Are You A Woman With Opinions? You Will Relate To This Post! #WomenOnTheMove

A woman with opinions is often tagged as 'bossy'. Will this ever change? Read what readers had to say on the #WomenOnTheMove chat.

A woman with opinions is often tagged as ‘bossy’. Will this ever change? Read what readers had to say on the #WomenOnTheMove chat.

I am a woman. And I am opinionated. I am not opinionated because I want to be rude or bossy. I am opinionated because not only I have the right to have an opinion but also I have the right to share that opinion. There is nothing wrong with that. Because everyone has that right. And sorry to break your shell but ‘Silence’ is not a woman’s best friend!

Earlier this week, we had our weekly #Womenonthemove chat over at Twitter, and this is what we discussed.

(If you’re not yet following Women’s Web on Twitter, do now, and you can come over for the chat too, every Thursday 6-7PM IST).

The battle of the sexes

I have a voice, hear me; I am a human, see me

Should women do the talking for bringing in perception change?

Women themselves have a role to play; to support their sorority

Is there another way to bring in perception change?

Change! Do we see it coming?

Personally, I feel that a perception change can only be brought in if we can manage to raise a generation of girls who are unafraid of the judgments their sharing of opinions will bring; and a generation of boys who don’t think that their existence is endangered & jeopardised because girls have refused to take things lying down. Moreover, we as parents & as society need to support our girls who stand up and speak out. Because opinions are okay. And girls with opinions are okay.
