It has never been easy to be a woman in this society, but it is getting better with changing times. However, there is still a long way to go before women can live their life on their own terms without getting judged and some of the recent incidents prove the same.
Trolling can be fun for some people but it can leave a lasting impact on other people’s minds. Most of the time the target is a celebrity, especially female celebrities. Here is proof of the same with some of the recent incidents where women are being judged not only for their looks but also for their life choices.
