Artist's description:

This is my third submission to Artfinder's #ArtWorldSexism-the new campaign against discrimination against women in general and in particular in the field of art. Artfinder has some alarming statistics to show how talented women in art almost reach nowhere!

This is as expected, for every woman, right from her childhood has faced discrimination some time or the other in her life on account of her being a female . I feel she gets used to it and learns to live with it. Putting up with this treatment becomes her second nature. In some parts of the world her very birth casts a pal of gloom on the family! Female fetuses are aborted, infants are smothered or simply abandoned ! It's hard to believe but it happens! So if she survived all this she still continues the struggle for a world that is "fair" to the fairer sex! She walks with her head held high in defiance of the atrocities and dares to live with respect. There are men who respect her and treat her as equal but the few who do not, can cause havoc in her life. She never knows when during her life she will meet such men and her struggle will start ! I have depicted the woman I dream to see one day, walking out of the shadows ,the one who leads her life on her own terms, just as any man would do. Male dominance should one day end and women and men should be equal in all respects.
