The mother, the wife, the professional, the artist, the nun, the soldier and the survivor .

This is a great day, a beautiful day, a day where we should celebrate beauty and femininity .
Instead, we find talks about violence against women and women rights on every the blog, website and social media wall.

Cheer up ladies, wear your most wonderful big smile, life is beautiful and not all men are ugly and jerks .
Let us not let our new generation of young beautiful girls have a bad and pessimistic idea about men.
Instead, we should teach them how to protect themselves from jerks, and how to be good mothers and make them able to raise real men from their boy kids.

I want to clear up an important point, not only Lebanese men are abusive. Please let this be clear in everyone’s mind. Western men could also be abusive, we see every day beautiful women getting killed by the man who loved them and who they loved.
The only difference is that the good men in the West, either Europe or America, are not ashamed to show their strong support for women, in any way, in every way.

They are even ready to wear High heels and red lipstick. Yes, you read well, it is not a typo.
In USA they hold events where the men have a walk wearing high heels to show the support for the women. They call it “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes”.

Each year, an ever-increasing number of men, women and their families are joining the award-winning “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes”: The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence. “A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” Event is a playful opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community about the serious causes, effects and remediation to men’s sexualized violence against women.

There is an old saying: “You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.” “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. It’s not easy walking in these shoes, but it’s fun and it gets the community to talk about something that’s really difficult to talk about: gender relations and men’s sexual violence against women.
So those men will walk the talk.

The good news is that Lebanese men did it as well. Samah al-Hakim, Sammar al-Hitti and Wajid al-Hitti wore the high heels to show respect for women just few days before International Women’s Day. The men grabbed the attention of the mall visitors who appreciated the act and began taking photos of them. Not a big event, but a huge step forward for Oriental men. We are proud of you brothers !!! Watch video

The other new trend came up from Europe, “ Mettez du rouge” , where men will wear red lipstick and post their photos on the wall of any social media they have. So many men joined the event, including celebrities, journalists actors and businessman.
You might think how would a man help a woman if he acts like a gay ??

Again, cheer up wonderful ladies in my great country and in the whole world. Never forget that you are the most wonderful creature God created, and every and each one of you is in some way a gorgeous lady.
Life is beautiful, men are good , let us work on empowering women to have the right to live decently, and raise awareness among men to let them know that the main task of a real man is to protect his lady.
