Is Chivalry Dead


Taking up Reena’s Exploration Challenge #77
by Reena Saxena to write based on above image. This is my fictional contribution. Thanks for the mind prompt Reena.

Is chivalry dead.

As fair maidens venture forth, searching for the Holy Grail of gender equality.

Is chivalry dead.

As women storm the bastions of male power and aggression.

Is chivalry dead.

As women shield themselves from sexual predators

Is chivalry dead.

As women armour themselves against servitude in foreign lands.

Is chivalry dead.

No.

Chivalry is alive.

Turned into mutual respect.

The battle is not yet won.

But the tide has turned.

Men and women marching together.

Under one flag.

Today, March 8, is International Woman’s Day. This is one mans hope for the future.

  1. Loving the idea of chivalry being alive in mutual respect and the powerful image of the turning tide. I’m glad you wrote and shared this poem, I found it quite moving.
