Armeena Khan's Question About What It Means To Be A “Good Woman” Has Started A Heated Debate Online

By Ramsha Bhatti | 15 Sep, 2018

Conversation around the position of women in our society are highly imperative. In light of this, Armeena Khan took to Twitter to ask a thought-provoking question.

She questioned her followers about their thoughts on a “good woman.”

The question actually focuses on what people think contributes to the qualities of a “good woman”? Is she good if she is a working lady or does being docile give her that credit?

Since the question was meant for research purposes, Pakistanis did not hold back AT ALL in expressing their thoughts on the matter. 

And hence, the contorted ideas regarding the defining factor which makes a woman “good” were finally brought to the surface.

It is sad to see that even in times as progressive as today, people still believe that a woman doing choolha chowki is the personification of what a woman needs to be.  

Surprisingly, people actually had other views.

Men and women, alike, were of the opinion that women can play both roles effectively and can be equally good in both. People emphasized the fact that be it a working lady or a housewife, a woman who can maintain her balance in every aspect of her life is good.

Some stated that values and morals are the determining factors.

Some answers indicated that perhaps, some people are questioning the misogynistic mindset that exists within our society.

People also didn’t hold back their resentment for culturally defined gender roles.

However, the crux of the debate initiated by Armeena Khan is best encapsulated in this tweet:

I believe the question was meant to help people understand and realize the fact there is no hard and fast rule to define what makes a good woman. A woman’s worth is not defined by her career choices or marital status. At the end of it all, none of us have the right to judge someone else, so let us try to practice that more. Let people be how they are and do not try to judge them.

On that note, what makes a person “good” in your opinion? Do you think Armeena Khan asked the right question? Could it have been amended? Share your thoughts on the matter.
