    Rape culture

    I think it is offensive to attach the word "rape" to "culture". Culture is something which is passed on from one generation to other accompanied with age old traditions and customs. How can crime become a culture? Is there any murder, stealing and robbing culture? Associating rape to a culture is what promotes rape.

    For long I walked on the path of gender norms of the society
    I tried to dress modestly,
    And embraced to cook,
    I read all the feminine books.
    I stopped using curse words,
    I didn't follow the profession i loved.
    I tried not to have my own views,
    As a women like this is liked by few.
    I tried not to fight for my rights,
    As future of a women like this is not bright.
    I did everything to become an ideal women,
    But l was the one who failed and lost my soul,
    Because society moulds,
    Every female's dreams,minds, intellect and what not,
    But This has to stop now,
    No more shall we bow as it has cut our wings.
    Still With the broken wings we will battle,
    With the Every ounce of strength that we will gather.
