What is it like to be a female police officer? Definitely, it is extremely challenging work wise.

After all, you are supposed to chase the criminals, counsel the victims, and arrest horrendous law offenders. At that, being a woman, one has to face the common sexist assumptions made by male officers.

Humans of New York published the story of a female officer from Argentina who shared her plight in one line saying, “Even if we have equal rank, a man always tries to take charge of the situation.”

Sigh. Chauvinism is everywhere, irrespective of which side of the border you are standing. Women, again, irrespective of the job-type, are considered less competent than the men. Sadly, even after they do something outstanding to prove their worthiness.

The comments under this picture showed tremendous support of people from around the world. Some of the best comments say:

I love this photograph; the heart bracelet and the gun in her holster are powerful. The parallelism between the symbols is beautiful.

Which is why we say women’s rights are human rights. To be seen as equal….is that too much to ask?

A woman will always have to work twice as hard to get half as far as a man in this world.

Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.

Love the nails, the bracelet, and the readiness. Damn, girl.
