My dear brother
Today’s women are different from yesterday’s women
You must change your old ideas

Today’s women are powerful and you can’t play with us
We do not consider men as like God
You should trust us

Today’s women are educated
We’re skilled in technology
We are doctors and we can treat you now!

It is time to respect us
Let go of your grandfather’s and father’s ways
Those days are over

You need to change your ideas
Like me, today’s women are powerful
Dear brother, you should accept this
