We live in a world where Tripple Talaq is still frivolously used to divorce women.
Where women are being pimped & sold in the name of religion, we call them Devdasi's.
They're also being used & abused in the name of more religious scams - Nikah Halala.
A 12 yr old is raped on her way to Independence Day celebrations. Happy Independence to you too. You'll hate Britishers & Chinese & Pakistani's for everything they've done to you - but you fail to see the harm people in your own country cause you. Your blind patriotism is all yours to keep.
Where the people in power think the biggest issues concerning women are our reproductive organs, the ability to afford Sindoor/Bindi tax-free & fulfill our roles as wives & mothers before anything else. #MaternityLeave #LahuKaLagaan
A World where creating human life consists of two but contraceptives are invented only for one. Because obviously.
Where child marriage is illegal but still continues as a cultural tradition.
We look down upon women from lower castes but for Prostitution & Slavery - they're on top of the list.
Where in the name of religion - patriarchy & misogyny is 'protection & care'. Speaking of protection, we cage our women to protect them from Beasts outside, yet most girls are raped by someone in their own family.
Where Marital Rape is NOT a crime.
You speak of a woman's purity & power as of a Goddess, Bharat Maata, Mother Nature - but femininity is looked down upon & the only go-to for humans to insult each other involve them fucking their mothers & sisters.
When do we ever refer to a woman without stating her relationship with a man? She is someone's sister, mother, daughter, wife... A world where we are so busy protecting the strength & power of men, we forget that men too can be sensitive & vulnerable. That not all men are answerable for the well being of an entire family.
So busy trying to suppress women that we overlook the crimes/rapes committed on men cause we're no longer Men vs Women, we're a bunch of human beings fighting a fight to sustain a culture & history that oppresses all of us from being who we choose to be.
Yet you so ignorantly ask, why I need feminism?
