Women's Oppression

Women, feeling oppressed and trapped, often times long for independence and freedom.
Independence and freedom are the driving force for a woman longing to experience it.
A woman who is feeling loneliness and treated like a child wants to escape from the oppression.
The consequences of one's action is not a concern when a woman fights for what she believes in.
