Just being a woman comes with no respect in this society.
You have to have the following qualities or assets to be recognised/respected:
• you should be conventionally beautiful- you should be fair (where fair women are considered beautiful) or of dark complexion (where dark women are considered beautiful)
• you should always be "presentable" or the real word is FICTIONAL PERFECT, that requires no body fat (on unwanted areas of your body) no hair on your skin (because of course biologically we aren't mammals who are supposed to have body hair) and your face should look flawless, but God forbid if you apply makeup, better be a "natural beauty".
• you should be smart but of course they will ask you questions just to prove you wrong, you should love sports (boys love girls who love sports and our only mission in life is to impress boys) but then again they'll ask you questions because of course girls are dumb.
• you should sit properly, legs together and back erect (in case your cleavage shows), because no one is interested in educating us in the schools, all they care about is that these "Raja babu" boys don't get distracted.
And after all these restrictions and rules and "lady-like lessons", 8 out of 10 girls are being harrased, catcalled, slut-shamed, molested or sometimes raped. And the society still has the f*cking nerve to blame the victim. Maybe it's high time to teach our boys that a girl doesn't have to fall in any of the criterias to be respected or least, to be considered a human.
