Yes, the situation of a girl has changed now. We show that we don’t discriminate; maybe the termination of a pregnancy is not done on the basis of sex, but this is not the end of discrimination. In a modern family, when a girl child is born, everyone is okay with it, but not as happy when a boy child is born.
Suppose that both husband and wife are working outside, but when they come home, everyone except for the woman has to do household chores, and if men do the chores, then they’re doing a favour. In patriarchy, men think that it is a woman’s duty to serve them.
If, for the continuity of nature, both man and woman are equally important, then why can’t we give them equal status, equal opportunities and equal responsibility?
