Living in the world we are living makes me feel that it is not the best thing to be a woman. It is scary to be a woman in the society we are living. Not even a day goes by where we don’t come across a rape case or assault of a woman or eve teasing. There is no one to hear us in this misogynist society. No matter how many songs we sing of being progressive and developed, we are still the same until our women are not safe.


This world is not for women. It is 2018 and we are still not in a time when women can go out on the streets without the fear of being molested or kidnaped or raped. We are still in the time when we start questioning a woman’s character if she comes forward and starts talking about the assault she went through. I mean look at what is happening with Tanushree Dutta, there are witnesses to back her up but still, no one is listening to her. She is still being questioned about her intentions of coming back after ten years and talking about the incident that made her leave her career, her family and her country.


We talk about women leading the world but truth be told it is still a patriarchal society with men making all the rules and breaking all the rules and women just living in the fear of being misjudged for things like her clothing choices, makeup or even the career choices she makes.


Recently a civil rights activist named, Danielle Muscato asked women what would they do if all men had a 9 PM curfew and the answers broke my heart. The answers showed us a scary reflection of our society and the way women in our society are living in just the hope of being treated equally and just praying for a world where they wouldn’t have to be scared if they are on the roads after 8 PM.

Men should read these tweets maybe they would understand something.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I would go outside or to a park at night. I love the nighttime outside when it's so quiet, and there is a quiet contemplative beauty to the world, especially in the city.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I just booked an airbnb for a work trip which will have me out late into the evenings.

We should really think of starting a curfew after 9 PM.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Go out to bars by myself, walk with both headphones in my ears without my keys in between my fingers inmy hand.</p>— Kristen Michelle (@KristenKayMBee) <a href="https://twitter.com/KristenKayMBee/status/1044688041443553283?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 25, 2018</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">can you imagine getting up to go to the bathroom and leaving your drink sitting there, knowing when you get back that you're not going to fall unconscious. Or getting as drunk as you want and stumbling home, no fear of being followed. that's twilight zone shit.</p>— HM Esmerie (@lizardwedding) <a href="https://twitter.com/lizardwedding/status/1046163819565912064?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 29, 2018</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Some men replied to this thread and said that they never realised what women had to go through because men had so much freedom.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Wow, I feel horrible right now. None of this has ever occurred to me as an issue. I run, I go do whatever I want whenever I want.<br><br>Why aren't women filled with uncontrollable rage all the time?</p>— Houston Wolf (@houstonwolf) <a href="https://twitter.com/houstonwolf/status/1044776903419351041?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 26, 2018</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

It never occurred to them that it was a gender privilege.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">I’m a white guy who regularly visits other countries by himself, walking city streets after midnight while listening to music on my headphones while not speaking the language. Never even occurred to me that this was a gender privilege.</p>— Randall Stephens 🏳️‍🌈 (@DrBeagleman1) <a href="https://twitter.com/DrBeagleman1/status/1044770605294395398?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 26, 2018</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

The happy thing is that at least some men gain a little knowledge about the world of women because of threads like these.
