Things she is tired of hearing
We live in the 21st century where a key value is taught in schools and that is of Gender equality. But the sad part is that we have seriously struggled to give HER the equal status she deserves. There is always a “But she is a woman lingering somewhere in our minds.”
Let’s take a look at some of the frustrations a woman has to deal with on a constant basis:
The perception that she dresses to be pleasing to a man’s eye:
Well this is the most encountered one. If she takes an extra effort to look good, its assumed that she has done it to impress some guy who is around her.
No, this is pretty stupid like what are we even thinking?
Even if men vanished off earth one morning, she will spend the same time selecting that perfect shade of lipstick or the perfect colour of the jeans.
We are not the judges to a fashion show that goes around 24×7.
Take that straight.
The perception that whatever great qualities she has will wither off once she becomes a mother:
This is one biggie here.
We all have that girl who is the best at what she does.
But some creeps be talking about her that its ok this will last until she gets married after that it’s the same shit.
Kids their diapers and their crying and this is where she will belong.
Believe me. I have seen a lot of them come back after the maternity leave and kick serious ass.
They were more efficient with some new vigour they got after that leave.
So, if she is great at something it’s her skill. Nothing can ever take that away.
The perception of being an authoritarian if she has an opinion:
If a girl stands up for a point she believes in.
She does believe in it that’s it.
It’s not that she wants to show who’s the boss by making her point.
Yup they have that emotional quotient more than we do.
That doesn’t mean that it’s all they have.
They have a working brain to know about something and stand for it.
So the next time a woman stands for a point she makes. Don’t judge it as a lady point, listen to it with care, she may have a unique perspective we men can’t provide.
The perception that she shouldn’t try to be everything:
We should stop undermining things she does just because she is a woman.
If she loves something and wants to follow it. We have the responsibility to help her in every way we can.
Of course we have to tell her about the challenges but I really don’t think that is the case mostly.
Women are constantly told about how they can’t do something just because they are women.
Like what does chemistry need that a woman can’t have as a skill?
The core engineering fields have also seen discrimination against women.
She has some differences in her brain structure surely.
But that doesn’t stop her from using it in a way better than you.
So, it doesn’t matter if she is a woman, if she wants to do something, there is nothing that can stop her.
So these were some frustrations that a woman has to face. Let me know about more.
