Both my sister and I have been taught to do household chores at the age of seven, while my brother learned them at age ten. My mother assigns me more chores, but dismisses my brother from his share of household duties. When I questioned, she would respond, “How can you not learn to do chores as a girl?” It was until a few years ago that I realized that I am not the only in this sexist ideology of girls carrying more family responsibilities.

When the world marched on January 21st, 2017, I stayed at home. The Women’s March was a march for issues I cared about but I couldn’t bring myself to go because I had developed a fear of speaking. It was not that I was scared to say the wrong thing but rather that I might say the right thing in a place that wasn’t mine. Born as a citizen in a country of equals, it was hard to see myself as luckier than anyone else but born as the child of an immigrant I was often told to recognize my luck and privilege.

It would be nice to have a brief outlook on the experiences of women on the island Mauritius. As in probably almost all societies, women in Mauritius were not placed on a top position, be it in the family or at work.

On the other hand, boys were born to be future breadwinners of their family.
