Even though we live in the 21st century, our society still shies away from treating women as equals. Its regressive and patriarchal mindset couldn’t accept that women are as good as men! They still believe in regressive stereotypes that women can’t drive or women are physically weak!
So, on International Women’s Day, we have compiled some pointers on what society believe women can’t do to remind it what women have actually achieved!
1. Women don’t know how to drive! They are terrible drivers!

2. Women are physically weak. They have fragile bodies!
Flight Lieutenant Mohana Singh has become the first woman fighter pilot to be qualified to undertake missions by day on Hawk advanced jet aircraft. Singh, along with two other women Bhawana Kanth and Avani Chaturvedi, had joined the fighter stream in June 2016. pic.twitter.com/KxIN5pdvlj
5. Women are not as good as men when it comes to doing business!
1/ What a pivotal moment for women entrepreneurs in India. In Falguni, we have our own Whitney Wolfe moment – Founder and CEO of a $13B company! A proud moment indeed, congratulations @falguninayar and team @MyNykaa! pic.twitter.com/0b9dLt0tSB
7. Women are too emotional! They are not rational and logical!
In October 1989, M Fathima Beevi became the first woman to be appointed as a Supreme Court judge. Her achievement paved the way for women in India to hold positions in the higher judiciary.#BharatKiLaxmi
9. Women can’t handle their jobs and careers as they become mothers!
Mary Kom dedicates her historic 6th World Boxing Championship title to the nation. I’m so proud of the true Champion, loving mother of 3 kids, a colleague Rajya Sabha MP and like my little sister. Salute to @MangteC 🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/nKn2h8ZMGy
