One of the Teachings of this Faith that I was really attracted to is the equality of men and women. When I came across this principle... I said, ‘Yes! This is how it should be!’ This idea that men are breadwinners and women should stay at home and do all the work - it is not fair by all means. Men and women should have equal rights and opportunities in all walks of life. This means that men should share his rights and opportunities with women and vice versa... Abdu’l-Baha says, ‘The world of humanity has two wings—one is women and the other men. Not until both wings are equally developed can the bird fly.’
