Why We Need Feminism in 2021 #26

Ever noticed the women of the house bustling about during festivities, functions, preparing so much for the rituals, going about the house as if with wheels on feet, buying stuff, cleaning and decorating houses, making sweets and delicacies, getting ready in glittery dresses, pasting smiles.

But when it comes to the actual ritual, specially in cases of ‘pooja’ the responsinilities somehow and very conveniently transfer to the men. How and why! I know, I am definitely going to get answers on beliefs amd culture, and faith and….. but somehow I don’t get the concept.

This is probably just too Indian. I do not know much about other cultures and cannot put a finger on them. But from what I know of my culture it is just there in front of me, and I don’t like it.

#qotd Can you name a ritual or any other instance when you see this behaviour?

  1. it happens across the world, men must dominate and control … women, households, rituals. Some Christian faiths allow female preachers but they admit they are not treated equally or get the same privileges.

    Recently posted a book review and while responding to comments realised it’s the first book in my memory where the protagonists are women and the men are in secondary or support roles. We have a long way to go and women need to accept 50% of the blame … we must expect respect and loyalty! We must delegate them more responsibility … firstly as mothers and then in our relationships.

    Men wouldn’t have such expectations if their mothers had taught them respect …
