1. Girl On World.

If you looked back 100 years you wouldn't believe girls couldn't vote, they didn't inherit their fathers fortune and being single was highly discouraged for women. Well now look at us; our views are important to society and our lives are no longer ruled by men, they are ruled by ourselves. So women must have been busy and this is because we go after what we believe in, we set our goals and dreams and we won't stop till the come true. 

Marilyn Munroe once said: "Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition." She was right. What kind of world would we be living in if the Suffragettes asked for the same treatment as men. We would have been brought up to believe we can be like men. We would not have had the amazing women of the 20th and 21st century, and that kind of world seems very sad to me. Virginia Woolf asked: "Why are women so much more interesting to men than men are to women?" Quite frankly that is one of the best asked questions in history, it is also the most easily answered. A man may tell you what his dreams may be; a woman would tell you how far she is to achieving those dreams . I am a girl with a dream and a passion and I am not the only one. You ask a girl what she wants and she won't answer you straight. She'll tell you, explain to you and by the end you'll have learnt her life, because a girls dream is a girls life.

Image. It means something different to every girl. For some it is how strangers see them and for others it is how beautiful her mind is. Neither of these definitions is wrong because image depends on the eyes that are looking. "Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman" Is a quote from Coco Chanel, a highly influential woman to every girl today. She has had a giant contribution to the image of females today. Personally I think of my image as how I am seen and how I am perceived. I have not only been shaped by important women but by media. Media does not help. Looking in any magazine or on any reality show you will see women of all sizes and all walks of life but sadly not all of them are seen as beautiful. Most in fact are criticised for who they are and what they do. But do you see a girl saying she is starving to be size 0? No because a girl knows what is beautiful and how to be true to oneself.

Does anyone have the definition of stereotype? It is to give a fixed form to someone or something. And doesn't  being a non stereotyping person give you a fixed form. This is confusing and I am not surprised to see that most girls I know in  fact deal with this 'stereotyping' as nothing. Girls no longer worry about weather someone thinks they are stereotypical because a girl will be what she wants to be and not care if someone doesn't like it.

A girl will keep her life real and her reality is the best thing she has so she has to keep it real.
