Empowerment has to be gender-neutral. While women empowerment has been a trending subject worldwide, there are countless men who seek similar relief, strength, and motivation. These are men who have been victims of suppression, struggle, and misfortune; looking for an opportunity to rise from the ashes.

Society Mocks At Men Who Look Vulnerable and Weak

Men have always been projected as Herculean meat-balls symbolizing power and strength. Consequently, most patriarchal societies across the globe have mocked men who looked vulnerable and weak. Society expected them to be powerful, dominant, and assertive.

This is exactly the reason why A-list male actors avoid endorsing products that defy their stallion image? Products related to gassy stomach, hair loss, or weak sexual health. On the contrary, they gladly associate themselves with campaigns involving power-bikes, adventures, fitness challenges, sports gears, etc. Consumer products that symbolize adrenaline rush, muscle power, and robustness.

Look Under the Super Hero Cape. They Have a Bleeding Soul.

Look around. How often do you find Iron Man flying over Connaught Place? Neither do you see Captain America fighting at the Syrian Borders? Super Heroes are a myth.

In recent years, the surge in sexual crimes against women has labeled the entire male fraternity as probable sexual predators. Supposedly, all men on the radar are either ogling, staring, or making unprecedented sexual advances. Maybe 5% of these men have demented minds and stricter laws should be enacted to banish them from society.

The other 95% are regular men with regular dreams and regular struggles. They aren’t billboard alpha males with chiseled bodies. They don’t care about superbikes or bungee jumping into some deep ravine.

  • Talented men who never had the financial reserve to push ahead.
  • Persistent dreamers who couldn’t resurrect themselves from multiple failed ventures and bad investments.
  • Men who silently faded away trying to meet social expectations and high peer standards.
  • Men who prioritized their family’s happiness and needs over their own.
  • Men who were victims of domestic pressure and social shaming.

Most of them have unsorted problems and unfulfilled aspirations. They aren’t Greek Gods.

Men or Women – Empowerment is all about extending our support and enabling these wretched souls to stand up. Irrespective of their gender.
