Men were whining about the undue advantage that women traveling by public transport have in ladies’ coaches. A woman shut them up with her reply.
The ‘ladies coach and seat’ has always been a hot topic of discussion for men. They term it as ‘outrageous’ and have also accused us of playing a double game. They say that on one hand women talk about feminism and gender equality and on the other they take advantage of these ‘privileges’. But is it so?
We live in a society which in general pushes the idea that the needs of men should always be put above the needs of women. Hence, it is only natural that men will occupy the seats and in most cases not even bother to accommodate women.
Also, there are very few women and the seats go empty anyway. But why are there so few women?
The main reason these seats are reserved is because there is a need for it. Without them, most of the time, women in our society will never get a seat.
We can of course do away with these archaic regulations, which even most women find offensive, when our society is matured enough to start respecting women by thinking that they are both equal.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
