    A woman is the constant muse and minstrel either to a poet, an artist or a musician. Hence, she is typified to be the prettier-than-perfect angel from a heavenly abode. This stereotype attaches extra baggage on the women as they are forced into believing that the essence of what they need to be in life is beautiful.

    A woman could be a million things in one–a mom, daughter, sister, beloved,  worker or  student and whatnot. But society deems her to fit into the structure of first and foremost being a thing of beauty and only then will she prove to be a joy forever. Joy which she might not feel ever and which will only be felt by the cursed male gaze.

    A post shared by Alia Bhatt 💛 (@aliaabhatt)

    From a tender age, women are brought up with wisdom passed down by their beloved parents, families and relatives that they need to sit with their legs placed together like a lady and basically not sit boisterously like a man. Top that with the idea of not laughing out loud and being always polite, being slender and not turning obese, dressing conservatively and not being outrageous. These are just a handful of the many stereotypes that women folk need to deal with on a daily basis.

    A post shared by Josh Horowitz (@joshuahorowitz)

    The Academy award winning actor voiced her opinion out loud as she said, “If I could turn back the clock, I would have used my voice in a completely different way. And say to the media, society and journalists that don’t you dare treat me like this and say that I am a young woman, my body is changing, I’m figuring it out I’m deeply insecure, I’m terrified. Don’t make it harder than it already is, that is bullying and also borderline abusive.” 

    The actor condemned the hoo-ha created around looking perfect on red carpets and the expectation from celebrities to look a certain way. She lashed out at the usage of the word ‘svelte’ dubbing it as cruel. She burst the bubble about celebrities and pointed out even celebs do like eating a bag of chips, farting and not being a certain body type unlike societal expectations.

    So, the mantra on the matter is that let your body be, enjoy your journey of life, allow yourself to take the process you can manage to attain body goals, eat, work, exercise, play, do everything. But, don’t let the world decide your path. You do you, girl!
