Stereotypes are inevitable. They will always be part of any society whether we like it or not because no matter what we do, even if we don’t do anything, there will always be those who will burden us with expectations of who to be and who not to be.
With this in mind, living in the world becomes a bit more challenging for anyone. For a woman, there is that constant judgment on how to look and how to be “proper”. Whether you put make up on or you don’t, whether you like to read or not, whether you shave your armpits or just let it be, judgments will be made which makes it harder to just not care. People always tell women what to be and how to act, so why can’t women tell them who they really want to be and how they want to act?
Women are so often represented to be people too wary of their appearance, but that is just not the case. Even if they try to look “good” or not, they are still and will always be more than just their physical beauty.
