For Every Woman …. and Every Man

By Nancy R. Smith

For every woman who is tired of acting weak when she knows she is strong,

There is a man who is tired of appearing strong when he feels vulnerable.

 

For every woman who is tired of acting dumb,

There is a man who is burdened with the constant expectation of “knowing everything.”

 

For every woman who is tired of being called “an emotional female”

There is a man who is denied the right to weep and be gentle.

 

For every woman who feels “tied down” by her children,

There is a man who is denied the full pleasure of parenthood.

 

For every woman who is denied meaningful employment and equal pay,

There is a man who must bear full financial responsibility for another human being.

 

For every woman who was not taught the intricacies of an automobile,

There is a man who was not taught the satisfaction of cooking.

 

For every woman who takes a step toward her own liberation,

There is a man who finds that the way to freedom has been made a little easier.
