Drawing on Gender Inequality 1 - Batken, Kyrgyzstan
I wanted to draw my freedom. Because when I'm free and nobody objects to me, I look freely to the universe, like this girl, and I make a lot of strides. Sometimes my parents oppose that freedom. According to prevailing stereotypes, a girl must stay in a house and not take part in social events. When she gets married, her husband should take care of her. All parents prefer boys: "Learn, aspire, value the family in the future." And they tell me often that I should stay home, but I resist a lot when I want to take part in school events and get new knowledge. I want to achieve great success in a democratic society by virtue of my capabilities.
