“Meeting mein red lipstick lagayegi? Are you mad?”
“Mummy ji ki roti gol, papa ji ka paisa gol!”
“Bas yaar one more year of work and then marriage and settle down.”
These aren’t just statements, they are the deeply ingrained prejudices in our society that hold women back from realizing their full potential. For centuries, women have been put under the pressure to look and behave in a certain way as if her entire individuality revolves around her physicality. And so, to seek acceptance, we try hard to be the best version of ourselves in every field. This treatment grossly undermines our potential and unfortunately, even the most educated ones practice it.
Resolving to break free from all these silly stereotypes that lead to women compromising their freedom, this video by Blush’s UnBlushed series featuring Amitabh Bachchan sends out a powerful message.
