What is Woman’s Day?
What does it mean to wish a Happy Woman’s Day?
If we must celebrate a day for women, let us celebrate freedom from stereotypes, from expectations, from idolisation, from sacrifice…Stop these constructs which are aimed at making her strive for an impossible balance… Let her be inadequate… And happy!
Stop making her look at herself through a conveniently male viewpoint. Let her be imperfect, whimsical, irresponsible, boorish, lazy, fierce, opinionated, loud, flabby, ungroomed, adventurous, unpredictable, unprepared, impractical….
let her be herself ..
like Nirupama Rajeev’s daughter asks in the film How Old Are you “Who decides the expiry date of a woman’s dreams?”
