The inspiration behind this piece is drawn from my personal experiences of being born into a modern household with strict traditional values, where the females in my family were primarily raised to assume the role of caretakers. I often found solace in journaling, which led to a series of letters addressed to my mother, filled with both rage and questions. One statement from these letters that resonated with me was, “There is nothing I understand better than what it means to be female.”

Despite the letters and journals, I discovered a shared experience with other women, realizing that I was not alone in facing the demanding mental and physical aspects of this situation. Motivated by a desire to convey a profound understanding of femininity, I sought to explore how this shared experience, customary in my life and the lives of many other women, involves a broad range of dimensions, including biological, social, cultural, and personal elements.

My exploration ultimately led me to delve into the concept of identity. Immersed in a sea of questions about why females in traditional households are expected to be the cornerstone of all domestic responsibilities, I specifically refer to it as a “house” rather than a “home” because the environment never truly felt like a place of comfort to me. While I was taught what to do, I was never guided to comprehend the reasons behind these expectations, leaving me feeling confused and resentful of my immediate identity as a woman. At times, I found myself yearning to have been born a man—someone who would be taken care of rather than burdened with these societal expectations.
