Raising sexist babies in Lebanon

"“It’s going to help form a certain idea of femininity in their minds from a very young age, [one in which] women are supposed to be manicured and waxed… and this really is a social construct more than anything else,” said Lynn Darwich, a member of Feminist Collective, which primarily advocates gender equality in Lebanon. “It’s a negative social construct because women end up feeling ugly if they’re not manicured… You get little girls who really focus on matters that shouldn’t be this important at the end of the day.”" (thanks Sarah)

I am done for the day. Good night.
