I WANT THESE SHOES.

Sometimes I struggle with who I am as a soldier, and who I am as a woman.

It’s not like my mother ever told me I couldn’t be a soldier, but I was still exposed to the idea that there are certain things reserved for men, and certain things reserved for women. For example, both my brothers were given more say in our family’s course of action than I was, and my mother also said less than they did. Both Nicolas and Valmur have been protective toward me, deciding there are some things I’m better off not knowing or doing.

One day, my brother admitted to me that generally, it was understood that while women could fight, that was mostly to protect one’s house and one’s honor. Wars and battles, on the other hand, were both waged and won by men. The reasoning was that women had to take care of children who were too young to fight. What’s more, he couldn’t disagree with that idea, because he hated the thought of me losing my life on the battlefield.

Valmur is, for the most part, very supportive of women’s rights, but he has a blind spot when it comes to protecting me. Nicolas says it’s because he cares the most about me, but I think the very reason for his extra care is that I’m a woman. With Nicolas, he sort of has a friendly rivalry going on, but he still sees me as a child, a girl eight years younger who tagged after him and said she was going to marry him when she grew up. He’s had more trouble facing the fact that I’m an adult than anyone else, I think.

But the feeling is mutual. For some reason, I feel more protective of him than anyone else. Maybe it’s because he’s so gentle and doesn’t really like to fight. I don’t know.

I just hope he can keep it together if I get married.

I don’t know if this is supposed to be raising awareness for a charity or something, but I think it does a good job of illustrating just how important education is for women’s rights.
