12 Sexist Comments That Women Choose To Ignore

By Aayushi Porwal in Fashion & Lifestyle 01/12/2017

Time and again women have been objectified, discouraged, undermined, tamed, eve teased and sexually harassed in all walks of life. Be it on the footpath, at home or even at workplaces, there are comments passed on women by men for their so-called “fun and entertainment”.

 

But blame it entirely on men? No way! Women never react to any of these comments and acts. When a girl steps out of the home, travels alone to either go to school, college, or to the office, there are people advising her to either keep mum or ignore. It’s not because they are too shy to speak up, but they have gotten used to facing sexist comments daily. And this clearly shouldn’t be the case!

 

Here are 12 sexist comments that women hear every day and ‘ignore them’.
