Modern Girl

Modernity stands for progress. A modern girl therefore is an emancipated girl who cannot be subjugated or subdued by the panoptic on gaze of patriarchy. She is proud of her sex and is capable of challenging the gendered vision of her class. She is not dependent on her father, brother, husband or son. She expresses herself and earns her own livelihood. She is educated and smart. She has estimated ‘gender discrimination’ that her predecessors suffered for centuries. She has retained the old woman virtues like sympathy, tolerance, sacrifice, sympathy, compassion determination and care but she fought off any attempt of subjection.
