On International Women’s Day, Clothes and Being Female

Happy International Women’s Day everyone! Here’s to hoping our daughters and grand daughters can grow up in a world where they aren’t judged, labelled or despised based on something they can’t control: their biological gender. Hell I’ll settle for a world where girls aren’t judged solely on the clothes they choose to wear because apparently:

If a girl wears ‘sexy’ clothing = she’s a slut

If a girl wears ‘normal’ clothes = she’s not sexy enough or is boring

If a girl wears conservative clothes = she’s obviously repressed so therefore desperate for it

If a girl wears a hijab/headscarf = she’s oppressed and obviously needs liberating

If a girl wears a burqa = she’s a terrorist

Dear world, please grow up. We are so much more than the clothes on our back.
