It is often said that the patriarchal society is restricting the freedom of women. Women who fights to shake of the chains of restrictions have become a stereotypical image. But isn’t it necessary that we enquire more deeply about this topic?. It’s not wrong to say that a man doesn’t inhibit a woman’s freedom. But there are some other factors too which has the same effect. And the.most important of it is WOMEN itself.The way a mother raises her son and daughter is quite different. A boy is left free to wander outside till late at night but at the same time a girl is supposed to be home by evening. Maybe it’s their fear of the evil hands that may fall upon their daughter. Even in the household the age to use and own a phone is different for a boy and a girl. After the shocking gang rape in Delhi, even women were blaming the poor soul for being out at night and for her ‘improper’ dressing. It’s an often criticized that girls are told not to get raped but boys are never told not to rape!
Another ill fated thing with women or girls is that they are ready to forefeit their dreams and lives with pleasure. They fail to raise their voice against the injustices happening with them. India is not behind in the statics of child marriage. If one girl had rasied her voice against this social evil , things could have been different. A good popuation of Indian girls let them enslaved by men. Thus we can conclude that women itself is a major factor who restricts her own freedom to a greater extend.
