Speech on Women in Society Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen, First of all I would like to start off with a joke, from the point of view of a man, about driving. “Driving to the office this morning on the motorway, I looked over to my left and there was a woman in a brand new Jaguar doing 90mph with her face up next to her rear-view mirror putting on her eyeliner. I looked away for a couple of seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane, still working on that make-up. It scared me so badly; I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the donut out of my other hand. In all the confusion of trying to straighten out the car using my knees against the steering wheel, it knocked the mobile phone away from my ear which fell into the coffee between my legs, splashed and burned big Jim and the twins, causing me to scream, which made me drop the cigarette out of my mouth, ruined the damn phone and disconnected an important call.

For example: “Moses wandered in the desert for 40 years. He wouldn’t ask for directions. A man would rather be burnt at the stake than admit to a woman that he’s lost.” In my view, a woman’s place is where she is most effective, where she is most needed. It is a woman’s decision where she wants to be, not a man’s. Women have a lot more to offer than just being at home. I believe than men and women are equal. Women may even be better, but we’ll never know if we can’t break free from the male chauvinist pigs of our time. Men have been suppressing women and their views for hundreds of years. Men have ruled over women for far too long. I say: it’s our turn!
