The world has come a long way in terms of gender equality - more and more women are taking up senior positions in companies and there are even stay-at-home dads nowadays.

The views on male and female roles in society have relaxed but there are still so many communities that enforce those ideologies on citizens.

One young girl has spoken up about gender equality in villages. A video of the young "queen" - as she is described by Boity - has surfaced online.

The girl opens up about the roles in her community regarded as male and female and how they are affecting their lives.

She revealed she would want to learn how to herd cattle but it's something not taught to girls because women have to learn how to cook and clean instead.

The inspiring young girl adds that girls should be able to learn how to look after livestock, whereas boys - who want to - should be taught how to do chores in houses.

Briefly.co.za saw the video gathered more than 52 100 views and it even got the attention of SA celeb Boity.

Boity shared the clip on her Twitter page and she captioned the video:

"Wow! The Queen has spoken!"
