New Delhi: Monday witnessed upheaval of a new kind of feminist movement on social media. Attacking the existing pre-conceived notions of an ideal bride, women from across the country are boldly embracing those habits which the society has labelled unladylike.
Attacking the set characteristics of a marriageable girl, under the hashtag ‘NotShaadiMaterial’ women from different walks are posting pictures with sarcastic reasons which according to the prevailing stereotypes makes them unfit for marriage.

The multitude of tweets flooding in, reveal how the femme-brigade is tired of fitting themselves in the image of the ideal woman sketched by the society that is largely patriarchal.
