    Today’s young women are caught between generations, forced to choose from women who were housewives and those who had a full-time career. What they lack are role models of women who embody the principles of empowerment.

    Here are 5 women of Indian origin, who became role models of empowerment when they decided to carve a niche for themselves in a man’s world.

    Women in India constitute nearly 50% of its population. According to 1991 census, there were 40.6 crores of women as against 43.7 crores of men. Roughly, there are 929 women for every 1000 men.

    Man considers woman to be frail and weak by nature. She is shorter and delicate compared to the strongly build man. But man forgets that a woman is made so, so to play a specific fro in nature which a man cannot play, that is the role of the mother. In intelligence both are equal. Man is aggressive and emotional. A woman is patient, calm and receptive. She can bear more pain and has more tolerance than a man. She is stronger in conviction and in perseverance. Yet women all over the world are playing a secondary role only.

    The challenge to unequal gender difference was mounted anew in the 1910s when women in Japan’s “second wave feminism” set about to oppose the NeoConfucian ideology of “good wife, wise mother.” One, Hiratsuka Haruko (pen name Raicho), in 1911 founded the feminist magazine Seito (Bluestocking), where its contributors considered broad social issues such as freedom of love and marriage. Not surprisingly, the magazine was often censored and banned.

    Ultimately, the need to develop a sense of solidarity between male and female peasants as both subjects of oppression resulted in criticizing concerns relating to women alone. Such was the fate of author Ding Ling, the most prominent female writer of her generation, whose attack on the sexist attitudes of her comrades resulted in suppression. The state also failed to deal with opposition to the progressive changes embodied in the Marriage Law of 1950, which granted young people the right to choose their own marriage partners, and women to initiate divorce and to inherit property.

    The Rig Vedic Women in India enjoyed high status in society. Their condition was good. The women were provided opportunity to attain high intellectual and spiritual standard. There were many women Rishis during this period. Though monogamy was mostly common, the richer section of the society indulged in polygamy. There was no sati system or early marriage.

    But from enjoying free and esteemed positions in the Rig-Vedic society, women started being discriminated against since the Later-Vedic period in education and other rights and facilities. Child marriage, widow burning, the purdah and polygamy further worsened the women’s position.

    India is a hierarchical society. Whether in north India or south India, Hindu or Muslim, urban or village, virtually all things, people, and social groups are ranked according to various essential qualities. Although India is a political democracy, notions of complete equality are seldom evident in daily life.

    Societal hierarchy is evident in caste groups, amongst individuals, and in family and kinship groups. Castes are primarily associated with Hinduism, but caste-like groups also exist among Muslims, Indian, Christians, and other religious communities. Within most villages or towns, everyone knows the relative rankings of each locally represented caste, and behavior is constantly shaped by this knowledge.

    Upper class women, rich commoners ( italian merchants) especially, often managed vast properties for their husbands, who spent most of their time travelling. There are literally hundreds of thousands of letters from rich men to their wives with various instructions about business deals that were to be conducted, as well as household management. Remember that a household in those days was something completely different than today. A household could include hundreds of servants, several buildings, storage spaces, apprentices, and workers (who would often live in one of their masters houses). It takes a lot of inventory management skills, book keeping, personnel management, and communication. Seeing to all of that was often left to the wives while the men dealt with the more dangerous task of travelling and securing new deals. Noblewomen were more sheltered, but when their husband was gone to war or to fulfill any other duty, such as to attend his lord to offer advice or accompany him to travel, their wives were left to manage manors and estates. This involved settling disputes, holding court, collecting dues from the serfs on the noble s land, managing finances, and managing servants and soldiers. Always in their husbands name of course. Just because women didn t have authority in name doesn t mean they didn t exercise enormous power.

    The functionalist idea theorizes that that everyone has a role in society, and that their role has been honed to perfection over years of evolution, and that everyone playing their role contributes to the smooth functioning of society (this would be a non conflict perspective). So a functionalist perspective of women s role in society would try to ascribe any and all so-called gender roles to evolutionary benefits or mandates. For example, they would believe that if a woman wants to be a SAHM, its because evolutionarily speaking, during caveman days, women stayed around the home taking care of children while men hunted for food.

    Over the last few years, our counselling practice has seen an unusually high number of people with difficulty adjusting in their marriage. Often anger against each other is the most typical symptom. Anger is always an expression of hurt and pain within. This is very important to understand and acknowledge. The hurt must be soothed for the anger to be gently washed away.

    Often for the elderly members of the family, the woman’s traditional role – that of a homemaker is of primary importance.

    In traditional Korean society, women s roles were confined to the home. From a young age, women were taught the virtues of subordination and endurance to prepare for their future roles as wife and mother. Women, in general, could not participate in society as men did, and their role was limited to household matters.

    The situation began to change with the opening of the country to the outside world during the late 19th century. During this period modern schools were introduced, mostly by Western Christian missionaries. Some of these schools were founded with the specific goal of educating women. These educated women began to engage in the arts, teaching, religious work, and enlightening other women. Women also took part in the independence movement against the Japanese occupation, and displayed no less vigor, determination, and courage than the men.

    The challenge to unequal gender difference was mounted anew in the 1910s when women in Japan’s “second wave feminism” set about to oppose the NeoConfucian ideology of “good wife, wise mother.” One, Hiratsuka Haruko (pen name Raicho), in 1911 founded the feminist magazine Seito (Bluestocking), where its contributors considered broad social issues such as freedom of love and marriage. Not surprisingly, the magazine was often censored and banned.

    Ultimately, the need to develop a sense of solidarity between male and female peasants as both subjects of oppression resulted in criticizing concerns relating to women alone. Such was the fate of author Ding Ling, the most prominent female writer of her generation, whose attack on the sexist attitudes of her comrades resulted in suppression. The state also failed to deal with opposition to the progressive changes embodied in the Marriage Law of 1950, which granted young people the right to choose their own marriage partners, and women to initiate divorce and to inherit property.
