POPxo is back with yet another “womanly” campaign: #WomenShould. The idea finds its roots in “The Autocomplete Truth”, an incredible video produced by UN Women. Following this, we decided to ask people from different genders, age groups, backgrounds and perspectives to give us a sincere response to our question: What should women do or be like?


What we came up with is a compilation of some amusing, realistic, prudish, sexist, modern, liberal, pragmatic, contradictory as well as dismal viewpoints. Read on!
