“Is it because I’m a girl?” asked a girl when her mom did not allow her to play out with the boys. That’s just one of the earliest memories of many women when it comes to gender discrimination.

But as we grow up in a progressing society and join it as a working adult, many can see for themselves how different women are treated from male colleagues. Unfortunately, people do things the way they did because that’s just how this world is built. The system is deep-rooted in our parents’ minds and ours.

One could never imagine it’s penetrated deep into the things that we are regularly used to.

This is Karly Hou, the woman behind the Twitter thread that laid out 18 facts that significantly affect our lives.

Patriarchy is also a culture that cannot be easily changed. “Cultural change is not easy to effect, especially when it comes to something as structurally inscribed as the patriarchy,” wrote Daphne Merkin. However, patriarchy itself is not evil as long as one executes it with women’s safety and comfort in mind.
