these lines is a scary thing and a massive responsibility because you and you alone will be responsible for empowering her and teaching her to ignore the media and society.
Buy her gifts that will empower her
It is important that as a parent, you are careful about the gifts that you buy her. Most of the gifts and clothes available in the market for girls and women today are sexist and disgusting and give out a very strong message. As an example, the “girl’s” gifts in the toy store will be play kitchens or scantily dressed dolls which give out the message that this is what they should be. Instead, take your child to a Hong Kong women sportswear online and have her pick out a sporting outfit for herself to show her that she can be a sportswoman if that’s what she wants.
You can even buy le coq sportif shoes in HK for her which is something that is usually bought for boys and men because they are the ones that are encouraged in to sports and physical activity.
Show her videos of women who have been successful in sports and other activities that the world deems suitable only for men. Show her successful scientists, and successful astronauts that are women in a bit to encourage her to choose her future based on her love and passion instead of what the world tells her she needs to do or be.
