Girls in India are subjected to huge differences as everybody thinks of women as the weaker sex. But obeying these rules and regulations that girls are subjected to doesn’t actually solve their problems but will increase them. So, we decided to compile a list of some of the most common problems girls in India face.

The Stares

Many tend to think girls as an object and a thing rather than a fellow human. It is better to advice your guys to behave proper rather than asking your girls to not to roam outside.

Gender Discrimination

Hardest FactsGender discrimination is everywhere and if you are a girl born and brought up in India, then there are chances for you about knowing the exact problems related to gender discrimination. If not your parents, it may be the society or your relatives that give you the feeling of being discriminated.Many parents in India say ‘I have raised by a girl like a boy’ what the hell is that. Raise a girl like a girl and let her know that everyone is equal and has equal rights. The hell with the discrimination saying ‘He is a boy’ is what annoys every Indian girl.

The Pressure Of Getting Married

Hardest FactsIf a girl in India turns 21, then everyone around her, her relatives, neighbors take the responsibility of setting up matches for her without her consent. Girls also have their own plans, girls also wish to have their own career, they also wish to earn a 5 digit salary and buy an Apple product by their own, they also wish to look after their parents, and marriage will not be their ultimate goal, so don’t take unnecessary responsibilities for girls.

The Period Problems

Hardest FactsPeriods in India are a stigma and girls in India have many restrictions while they were on their periods. Girls on periods are not allowed into the kitchen, they will not be given access to the achaar, the temples and these stigmas are what makes the periods more irritating for the girls. There is nothing to be ashamed of, it is a biological process, happy to bleed. It is all in the mind, change it.

Judging

Hardest FactsThis is not the problem faced alone by the girls in India but also the men, but as we are talking here about the problems of, we have to take this up, everyone will be so judgmental that they judge the character of a girl by the way she is dressed.
It is not the dress of the girl that is short but your thoughts that are so narrow-minded.

Thanks to all those Indian parents who haven’t let these problems affect their daughters and treated them equally giving them the freedom to speak, think and act. I am blessed to be one of them.
