Hush Hush: Is A Warning To Women Daring To Challenge Powerful Men

Prime series Hush Hush reveals how women are still perceived as the weaker sex, and consequences they can face if they refuse to stay weak

In my last blog about infertility, I didn’t reveal the name of the series from which I got the inspiration to write, as I didn’t complete watching it while I wrote that piece. My blog is influenced by the end of the same series.

I was watching “Hush Hush” on Amazon Prime, and I must say it’s a pretty interesting one.

Minor spoilers ahead

Just to give a gist, the series is about four best friends and one of them is murdered because she decides to expose some of the influential people who were involved in trafficking of girls, and she was also being convicted for the heinous crime. The rest 3 friends interrogate and dig in, bearing an endeavour to prove her innocence and not letting her sacrifice go to waste.

It is still believed that women are built to stay dependent on men.

Though I don’t want to break the suspense but still I would like to mention, the culprit turns out to be an influential man, and he says,

“The evolved, self-actualized women will never accept that they are physically, mentally and emotionally weak; they don’t stand a chance against men. They always need the support of their husband, son, father or brothers. Their strength isn’t their own, it is borrowed from us.”

Honestly, a lot of you might feel this is not relevant here, but for me, it is.

Is the result of crossing the limit really an end?

I know it’s just another series, but the message it conveyed at the end is that if a woman tries to go against men, the result can be really worse. In the series, Ishi (the character’s name) tried to expose the so-called powerful men, and her life was ended.

Today also, if a woman tries to speak up, especially when she is expected to remain quiet, she is considered to be rude or insane. A woman is expected to follow the same paths created for her since ages, and if she decides to take a diversion, everyone makes a dead end for her.

Season 2 is awaited.
