Girls and boys are equal in my eyes.

But in a world that prefers boys, I prefer to have girls.

There are many reasons for people to prefer boys, but three main ones are based on superstition, prejudice, injustice:

Superstition: Having people to do the ancestor worship.

Prejudice: Descendants to preserve the name of the family.

Injustice: Only men can give family names to their children. Today, all human beings can legally change their names at the court of justice.

They pity for me because I have no sons to worship my ancestors and my Le family name is ended. They are too blind to know that no Prophets preserve Their family names and They all prohibit worship except the worship of God.

I think that I will maintain my preference for girls until when women can enjoy complete dignity and equality in all communities.

 Abdul-Baha says:

 “The girl’s education is of more importance today than the boy’s, for she is the mother of the future race. It is the duty of all to look after the children. Those without children should, if possible, make themselves responsible for the education of a child.”

(Abdu’l-Baha, Abdu’l-Baha in London, p. 91)
