The War on Womanhood

Updated: 3 days ago



Throughout history, the concept of womanhood has often been a battlefield, as women have been subjected to various forms of oppression, discrimination, and subjugation. Indeed, the struggle for women's power has been an ongoing saga from ancient civilizations to modern societies. However, we must remember that God cares about His daughters and trusts us with much, especially now.


What we are seeing now in culture is a knee-jerk reaction to the suppression and mistreatment of women. I am referring to the videos on TikTok and other platforms where women teach other women how to finesse men. To me, it's giving low budget, problematic, low-hanging fruit mentality. Now, before you give me a hard time, hear me out.


In no way am I excusing the historical treatment of women from men. In fact, they helped to create some of the social problems we are seeing now, but women are furthering them. We are witnessing womanhood in crisis; however, we've been in crisis for quite some time.

When Eve ate the apple, she slipped out of her soft girl era, and we can trace the hemorrhaging of womanhood back to the garden. Yet, despite her error, God still trusted women to get the job done when men couldn't.


Consider Deborah, who had enough vision to serve as a judge in Israel.


What about Jael, who killed an enemy by driving the peg through his skull?


How about Esther, who secured the future of the Jews?


We definitely can't forget Mary, the mother of Jesus, who was courageous enough to carry the Messiah.


I remind you of these women because they are a few of the greats in the Bible. On deeper levels, I remind you of them to encourage you to consider how far we've moved away from our power as women.


When I think about the current cultural state of women, Ciara's "Like A Boy" and Beyoncé's "If I Were A Boy" come to mind. (Of course, this song was before Bey went rogue and became a witch.) But you get the point I'm trying to make, right?


Long story short, women have moved out of our rightful positioning and have chosen to bend ourselves to become male-like, though we could never be them--and we shouldn't want to. However, the narrative culture and the enemy are pushing is encouraging women to be less feminine and stop believing in the power and protection of family, which forces us out of alignment with God and ourselves.


What we are seeing here is backlash from the garden. I'm not talking about Eve eating the fruit; I'm referring to the consequence that God gave the serpent:

And I will put enmity (open hostility) Between you and the woman, and between your seed (offspring) and her Seed; He shall [fatally] bruise your head, And you shall [only] bruise His heel.

If I were an enemy of women, I, too, would convince us to stay in survival mode by shifting us into the masculine realm. If I were an enemy of women, I would encourage us to pretend that we no longer need men in society. If I were an enemy of women, I would brainwash us to believe that being a boss chic, video vixen, and "Every Woman" (in my Whitney Houston voice) is far greater than anything else because in doing so, our seed would never have the opportunity to bruise its head fatally.


Let us find the courage and strength to rise above the war on womanhood and take our rightful place as daughters and the crown of men.
