Gender equality is the essence of any modern society. In our neighbouring country India, women and girls easily ride on cycles and scooters which makes them confident. However in Pakistan our conservative society and men’s bad habits of staring, whistling and harassment shows that our male oriented society is psychologically ill. Many people talk about gender equality however nobody has any strategy to protect our girls who have to leave their homes to peruse a career or education, what to say of riding bikes.
