Have you ever been on a date where the waiter placed the cheque, very conveniently in front of the man and not you? Why is it, that when a woman orders scotch on the rocks, she is usually met with raised eyebrows? Everyone’s used to the idea of a woman drinking wine but not whisky. Why is that? If you experience all this in your daily life, this video will almost give you a sense of deja vu.
This video of a man and a woman on their first date, subtly highlights the undertone of sexism, that we face in our everyday lives. The way we have been raised and conditioned to hold a certain view point, often leaves us frazzled, when those view points and notions are challenged.
Surely we’ve come a long way from the dark ages, but we aren’t there yet. Hopefully, someday we’ll get there.
