    do you think what we women face is just natural..??

    we are born to parents who live in a society which considers the birth of a girl child to be a bad omen..girl children are killed with no mercy.. the dowry system that prevails in our country india, has taken many lives... marriage of a girl child has become a business where you pay money and get your daughter married..

    the education given to a girl child is of no use after her marriage..we live in a society which teaches that girls are married to do household and look after children..married women going for work outside is a sin!!! y do the same people who say this, educate their girl child then? am afraid...all this is taking place in the educated and well off families..

    a mother who carries the infant in her for 9 months and delivers the child has no say in the decision making of the house... a child is named after her/his father... y?? y not the mother? there are documents which ask only for the father's name as though its only the father who is everything of the house..we need to do something about it.. the girl gets her father as last name wen born and then husband's name after marriage.. y tolerate this discrimination...cant she have an identity of her own?? whether the wife works or not...she should have an equal say in everything...

    dear friends

    this is in india that happens...and women are absolutely considered some kinda slaves... can we do something about this?? i quote an incident

    When I wrote my Mother's Name on my PAN application form, my form was rejected and I was asked to write only my Father's name. Though I had showed them the Supreme Court judgement copy of Gita Hariharan Vs RBI, where the Apex court ruled that Mother's Name also should be accepted, my PAN application was still rejected... "Our belief is that if a woman cannot give her name to her child, then she cannot be truly empowered. For that to happen, the forms that require for just the father's name to be written have to change first and it could begin with the PAN form," Why are we practicing gender discrimination? What makes the father more special?" Yet, despite that Supreme Court's rectification of the anomaly, the stumbling block remains: in the form of paper or 'forms' that are required to be filled out for everything from buying a bond in the child's name to getting a PAN number. we are still living in a false world which believes father is everything for the family..It is a irony that we are now in 21st century and we call ourself developed, but till now it's sad to say that deep ...
