The first time Dorothy slapped her husband across his face, it was the beginning of a silent war and the end of another.


Dorothy slapped her husband, Timothy and their only daughter, Tina watched disconsolately. It was the first time she watched her Father and Mother sleep in separate rooms.


Timothy slept uncomfortably on the hard Couch in the sitting room, while Dorothy locked up herself in their bedroom, laying Tina by her side. The next morning, she moved out of the house and moved into a fresh new apartment of hers.


Miss Michaels, who recently got out of her 25-year old union with her Husband smiled as she worked on her Computer, offering ever student their fate of 'F' marks, like it was their birthright.


She loved her family. Her first son, Benson, who was now a Reverend in the Cleft For Me Methodist Church had proffered and prodded her severely to return to her Husband, but Miss Michaels loved something more than family. She loved her rights.


Ruth Willis was the average educated woman, who worked as a self-employed business woman in her Automobile shop. She was making enough money to feed her home, even when her Husband was copious enough financially to feed nations. She could talk and move mountains and her walk was never mere, as she was a traveller of many places.


It only took a few more months when the newsflash shook the Town that the bill of Gender Equality had been passed and it was now an actual law. A lot of women, including Dorothy, Miss Michaels and Ruth Willis celebrated their victory, throwing parties and talking endless about the success of the law.


"It is indeed a great thing. Now, I will study whatever course I wish to study in the university." Adora had said, while she enrolled to sit for the upcoming national examinations.

"Maybe I will be a Doctor after all!" Another young lady blurted out, making Adora nod her head rather vehemently.


Many ladies who were pressurised by their Camaraderie and Mothers to pick a date for their wedding or a dress for their special day were colonised to travel abroad and grasp their educational degrees, even if it cost them a lifetime. They didn't seem to mind anymore.


The celebration shook the Town, women, ladies and girls doing the impossible by writing articles on newspapers, magazines and creating moral stories, while others spread their views in verbatim via television shows.


It was an eye-opener enlightenment for all and nothing was going to remain the same in a very long time.

I guess so. It's a few steps from becoming a law here, in Nigeria.
Honestly, I'm a Feminist but the wrong doings of Gender Equality (such as, hitting a man) is totally outlandish. I'm against such and equally against Gender Discrimination as well.
I hope you totally get my point!
Thanks for reading and commenting regardless.
