Access to education is access to opportunity. It may seem like a simple thing with no barriers, yet, for many, it is an unreachable goal.
Females continue to face obstacles based on their gender, age, financial status, and other factors. The right to education is universal and without discrimination, but not everyone has equal access to…[Read more]
shilpagladwins replied to the topic Female foeticide , A sin! Put this practice in dustbin! in the forum Sexism & Patriarchy 2 years, 6 months ago
Female foeticide is the process of finding out the sex of the foetus and undergoing abortion if it is a girl. Female infanticide is when the girl child is killed after she is born. Be it unborn or born, the minute it is known the child is a girl, the plan to kill the child is made.
Women are at the bottom rung in the social ladder and are…[Read more]
shilpagladwins replied to the topic Compromise and kill your dream in silence, just because what will people say? in the forum General Discussions 2 years, 6 months ago
In a society where women are actively encouraged to stay at home and take care of their house and family, women internalise the belief that they are not capable of standing on equal ground as men.
Women have dreams just like any man. They dream of success and being independent but society prevents them from chasing their dreams. Women are made to…[Read more]
shilpagladwins replied to the topic Female actresses should not use their femininity for promotion. in the forum Sexism & Patriarchy 2 years, 6 months ago
Femininity is not treated kindly by society. Anyone who is feminine is seen as inferior or weaker. Despite there being nothing wrong with being feminine, anyone who embraces their femininity is ridiculed and mocked. A reason for femininity to be seen in a negative light is that it is related to females, which automatically puts it there.
shilpagladwins replied to the topic Women typically earn less and hold less secure jobs than men. in the forum Gender Justice 2 years, 6 months ago
One of the most obvious issues we see is the wage disparity between men and women. Women are commonly known to earn less than men, even when doing the same job for the same number of hours.
Women’s occupations differ from men’s, resulting in disparities in earnings. A man is said to work in the manufacturing industry, which pays more than an…[Read more]
Female genital mutilation, also known as FGM, is the intentional cutting or removal of a female’s external genitalia, most commonly the labia and clitoris. The World Health Organization defines it as a non-medical procedure that injures the female genital organs. This inhumane practice has no health benefits and is a violation of human…[Read more]
Women have always been in a vulnerable position. As the inferior sex, they are constantly on the lookout for danger. Every female has a metaphorical axe hanging around her neck.
We’ve all heard stories about women being kidnapped, tortured, raped, and so on. Women are victims of heinous crimes, and survivors are barely coping with the trauma.…[Read more]
shilpagladwins replied to the topic Men are better in sciences while women are better in the humanities. in the forum Women & New Roles 2 years, 6 months ago
Gender has no bearing on the subjects. A person’s interest and knowledge in a particular subject are determined by themselves. The stereotype that men excel in science while women excel in humanities is just another way to discredit women.
Science is regarded as a difficult subject that necessitates a high level of intellect. Men are encouraged…[Read more]

Everyone understands the importance of water, sanitation, and hygiene to people and health. The right to safe water and sanitation is a fundamental human right that, sadly, many people do not have.

Females in rural areas are…[Read more]
By society’s standards, women are expected to look and act a certain way. Society establishes a set of standards for women, and if they do not meet them, they are pushed further down the social ladder.
The objectification of women can be said to go hand in hand with society’s beauty standards for women. A woman is expected to be lovely and…[Read more]

If you ask three women whether they’ve faced sexual harassment, there’s a high chance that all three would say yes. Females of all ages would have faced at least one instance of sexual harassment.
For years, women have been victims of sexual harassment. Previously, women would have remained silent and suffered in silence, whereas now, women are…[Read more]
Marital rape is something that is not widely talked about because it is not considered rape. Why would it be? It is simply sexual intercourse between a married couple. This is where one can see the failures of our Indian culture.
In India, where there is no sex education, no teaching about consent, and such, people don’t have a grasp on the c…[Read more]
Marriage is a relationship that requires love, commitment, and respect, among other things. A marriage can last for years or it can end for a variety of reasons.
An ideal married life differs for each person. If their ideals match, the marriage could prosper. It should be said that even if they are compatible, it doesn’t necessarily mean it w…[Read more]
It is not necessary to emphasise the significance of a parent’s role in a child’s life. Parents play a pivotal role in shaping their children. It is quite common for fathers to work while mothers stay at home to care for the child. Some mothers decide to return to work. Is it possible that a mother who chooses her career is neglecting her…[Read more]
The world is modernising as each minute passes by. We see new technology, discoveries, etc, and yet, something that hasn’t been modernised yet is the deeply rooted patriarchal thoughts.
One could argue that without the female, it would be difficult to keep the species alive. Females are a necessary part of the world unless males can carry life. S…[Read more]

Menstruation is something that every female will go through. It is also something of a taboo. Women feel embarrassed to talk about their menstruation, despite it being just another biological function. In the present, however, the stigma revolving around it has reduced.

Sex is a part of human nature, exceptions included. It is necessary for the continuation of the species. But, the topic of sex is taboo. Parents and teachers do not give in-depth knowledge about sex to the students who would be curious about it.
When one’s knowledge of sex is limited, one does not know everything about sex. Leaving aside the…[Read more]
A school is a child’s second home, and teachers are second only to parents in importance. Teachers have the ability to influence students, and judging a teacher based on their gender is difficult. After all, a teacher’s worth is determined by how well they teach and guide students.
