There are a lot of social rules and norms laid down for women all over the world. They’re supposed to behave in a certain way, talk softly, walk properly, be loving, caring and devoted to their male counterparts and manage the household all their life. They aren’t allowed to be sexual beings because if you’re too sexual, you’re a slut.
But the mentality is changing, the process is slow, but it is happening.

At one point or another, we’ve all been there, done that, seen that or heard that. If not all of it, then most of it. You know what that tells us? It says we’re all just the same people, plagued with same strength, insecurities, choices and power. And that is what makes us women so badass.
