*What was she doing on Road at 12 in the night?*
*And she was drunk too*
Did anyone questioned the presence of Men around her or if Why they are drunk? No, because our Brains are hardwired to question Females, right from the childhood.
Be it any stage of Life – Childhood, Youth, Married or otherwise, Mother or Grandmother- We are free to question her Decisions, her Choices and her way of Living.
The other day when Family was discussing one-of-many incidents of women being molested, I could not stop myself and boldly asked “Why these Drunk men have the liberty to molest Women and even then we question Women?”
There was a silence in the room for few seconds and then someone changed the topic as if I said something illicit.
Women who do not fall into the Patriarchy norms and question everything are asked to remain quiet. They are being labeled as Rude or Shameless.
These people who are the first to pin-point Girls for the mishap, feel threatened by the one who disturb the balance of power by questioning the foolish-norms.
Why can’t we stop questioning our Daughters, Mothers and Sisters and let them live on their own terms.
What I want to bring out here is – People will have their own bizarre reasoning and you cannot change the mindsets but Hey Women, we need to break the Silence. We need to take our stand. Do not expect anyone to bring the change for you.
We should not let anyone take decisions for us or to choose the right way for us- Make your own rules and Live Life stronger.
