The world has advanced significantly as thoughts for better technological inventions have made way. After 76 years of independence, innumerable movements, petitions, and bills, we as a society still struggle to understand basic terms like Feminism. Gender equality and gender neutrality are the terms that now embellish the books and speeches for winning votes.
There are many long believed misogynies and stereotypes that still persist in the society we live in. Women are always a target of these terms mostly due to a lack of knowledge and of course narrow mindsets.
While we as individuals try to reduce and completely eradicate these cliches, our politicians seem to be going backwards. Of course, HYPOCRISY runs in their blood. Here is a list of some dialogues that have been AUDACIOUSLY spoken in the limelight. Read on to find the hypocrisy level.
