Many women across different parts of the world does not have the choice of pursuing their career. They are stripped away from education and entitled to some other man once they reach a certain age. Men are put with unlimited power in their hands to choose what they think is best for their wives, daughters, mothers or sisters. They are often told and taught to maintain their work- life balance.

This causes them to sacrifice their education, dreams, jobs and body. And somehow all this have been so normalized that we do not even pay much heed to it. We raise the issue of gender equality, gender stereotypes, sexism, feminism, patriarchy, but we fail to acknowledge the root cause behind all such matters. The right to choose. A woman has the right to choose the best for herself and her body and I believe that no one should intervene in it.
