“That’s not how girls sit” is a statement most women would have heard. As kids, girls are specifically taught to sit cross-legged. Only then is it considered “decent”. If a girl is found sitting with her legs apart, then someone or the other is sure toexclaim – “Why are you sitting like a guy! It looks indecent”. But who really has decided these postures and why is it still followed widely – be it in public places or even in the comfort of one’s own home? These questions have been raised often and it seems like women have decided to overthrow this rule of sitting like “a lady should’ with a new hashtag ‘#womanspreading’.Like #MeToo, which was used by women across the world to share their experiences on sexual assault, #womanspreading is also being used widely on social media by women to show that they are no longer willing to conform to the pre-determined way of sitting for girls.

Social media is flooded with photographs of women across the world who have used #womanspreading.These photographs show women confidently sitting with their legs wide apart. The background setting and pose differ in the photographs, but the legs continue to be spread wide, making a strong statement. In the last few years, #manspreading had become a trend. It basically means men sitting with their legs stretched wide apart without caring two hoots about the world. In photos and in real life, we might have seen men sitting in that posture and somehow, no one has called it ‘indecent’ or ‘awkward’. But when it comes to women sitting that way, it seems a huge problem. While men tend to stare in an obscene way, other women also give disapproving glances. That’s what these women have set out to change by sharing these photographs. Also Read – Kim Kardashian Triggers Hilarious Memes With Her Met Gala 2021 Look – Dementor or Batman?

I can’t say that I’m a feminist but I believe everyone (men or women) has the right to feel comfortable while seating as far as there’s nothing wrong with the way he/she dressed/posed. It’s not about sex it’s just about self-respect. #womanspreading #becoolbegood
