Free me / Gender Equality

Free me

Using the English and Chinese terms for boy(男) and girl(女), we explain the vast cultural differences between Eastern and Western countries. Gender-based prejudices exist in today's societies, and both men and women are labelled and expected to behave according to their gender. In general, men are perceived to be more capable than women, and such stereotypes are like shackles that confine us.
