How are women leading in this Patriarchal societyIf we agree or not, we are living in a male dominant society, a society which is almost controlled by men and their thoughts. However, we can find multiple changes in the same aspect. Women are playing an equivalent role now and has been holding big positions altogether. But the status seem to be almost the same if we talk in general terms, is it because of the femininity in us, we have created such sort of surroundings. Because we think men are great.
There was a stupid tendency earlier that a girl has to look beautiful in order to get married and a girl used to follow that, with a thought that how will the guy think about her in that case. See, how the thought changed by the girl herself. So, it is our own thoughts that changes everything.
Today I was watching this video, about a girl who faced the worse acid attack and survived out of it. Her name is 'Laxmi Agarwal'. She talked about how she faced that terrible moment of her life and then it was so painful for her to come out of that situation. She said just one line"He threw acid on my face not on my dreams". Her dedication and positive attitude was empowering. She is one example among the great women of our society.
We can take the great example of Smriti Irani, the political leader of our country. She has been an actress, a model and currently is the Information and Broadcasting and Textiles minister in the Government of India. She once made a speech in Parliament which was out breaking and talked all the issues in our country and how they are not being dealt properly. A great lady of the hour.
We can take multiple examples like Sania Mirza - the great tennis player and Saina Nehwal in the field of Badminton. Many more women role models to come. They will keep empowering women in all terms.
Even if the thoughts have improved in our country, but even today a women face daily challenges to live a normal and easy going life. A women staying in a village still have to undergo the same ill-mannered behaviour from her husband, while in some cases, the family do not understand. Education to girl child needs to be inculcated in every parent mind, to create awareness and make them realize the importance of a women or a girl in life. Women's empowerment still play a major role towards the development of Indian society.
