When you grow up around women who worry about the character & integrity of their children, who tell you that your worth is not dependent on what dress you fit into, and the importance of being financially independent, you grow up to be a liberated woman. https://t.co/CefVU2hWlK
I grew up with women that bothered with neither. They worried about water shortage, power cut, lack of childcare, and job security. I grew up to be survivor. Liberation came later. https://t.co/Hujs9g70xs
Many men also came forward to show their disagreement with Rujuta’s claim:
At my home the rules are if my mother makes the morning tea my father makes the breakfast. If my mother cooks the daal then my father or I had to cook the rice. My mother is not here to give her free labour to my father & me to feel liberated. She has no time for this. https://t.co/D0bQmTClN3
Ironically women in India are advised often not to use modern household items like Mixie grinder, washing machine and vaccum cleaner and do household chores in traditional way as shown in your tweet so that they stay in shape and they will be priced commodity in marriage market.
To be liberated means to be free, to be free means to have economic freedom, to have economic freedom usually means a good education. A good education means enlightened parents. We can solve this problem in one generation if we put our minds to it. We can enjoy the chutney then
In the 21st century, the question – ‘What liberates Women?’ doesn’t have an easy answer. As different things can make different women feel liberated and empowered. We believe it’s a high time that society lets women themselves decide what liberates them, rather than expecting them to follow age-old stereotypes.
