“Dear Dad, I’m Going To Be Called A Whore.” Daughter’s Words Are Moving Millions… But…

What if our future children could talk to us and tell us what will happen to them in the future? What if daughters tell their dad the dangers of being born a girl? That is exactly the context of this very moving ad campaign produced by the Norwegian-based organization CARE. CARE advocates for women’s rights and campaigns against violence against women.

In this video, a daughter warns her father about boys and the dangers of being born a girl. The video speaks of the realities of being a female. Whether as a child, adolescent and even as an adult, females are very prone to violence. Women may recall enduring “harmless cat-calls” and “sexual innuendos just for fun”. Some may not fare as lucky and may be victims of rape and domestic violence.

Or for guys to think it is okay to shove their hands into a girl’s privates because they were made to believe girls are whores, made to be men’s pleasure things? What if all those harmless things we let slip by everyday, becomes the reason for domestic violence?

 As parents, we can do something about it. We should raise our children accordingly. We must raise sons who respect girls. We must teach them that name-calling and violence are not the way to treat anyone. We should also raise our daughters to be women worthy of a man’s respect and love. All the negative things happening around us are due to our dwindling morals as a society. Let us uphold a life that respect and care for one another.

And perhaps these lines won’t be so heartbreaking at all, “But dear daddy, I will be born a girl. And please do everything you can so that won’t stay the greatest danger of all
