There is nothing beautiful than a young woman who is in control of her life and has a burning desire to be successful and independent. I'm talking about a smart woman who is humble, loving and ambitious. The latter attributes transcend physical beauty. This is evident in beautiful women who only end up on the receiving end from other men or just end up being ushers or half naked objects at car washes. It cannot be true that women were only created to be entertaining visuals for men.
The courtship between men and women has evolved to a greater extent. Nowadays men do not only look at the physical features of a woman but also the nature of her brain, character and heart. Men look at women as if they're analyzing the viability of a business venture. Men look at sustainability, profitability and growth prospects of a woman. Unfortunately this is the reality that women are facing nowadays. However, I think it is a positive evolution because it encourages women to work hard and achieve better things in their lives.
The practical reality is that everyone wants someone who they can survive with in this competitive world without feeling em-burdened. It is even said that the best way to free a woman from all forms of social oppressions is to give her financial freedom. When a woman has achieved financial emancipation she walks tall, knows her value and never settle for anything less. She is quick to react to any form of abuse accordingly. The thing is, I believe in women because I'm a product of a woman and I've seen women sustain and build strong families as well as characters in men.
If women can pursue excellence and work hard then prostitution will only be found in the dictionary of perverts. Women abuse will be history we read in books. Men will in turn work even harder to compete against women or to meet the standards. As a result the world will become a better place characterized by hard working people and few domestic violence cases. To some extent, with my leap of faith, I believe that a better world is possible.
I say the best point of departure for moving towards a better world is women. This is not to imply that men cannot create a better world, but to stress that women serve the best incentive for men to work hard and achieve. If a man wants a woman he knows that somehow he has to be financially better than her – at least that’s what the society taught us. Imagine a man who wants to date or marry Khanyi Dhlomo( CEO of Ndalo Luxury Ventures); he will have to work very hard so he can meet the standard. We need more Khanyi Dhlomos in the world. I urge all my sisters out there to find good role models and stop seeing themselves as objects or access cards to another man's success. I believe in the power of women to make a change. That change starts with women. Women can save the world
