Should girls still be brought up as ‘Pati Parameshwar’ and he can do no wrong?
The kind of abuse parents ENCOURAGE their daughters to accept is almost unbelievable. In this educated 2013, why do parents of engineers, MBAs, doctors….accept the fact that ‘men are men..so they can HIT their wives’….is this not appalling?
What gets people into the mind set ‘what will others say’ and such kinda shit?
This post is just meant to bring ‘normal’ people’s attention to a social malaise like domestic abuse. I also hear on the other side that all the laws are here to protect women – and so some smart women are misusing the law to trap decent middle class men into agonising, painful and financially expensive relationships. That of course is just as bad as the men illtreating their wives, but domestic abuse is terrible.
What in the world makes women teach their children (daughters) that it is all right to be hit by their husbands? I mean in a society where women have held such high posts including that of the Prime Minister – and now an all controlling UPA chariman’s post..why do MIDDLE CLASS women feel powerless? Though this is a greater problem in North India, it is not as though it does not happen in other parts of the country….
What can society do to reduce this? Simple – recruit a disproportionately high number of women in the police force – I mean really huge number of women should be recruited in the police force, armed forces, etc. A lot of this recruitment should happen from the smaller villages of UP, Bihar, Rajasthan, Haryana and Punjab. Exactly the states which do not treat their women well.
Suddenly and overnight the position of the woman will not change, but the women will (perhaps) understand the fellow women and thus be more willing to walk into a police station and lodge a complaint. It might also push other women to get educated hoping to get a ‘sarkari naukri’. Women with jobs in the police force will not be subject to harrasment (let us hope!). Similarly their sisters, friends, etc. will also get some kinda protection…
