Violence at Home
Domestic violence has become norm of the day in developing countries like Pakistan. Here, patriarchal patterns are strongly set by the society. From the day one of the birth of the girl child - it is considered that now she is in dire need of male member to get protection to move in her own state and society. It clearly shows that they snatch their right to move for anything or everything. This is how, majority of the women choose to stay home to be poor and uneduacated and stick with orthodox societal trends. This thing helps them to cut her wings even before they grew up.
Fortunately, if you get rid of this scenario you become part of it by getting married in this type of family. And this very unacceptable thing happen to me at the time of career settlement. My expectations were high from my husband and the the extended family as I have been promised to continue my studies and struggle for better future. Alas, everything shattered in days ahead even in less than a month. I got to know that I am no where after completion of MS in international Relations from well reputed university. I felt exhausted while staying home from kitchen to room and room to kitchen. As I meant to cook food for everyone at home. Even then i have never been respected and bothered in any family matter. Meanwhile, I applied for different kind of jobs at national or international level. Luckily, I got a job in private educational setup as subject specialist senior teacher. Financial independence became my greatest obsession while staying home with people of opposite nature.
