As a woman, we face a lot of biases in our life. From being called a weaker sex to being exploited, we have seen it all. But ladies, this Women’s Day, we want you to break all those biases and help you blossom the way you want.

She is JUST a girl waala bias: Well, when you hear this, the first thing that comes to your mind is ‘awww poor thing’. And most people just dismiss us from every opportunity that we might totally deserve – be it at work or home. Image courtesy: Shutterstock

break the bias 2/8

When will you get married waala bias: From relatives to those neighbourhood aunties, the world might go to war but their life’s main agenda remains your marriage. No one will evercome to us and talk about promotions or anything else, but shaadi kab krogi seems to be the start and end of a women’s life. FYI, that’s so not the case. Image courtesy: Shutterstock

You can’t go out in the night bias: You can be the most responsible one but you must have heard this at least once in your life – beta, please be home before it gets dark. We wantto ask why? Why is it just a woman's responsibility to stay in so that she’s safe? Why has no one ever felt that it’s everybody’s responsibility to create a safe space for women? Image courtesy: Shutterstock

Handle your family first waala bias: Have you ever heard a man cribbing about being under pressure to be a homemaker first, and see later what’s out there for him profession-wise?Of course, not. But why do women have to always be answerable for this? This is another bias that has slaughtered many ambitions, before they could have blossomed. Sad, indeed! Image courtesy: Shutterstock

Ladki hi chala rahi hogi waala bias: Do you know that as per a World Bank report, men are rash drivers, have less regard for traffic rules, and exhibit risky driving behaviour. Even then, if you are driving a car and god forbid any mishap happens, all you have to hear is, arre ladki chala rahi thi, yeh toh hona hi tha. Image courtesy: Shutterstock

Proving herself all the time waala bias: Your male counterpart may not have to do it all the time, but it is a mandate for you to prove yourself time and again. Maybe because thereis an innate sense of insecurity that is inbuilt in us – because we don’t want our bosses to think she is a woman and might not be able to handle this. And that’s the reason you will see most women burning out more than they should. Image courtesy: Shutterstock

break the bias 8/8

Who will take care of the kids waala bias: Babies are a byproduct of love and sex, and this needs the involvement of two people. Then why is it only a mother’s responsibility to take care of her child? What’s the harm in sharing the load? And why is this sacrifice always EXPECTED from women? Looks like the answer to this has not been found yet. Image courtesy: Shutterstock
