Yes, the gender stereotypes created in our society have often disrespected women. These stereotypes have often restricted women in choosing their careers, deciding what they have to do and always listening to their family, men etc. Women often hear words like this job is meant for men, you’re not strong enough to do this etc etc. This is how these gender stereotypes disrespect women, girls can’t do this, girls aren’t meant to do that are some disrespectful words heard by women. These stereotypes are one reason that keeps women backwards of the world, women are often taught to stand behind a man in order to stay protected, is this a way to threaten her? Can’t she protect herself from the rage of the society against her? Ofcourse she can, women are alot more stronger than a society thinks she is, a misconception that the society has created that a woman can’t do anything without a man is hilarious because even after being threatened, even after being denied to do what they want, women are fulfilling their dreams. Hence, the disrespect that is created using the gender stereotypes is now in this era, is bound to be broken because women today are unstoppable.
