Empowered Am I Not?

I know so many girls in my country who want to wear jeans but are not allowed to do so because you see “decent girls need to dress a certain way”. Your jeans are too tight, your shirt is too short, lower your dupatta and cover your face, if someone touches you it’s probably because you dressed a certain way. If you ever get raped don’t you dare speak up and get justice, instead, hide it for it’s a shame that you have faced. Don’t wear too much makeup or you will look like an auntie. Too much base will scare others away. You need to do your makeup so that you look fair, for you see, how will you ever get a man with that tanned skin?

Are Social Practices Catalyzing the Soaring Phenomenon of Gender Roles?

Gender roles expect girls to marry a man of their parents’ choice and if they don’t, they are labelled as characterless or disobedient. Boys are expected to follow the footsteps of their fathers. If a man has worked day and night to build his business, his son is bound to take over. His son cannot be an artist or a soldier, but a businessman just like his father. Boys are taught to be perfect, to earn a higher income, to feed a family, and protect his family.

The major question is why? And nobody is going to answer this why and this is the thing that I am afraid of.
