Rules are not made in the heavenMost of the time the rules for women are made by the the prevailing  mindset. This particular mindset try to tell the women  what to wear, how to live and above all how to behave according to their age. I would like to highlight certain typical  comments by people regarding the women fashion and style and how it should be conveniently ignored.
