For years, people have tried to dominate the lives of women in one way or another. It’s the year 2020, and some of us continue to be bombarded with unsolicited advice on how to live our lives. It’s bizarre that people have so much to say about a woman’s life. How to dress, how to talk, how to eat, when to get married, what to do at your job, when to have kids.. the list could go on. Speaking from an Indian girl’s perspective, comments about most of these issues are delivered with so much mindlessness, it makes me wonder if people ever really pause for a second and think before talking. For most of us, tuning out such comments has been the ultimate saviour. But its also an absolutely normal emotion to experience wanting to pull your hair out when people talk smack to you!
Ahead, we give you a list of common comments women are tired of hearing and if you’re someone who’s guilty of making them, you know what to do!

But why do you need to work? Your dad has money and when you get married, your husband will have money.
