Gender inequality is so rampant even in our court verdicts – will this situation ever change? What can we, as women, do to deal with all this?
My thoughts go to the recent Supreme Court verdict that had made news in social media.
I am just repeating below the statement of court below in case some of you don’t know yet.
I was surprised to hear this verdict even in this era where we all combat for egalitarianism and social justice. Are our value systems really progressing or deteriorating? Not a sign of constructive change in our social ethos.
Of course it is the duty of wife to look after her husband’s parents also and she should not create any resentment in the mind of husband against his parents which is right way. But that doesn’t end the obligation to take care of her parents too. Why this partiality for two genders?.
I do have some questions to our supreme board or group of people who have passed this judgement.
Whatever happens, it is always considered a woman’s fault! Are the legal systems of our country blind towards women’s issues?
