My Choices are Like My Fingerprints

The Vogue Empower series video, ‘My Choice’ on Women Empowerment has drawn a lot of criticism. The only statement that I liked in this video is, ‘My choices are like my fingerprints’.

The major themes in this movie are appearance and sexuality. Be it a man or a woman, sexuality that goes beyond the norms of the society has to be punished. You cannot say, ‘I am a woman, I choose to have extra-marital relationships and that is my choice.’

Women have a lot more dimensions than how they dress, whom they love and when they come home. What about their professional and educational choices? What about the number of roles they play, as a daughter, mother, wife, sister and friend?

Not a great movie, compared to the other two movies, ‘Boys don’t cry’ and ‘going home’.
