Female drivers in Pakistan get a bad rep

If anything, female drivers in Pakistan are always stereotyped and joked about in every gathering and every conversation that takes a turn towards driving. The members of the female sex constantly have to make an extra effort to prove that “they CAN drive”.

Here are 15 stereotypes that society has put on female drivers that are utterly misogynistic:


1. Never trust a woman with indicators. If the indicator says left, they will definitely turn right.

For all those, who have faith in these stereotypes, please stop spreading the hate. According to Norway’s Institute of Transport Economics, researchers have concluded that women are, after all, better drivers than men. Sooo *sips tea* BYE!
