    Compared to all other nations Constitution of India guarantees to all its citizens the right to freedom of speech and expression. People's everyday lives are shaped through language and communication. They choose what to do with their time based on opinions and ideals formed through the discourse they are exposed to and Criticism is an inevitable part of the environment that surrounds us. Criticism is painful and praise feels good for both men and women. What other people think affects women more dramatically though. Women are relationship oriented. When people don’t like what they are up to, it can feel like disharmony or a break in their relationships, which they deeply value. Women pick up more information about what others think. A host of studies show women are more adept at reading facial expressions and body language than men. For most of history, women couldn’t protect themselves through legal, political, or financial means. Research shows that when women get negative feedback, it tends to be more personal than the feedback men get. It can also be more angry and even violent or vulgar, especially in our internet age.
