Day 24 of #whyweneedfeminismin2021 Juggling responsibilities has been a constant confusion. I wonder why! Oh, so many roles, mother, daughter, wives, daughter-in-law, sisters, chef, cooking, cleaning, pick up the child, drop them to school, visit friends, show up at every functions, look good, don’t be tired. It is all unrealistic, all inhuman. #qotd Do youContinue reading “Why We Need Feminism in 2021 #24”

Umm, bra strap! I am just going to leave it here and go actually. How does a bra strap become such a shhh-shhh topic. Bring me one person who hasn’t been eyed for that strap showing up or that eyebrow raise for a little bit of cleavage. Clothes or skin does not account for respectabilityContinue reading “Why We Need Feminism In 2021 #16”

Day 15 of #whyweneedfeminismin2021 I don’t even understand why I have to say this. Feminism stands for sisterhood, but sisterhood does not mean that you, by default, like every person around you. It is absolutely okay to not get along with every human possible. It all boils down to supporting and standing for something thatContinue reading “Why We Need Feminism in 2021 #15”
