11 struggles of being a woman, that guys will never understand
It's not easy
Women face unique challenges and only a fellow woman can understand this. To men, these struggles seem to be non-issues but can be real problems to women.
Here are some of them:
1. Walking in heels
Well, you really want to look sexy and still walk comfortably in your new pair of heels. This can really hurt but it’s the price you gotta pay anyway for being a woman.
There is nothing as embarrassing as when the makeup goes wrong. It feels really odd when everyone stares at you because you look like a clone.
What underwear should I put on today? What about the visible panty line and the wedgie from the thong? All these questions will run in a woman’s mind each day.
4. Someone showing up in an outfit like yours
For men, it doesn’t matter how many men show up in a ceremony with a similar outfit as theirs. Women spend months trying to look for a perfect and unique outfit for a certain occasion. If they find another woman with the same outfit, they will want to go change immediately or trash it.

This call of mother nature really sucks. She will wish it never came but will panic to death if she misses it. Again, the periods might show up when least expected and it freaks the hell out of you.
6. Leaking tampon
This is such a nightmare that every woman dreads and she has to keep on visiting the bathroom regularly to ensure all is well.
Everyone in the society tells you to be submissive while men are taught about being aggressive. Even when you are standing for what is rightfully yours, the society still expects you to make no demands just because you are a woman.
Relatives, neighbors and people who hardly know you will pressure you to get married and have kids without knowing your plans. Everyone wants to meddle with your personal life and it’s so annoying.
Sports bras, push up bras, strapless bras, non-is better. They all suck!
10. Gender wage gap
Why should someone with the same qualifications as you get paid more than you simply because of their gender?
Men get raped as well but it mostly happens to women. You have to be keen about the kind of clothing to wear, where to have drinks and the streets to avoid at night because you constantly fear being raped.
