Patriarchy and the System of Society
Patriarchy is the root basis of extreme discrimination between two genders; male and female. It is so deep rooted in the mindset of ancestries that demands obvious amount of literature and education to alter the thought process. Patriarchy gives a meaning of male dominancy and male identified society. All the legal, economical, domestic and religious decisions are based entirely on the men of the society. Women are not considered to beholder of same power as men. It is embedded in the culture to follow the norms of the society which have always been patriarchal. Women rights are neglected in male dominant rule. Even if there is women rule of kingdom, patriarchy wouldn’t just end or finish, it would still be recognized as women doing job of a man.
Women are constantly discriminate on gender difference. These stereotypical male centered phenomenon cannot be eradicated overnight but with awareness on the subject can bring a positive change. Patriarchal society has been flourished since forever and people has recently started talking about and comprehending the sensitivity of the issue.
Feminism is the voice against inequality. There are a lot of issues to be highlighted or to be changed for women rights. Women are not considered equal to men is the most problematic situation. Under the influence of male dominancy, male are usually exploit the opportunity to raise violence against common, innocent women of society. The construction of masculinity and femininity has been misjudged from long time now. “No wonder male religious leaders so often say that humans were born in sin—because we were born to female creatures. Only by obeying the rules of the patriarchy can we be reborn through men. No wonder priests and ministers in skirts sprinkle imitation birth fluid over our heads, give us new names, and promise rebirth into everlasting life.” Gloria Steinem,
