Expectations That are Placed on Women

Expectations on Women Part 2

-Here are the questions we asked our audience – we read through some of the answers in the episode: 

-What expectations do you think are placed on women? 

-What pressures do you face as a woman? 

-If you’re in a relationship, do you handle the majority of the grocery shopping/cleaning? 

-How do you split household chores? 

-Have you ever felt criticized for not appearing friendly/smiling? 

-Have you ever felt the expectation to be intimate with your partner, even if you didn’t want to/didn’t feel like it? 

-Do you feel pressured to be thin? 

-Have you felt pressured into marriage or having a family? 

-If you’re single, have you felt pressured to be in a relationship? 

-Do you feel that you have to shave your body hair? 

-We would love to discuss these same questions with men and members of the LGBTQ+ community. We realize women are not the only ones facing pressure and expectations. 

Don’t forget!
