Don't Call Them Devi
One of my pet peeves, when it comes to women empowerment is the whole idea that dubs women as 'devi' or a superhuman or some sort of a divine blessing for the mankind (man being the operative word). We put women on a precarious pedestal, and expect them to stay there. We take away their right to make mistakes, to express emotions, to be angry, disappointed, irresponsible, even evil. Women are forced to live up to a facade of divine perfection to alleviate the society's guilt and allow it to not treat women as humans. A whole lot of well-meaning people fall into the reductive, lazy and problematic 'Aurat Devi hai' trap because that is just how the social conditioning works.
The thing is Aurat would be happy if you simply treated her as a functioning human, allowed her flaws, empathized with her, listened to her and were willing to look past her gender not just when seeking accountability, but also when revising her pay, according her dignity and dealing with her mess. Respect is a complicated idea, and just calling her Devi ain't it. It is not that simple, and it is definitely not that easy.
