Do we treat teenage girls like social experiments? This short film is a must watch

Watch 'Her Monologue' - a short film that revolves around the roller coaster of emotions and ups and downs teenage girls feel through a day

Adulting is difficult for everybody but when it comes to entering the teenaged years for girls – that is a whole other story. No, we are not talking about the biological alterations but those are hard too. Here we are talking about the social construct of being a girl wrapped around burdensome prejudices which are narrow and suffocating. As you get into your teenage years, everybody, including your parents, teachers, neighbours, and even social media trolls, are busy giving you ‘How to Woman 101‘ lessons but nothing seems to add up other than anxieties and insecurities. This short film titled ‘Her Monologue’ shows you a day in a life of a teenage girl and it is unnervingly true.

This video, apt to the title, deals with the internal monologue of a teenage girl who is exposed to daily hate comments, body shaming, and stereotyping which is ultimately super tiresome.

With so much scrutiny, we feel anxious about our body, skin, and even identity. So the easiest resort is to revel in pretense and “Conceal; don’t feel”

Then there is stereotyping. A woman can never be too proud of her achievements because they are many poking noses telling her that she has had it easy because she is a ‘girl’. The latest example of that would be, John McEnroe’s comment on Serena Williams that, “if she played the men’s circuit, she’d be like 700 in the world.” *Ugh, I can’t even*

And if still many people wonder why women grow up to retaliate and why ‘feminism’ is important, please watch this.
