There are a lot of underlying issues that men can't see with the male-dominated society as they are the ones with privilege and the ones with privilege can't see the fault lines in such cases.
1) Working women no matter how mauch they are exhausted is still expected to do the household chore because it is an understood duty of woman (a gender role). Whereas males after coming from office rest as if they have done all the tasks in the world. Ans sharing bare-minimum things they want appreciation for which women are never given any praise.
2) In many families girls are given education but only to some extent, spending more money on their higher education is considered a wasteful expense. Especially if the girl wants to pursue a professional degree course.
3) Talking about women health-related issues in our society is taboo, especially if it is related to mensuration, pregnancy or any other diseases. Women health is such a neglected issue, and women taking a rest for such a thing is a big deal in a normal Indian household. Whereas a man can take such rest at will and the whole house is at their disposal.
4) All the birth control measures are expected to be done by women, Man is never expected to take responsibility for such an issue. In fact, it is a topic rarely discussed because the whole onus falls on women and any kind of harm to man's masculinity is feared and women have to go through various procedures and take pills whole life.
5) Any assertive man in any organisation who is progressing at a high pace is appreciated for his hard work whereas when a woman progress at such a rate her character assassination is the easiest office gossip and talk. Her assertiveness is seen as a character that women should not have.
6) Maritial rapes are very common in India but again people are silent about it. And even laws against it are opposed by men because there is a fear that many might be fake cases. And someone doesn't even understand such a thing as marital rape because they feel they have a complete right over their wives bodies.
- Then there are cases where a 19-year-old girl in Haryana was killed for wearing Jeans by her brother and grandfather.
- Honour killing in the name of protecting the honour of the family.
- Domestic violence (even in the case of very educated individuals)
- time limits on girls coming home and college because of fear of males around ( since society is not safe)
The realities of the society we don't want to see just because we see few modern women in an urban space. Whereas rural India is still the same and even in urban areas there are a lot of things that are very common.
When everyone knows that decisions in Indian households are still made by men only and in some cases, only woman's opinions are asked.
This is not at all equality but there are positive steps in society because of education some girls and women have got voices to be vocal and men things male domination has ended. Until and unless women have right over their bodies, about their bodies and what they want to wear how they want to live it is not at all end of male domination.
My views might feel way too much radical to many male members of this forum but these are realities rarely comes to the fore but are part of feminist literature and classroom debates only.
