I feel how we tend to forget how patriarchy is linked with time that brought many changes over the history. Moreover, even though we have come so far, patriarchy still exists in the most invisible form even in most modern and neo- cultural society. For example: It is always felt that if a girl has undergone a glow up it's because she wants to attract men's attention but nobody gives a damn about the fact that she is doing this to feel good or being confident about herself.
What is something you learned about patriarchy and what is something you would like to change about what you learned?
I have come to the realisation that patriarchy is something which is gonna exist for a very long time or even forever. This is because we as humans are socialised in this manner since our childhood therefore it is difficult to bring changes or change perception. But what we can do is that we should try to understand others opinions if a guy loves baking or dolls he should not be stereotyped as someone who is feminine moreover being feminine should not be looked down as something criminal and so is the case for women where girls who are tomboys are looked down upon. There should be acceptance of diverse ideas.
