This XX mark is just a "symbol" that shows women are discriminated in almost every society, most places in the world from the moment they are born by religion, culture, customs, traditions, stereotypes no matter what they do and who they are and it's much harder for them to manage in life. The situation is slowly changing and there are places where women have better prospects and chances but still women earn less than men, face sexism, are molested and forced to reach many "expectations".
Of course women can break out of discrimination pattern! It's not easy and it requires a lot of courage, determination and sacrifice and overcoming your fear even for something that should be "normal". As you mentioned, it'd be better if more ladies were motivated to break the ice but hey look, they do support each other whenever possible -> [link]
. The problem is when they lose their hope and accept the situation and are left without help, trying to adapt and living their life without any better prospects.
Thank you for sharing your opinion, have a nice day!
