SATC and the Awakening of Feministic Powers
For most successful women I know, the real glamour of life isn't about Jimmy Choo shoes, or the complex relationships with the Bigs. It's about achievement in life. It's about change, liberation of mind and personality, and reaching the goals we set for ourselves, no matter how big or small. But it doesn't mean that relationships aren't important, that good looks should be dispensed with because we cut the time of dating; on the contrary, we should be proud of keeping ourselves neat and charming as a display of self-esteem. What's more important is the realization of our feministic powers, passions and pursuits. What fuels us should be the belief that we are as strong as men, and sometimes even more durable and less subject to diseases of stress. There's nothing weird about marrying a man with a lower income than yours; you just need to check out the man's incentive in the first place. There's nothing wrong with the denial of some unfair social stereotype that history has labeled on women.
The awakening has come to dawn upon us with a big help from a TV drama, so how far are we from the fair society where women’s efforts are deemed on a same level with men? How far are we from the new, equalitarian lifestyle, the humanizing of workplace, the end of latent discrimination? The ends are the means, said Gloria Steinem. What we need doesn’t come from nothing. We need to construct it on our own.
