Women ,the play toy of society ! Harsh ,but true! That’s what I refer to call the female version of society. And sadly ,but this play toy is played mostly by her own types .you wouldn’t disagree if I tell you that most women are judged by other women and are often given tags just because of other women think so about them!!
But ,this doesn’t make the male part lesser partner in crime .They agree openly that judging a women according to her looks , dressing types or backgrounds is thier right too .I wonder when will the females inherit the same right from our so called democratic society.
According to Nihar Naturals #IAmCapable survey conducted by Nielsen India reveals:
a. 69% of men agree that their judgement of women is based on their looks.
b. 64% of women agree that the judgments passed on them have affected their ability to reach their true potential.
c. 70%of women agree that majority of judgments on women are from family members or friends rather than strangers.
d. 72% of women agree that working women face more judgments on their looks or their clothes than housewives.
These statistics openly portrays how women ,according to thier appearances have to face grudges or hardships juat because of some silly stereotypes thoughts that are now a stale part of our society .These judgements often tend to hinder the growth and devolupment of women and often leave them end up lost or depressed and even sometimes as dangerous as committing suicides .
But there are women on the stronger sides too ,who even after being judged and grudges evolve as a stronger persona and hence proved all those beliefs to be extremely wrong.
For instance , there’s always this belief that women in Islam are crushed and kept backward and they couldn’t cope with the rapid growth of society. Thus ,because of this whenever I wore Islamic hijab and showed my desire to be a part of outdoor social events related to blogging, I was bluntly rejected saying it won’t be possible with the hassles of hijab and would scare away the opponent as they wouldn’t be comfortable interacting with me .
But , I was adamant and after I got a chance proved to be an equally capable and active social blogger who can interact with anybody comfortably and with immense confidence even with my proper hijab on thus proving the point that my religion and it’s beliefs that I strictly and very lovingly follow can never be a hindrance to my progress in any ways.
Today ,I can proudly say ,because of my step of moving ahead in society with my hijab on and pursuing my career confidently ,I often see many similar females moving around comfortably in hijab and doing the same . I often get thanked and complimented and even marvelled upon as to how I opened the doors of changing views and stereotypes about the women in hijab.
Presently ,what I feel is never judge a book with it’s cover !And when it comes to women ,this book is judged by its each aspect ,from cover to length , breadth ,colour etc. It’s high time this atittude was stopped and women were given freedom from this trap of judging her .And women , should be brave and confident enough to scratch the mist of stereotypes around them and take a step forward ,towards life ,towards happiness !!
