Being a woman in this day and age has become so difficult. With everyone feeling they have a right to judge how women should act, how they should speak, what they should wear, what they shouldn’t wear and having an opinion about every little detail, it has become a constant struggle.
This viral video has been circulating and it depicts the struggle of every single woman and what we have to go through. Nothing is ever good enough, leaving women always feeling insecure, unaccepted and torn between being cool, sexy and attractive, and being labelled as slutty, indecent or even too uptight.
As women, we’re constantly faced with certain expectation of what it means to be a lady. From covering up, to staying up to date with the latest fashion, the constant labeling and expectations cause so many insecurities, an identity crisis and constant dissatisfaction among women. “Be a lady, they Said…” depicts the inner struggle we all feel and is a positive way to finally speak up about how ridiculous this is all becoming. It’s about time women start standing up to the patriarchal world we live in and take a stance against how the world keeps interfering in what they think is ladylike.
