Whereas in India women are treated as a laborer who has to do everything from raising the child to household activities, It is entirely different in the west. Western Women are much freer and got no boundation on them. No doubt they are mothers and also look after the house, but yet, they always have a choice to opt for the lifestyle they wish to live.

9. The Respect:

When it comes to the factor respect, Indian women are judged a lot based on their interest and lifestyle, the only handful of people yet in India do understand the meaning of Respecting Women no matter what. Now when it comes to the West, there aren’t any single ifs and buts for the respect of a woman. If a woman does not have a right or she feels her respect is threatened by somebody, she can appeal easily.

8. Dreams are not Just Dreams:

When it comes to Indian content, girls and women yet have to leave their desires and become something that their family wishes for them to be because Indian mindset yet revolves around the government jobs and doctors rather than the fact that we make dreams and fulfill the reality of success. When it comes to Western culture, women are free there to opt for any dream they wish to be. From a pilot, actress or writer, they get all equally.

7. Liberty:

Those who say people are too extrovert in the west are wrong. They might be explorer and achiever but judgment over the liberty of lifestyle won’t be right. In the west, women are socially, professionally and personally free from the society. They not just have the right to vote or achieve dreams but rather got much more rights than common in India. Women in India are not as liberated as western women yet because they are rather a puppet of their families or rather puppet of the socially backward mentality of society. If anyone of them dares to be such liberal as compared to the west, they are often mistreated.

6. Education Freedom and Rights:

In India, Women are yet facing the right to decide their own career streams. A girl in her high school is often forced by her parents to choose the desired subjects that their parents wish for because it’s their parent’s dream more important than her owns. If we compare the west in this field they are freer because girls are given rights to choose their education in whichever field they choose, be it dance or science.

5. Styling to Dressing:

Now, this is quite a goal for women when it comes to choosing a desired dress or style. If we look in the west, women are quite free to welcome whatever dress or style they wish to achieve. Be it coloring hair red or blue till wearing a cleavage they are always given a freedom to dress and style according to their wish. While women in India are yet dependent on their parent’s permission often to dress or even get tattooed due to the Indian idiotic judgmental taboo.

4. Working with Respect:

Women however in the west do not often worry about their respect for the constitution already has given a lot of rights to them for their safety and self-esteem. They do not even have to worry to think about the freedom of speech or right to be protected as they are much more guarded. While women in India yet have to face the male domination and exploitation sometimes to move ahead in their life whereas women in the west very rarely face such instances and often move ahead without compromising with their pride.

3. Politically Strong:

While political issues are yet a matter of debate in India, women are warmly welcomed in the west in the Political sphere. Western Women rarely doubt the matter of Politics and cheerfully takes part in politics but Women in India who dares to take part in politics for the betterment of society and help needy are not supported by their nearest one, which makes the entry into the politics for them a hassle. Either if they are allowed to enter into it, most probably the political work will be handled by the male person of that family, so there is no active role played by that female participant into the politics.  Although, some female figures in India did manage to reach the top of political sphere yet the society in India always think of a Woman as a Home Maker. But there isn’t a doubt that India always had been the land of queens and kings then why stereotyping?

2. Moving out:

Moving out after the age of 18 has been part of the Western Society since ages. Women in West are given right to choose whether they wish to acquire their own independent home or stay with parents. Women, there are given more space and are respected for it. While in India, We only have right to move out after marriage or if luckily we get placed in a metro city for a job. Again, thanks to the funktard society.

1. Freer Lifestyle:

Now it is a debatable point since ages in India. While women in West are treated free and given respect for whatever is their choice of lifestyle, women in India are yet in a barrier with their parents, then friends and finally society’s mindset to set a lifestyle in hidden darkness because we are not even mature to be true to ourselves.

There’s no doubt why people are so addicted to moving to west nowadays. I am not saying India is not developed but the society is yet in the middle of backward society whereas the young generation is moving ahead with the years. There’s no doubt why clashes are much on the pinpoint these days in every home between child and the parent. In my views, every parent should have a session of counseling who are facing difficulty in being open and understandable with their children. This helps, I know it does.
