There's no end to rules in a girls life. Don't sing, don't dance, you'll shame us. Don't walk like that, people will stare. Keep your eyes down, what will people say? Don't breathe, your heaving chest will attract attention! Don't wear lipstick, you'll have an affair! Don't wear jeans, you'll create a scandal! I want to ask the authorities, what exactly will happen? Why does our freedom scare you so?
