Gender Inequality from Iranian Female Perspective
|April 26, 2012|
An Iranian blogger shared an experience about gender inequality from a female perspective in her blog, Baloot, on April 6,2012.
“I complimented a girl on her swimming at our college pool last week. She grinned and responded: ‘Yes, everyone tells me that I swim as well as boys.’ I didn’t say anything but it stuck in my mind. She feels accomplished when she compares herself with men. Well, this enpowers gender inequality when success is associated with men. I saw her this week again and told her that the words we use transfer into our culture. She obviously didn’t like what I said, and recommended that I “take it easy.” Today, we crossed paths again and she didn’t even look at me!”
