It’s been done by the women in academics

July 23, 2013


To teach…


To train a young and impressionable mind.

A mind eager to learn, and to yield respect to the teacher in the process.

To serve the cause of the young and women both.


Women in academics, pre-school, school and college

Women who worked without recognition,  by the nation and other women.

Only for love and sometimes their need for a job.


This is where it begins, in a young mind

Kids learn to accept their authority and unconditionally value their role

Respect, call them Madam without a sting in their voice


First step for a future adult, male or female

Unaware of lofty issues related to gender and power

Sans the burden of social roles, perceived or assumed


To secure a place of honour in that unconscious

And make it easy for the child to to accept women as decision makers

Co-workers and bosses, peers and rivals


First revolution happened in education

It was a female teacher, a working woman, often the role model

Before professors, lawyers, politicians, CEOs and managers


These are the pioneers; they bring home the acceptance

Of women’s ability to lead, steer and guide (and to make the right choice- for them and for the others)

And all who get called ma’ams without asking for it, have their teachers to thank for that
