Questioning the unquestioned.

Isn’t it amazing how children are conditioned into believing the accepted gender roles established by society? These social norms certainly constitute the problematic aspects of our education system. It was found recently in a school textbook, that the ideal body proportion for a woman should be 36-24-36. How exactly are these faulty values supposed to instill confidence about one’s body image?

Inhibiting the minds of the young should never be the aim of education. It is supposed to inculcate positive values and shape the thought process in a way which allows for the liberation of mind and doing away with the shackles placed by vices disguised as virtues in this patriarchal society. Then only education can prophesy for a better future.
