From young age on onwards, girls are advised to adjust in every situation no matter what. They taught to adjust to the fact that their brother would always be treated better than them, they are advised that they’ll always be the ones responsible if anything wrong happens to them. And that is exactly what happens after a woman’s marriage too. From her maternal place itself, she is taught to compromise within her marriage and fulfil the whims of her husband doesn’t matter whether at the stake of her own well being. And she is obviously forced to compromise at her in-laws’ place.
This is the disgusting patriarchal mindset of the society. The patriarchy has made it so that only a woman has to compromise in every tiny thing, be it her job or her marriage. The patriarchy serves everything to men on a silver platter while women are supposed to keep adjusting and compromising. And that is exactly why we need feminism!
