According to Wikipedia, Feminism is a range of social movements, political movements, and ideologies that share a common goal: to define, establish, and achieve the political, economic, personal, and social equality of the sexes.

Feminism is all about triggering women against their family - is what people think in India. They are seen as frustrating balls who can destroy social stature. From the very beginning, women are seen as a liability to the family. A girl is hardly given a chance to survive in Indian society. In the wake of feminism, women are entering in all spheres and proving their capacity. Women are paid less as compared to a male employee. Still, there are such things need to be improved to ensure gender equality. Feminists don't target men. They just do the work to uplift the status of women in society no matter what comes in their way.

When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch.

A girl is given the responsibilities of taking care of her cousins in childhood. In early teens, she enters the kitchen and starts serving her family. After some time when she qualifies to carry the weight of another family, she gets married. She spends her life serving others and depending on others. Patriarchy has been a safe zone for women in families. It's like men are the decision makers and women are meant to follow them. If they resist, cases like domestic violence come into the light. If a woman dares to work outside rather taking care of her home, she is thrown out of the race by society.

The only fight of feminists is to open up the outside world for them. Women should not be devoid of their rights. They are not made to follow orders. They should be given opportunities to prove their skills. They are not given an equal share in property and wealth by their family. It has been conceptualized on the grounds of their inferior status. A serious concern for feminism is negligible in India. There were certain waves of feminism in India but they didn't make any difference in the mentality and approaches of people.

We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.

Dropping shackles of patriarchy will be very fruitful for the women who live behind the curtains. They are feeling suffocated by this lifestyle. They have the right to live freely, only they need is our support. We need to join hands and take a stand to establish feminism from its roots.
