Gender inequality, Patriarchy, and Women empowerment are few of the Global issues that are of great significance, as they affect almost half of the human population. We say we have worked upon them, and have also improved the scenario a lot, but all I have to ask is, have we? We make posters, paint walls, participate in rallies saying that we are contributing to generating awareness amongst women, to take up a stand for themselves and represent themselves. But the unsaid or unknown truth is after 10 days of that rally, things go back to normal. The women again are forced to work inside of the house, having no representation in the outside world and having authority only over the domestic duties. They, again, are suppressed by the male figure in the house and the determination to free themselves, cools off. To be honest, it's not just the females who are limited to domestic works. We say, my mother goes to the office, she earns her salary and therefore, she is an independent woman. Well, when we compare her to the other forced house-wives, she is. But soon after she leaves her office and comes back home, she is no more independent than the previous example. The woman is again ordered to make tea, prepare food, make dinner, look after the baby, the baby's home-work and 100's of such things. I have seen in houses, I have been to, women being ORDERED by the male, and that too without politeness, it's with pride and honor as if the male holds the supreme authority, one can compare it to a dictatorship where the people have no say and have to follow what the leader commands them to. Then I wonder, are women moving towards getting empowered? If your answer is yes, then why do 88% of working women also cope up with the household duties and are not assisted by their husbands? The real truth we all run away from is NOTHING IS HAPPENING, IT'S LIKE WE ARE STILL. A woman needs to be the one that stands up for herself, she has to be the one that makes sure that alongside love, her husband gives her the respect she deserves. She has to fight for what is absolute equilibrium in a household and to do all this, she needs the support of other women. So, in my opinion, that can be different from any others', I believe standing up for oneself when it's the most required (when being suppressed) is way more "RIGHT" that just shouting out phrases in marches and instead of showing your support in those marches, it's better to help your mother, your sister, your aunt, your friend, who suffers every day inside the closed walls and whos cry for help doesn't reach anyone from the outside.
