PS: women

PN: when will people learn to calculate basic minimum subsistence salary? in a city where a decent house in a reasonably decent locality is valued at minimum six thousand in rent money and twenty thousand at sale value, why do they not see that minimum salary should start at three times that sum? why do highly skilled women still get only one and half lakhs a year? or even less? why do they exploit women? why do they devalue their teachers? domain experts?

why do women not see that they are not supposed to be driving their husband’s car but should have enough to be able to afford one on their own? why don’t women feel embarrassed and ashamed at being treated like shit?

why does a woman not protest when a man says to her that Supreme court ruling is, one gets paid for only twenty six days of a month? why is it that no one questions why we should forego 48 days worth of salary? why do women not ask questions? why do women not understand economics? why do women economist don’t get together and fix it for us?

why do women employers not think of best practices of employment and employee welfare?

why do they deduct 11% of a woman’s salary every month as tax when Government rule says she is entitled to rebates being a woman earning less than 1.8 lakhs a year? why does nobody ever protest about what is wrong? why are women so weak and fearful in this country? how can such women produce strong sons if they are so bovine and clueless and unaware of their self worth?

when you undervalue yourself can you really appreciate the value of good things of life? or raise a child well? teach him the right values? or be a good TEACHER????

shudder to think of what they must be doing to the woman that works as day labourer.

I often think of running away somewhere saner … women DESERVE better!

  1. Perhaps a good start might be for each woman to start asking such questions of her employer, her parents, her husband – herself. Rather than wondering why other women don’t ask these questions.

    Obviously, such a strategy is fraught with its own risks, but it is more proactive than simply complaining about others.

    • when talking about it doesn’t get results, you try one more time by writing about it, 1) so they can try again, 2) find like minded women that might support with information etc

  2. @ Rolling : You can get a tax rebate from the tax people? Share housing with friends to cut costs? If you can not beat them at least think innovative 🙂

  3. It’s not just like that in India; it’s everywhere. People become content where they are and don’t want to strive for anything better. It’s not just women either – I’ve seen many men who sit back and expect their wives to take care of them because they’re too lazy to lift a finger and do something with their lives. (Not sure why the wives stay with them… but that’s another matter.) People have no ambition. The only way to make your life better is to take a stand and do something about it.

    • yes, Mike, Indian women are diffident, reluctant to stand up for their rights, they think it is unattractive, unfeminine to know things(!), tend to pretend that these things do not matter, lack solidarity due to lack of good education and awareness. In comparison, blogs of Western women, indicate better awareness of their rights.
