The fight is to attain gender equality; not to topple the patriarchy to make room for a matriarchy. The fight is to attain race equality; not to topple the white supremacy to make room for a black one. That would be just replacing one injustice with another. As we fight all the injustice in the world, we may have just forgotten that.
Violence against women has unfortunately become the everyday reality of our country. We have grown used to the crimes, as they are often politicised. We all are aware that the patriarchal mindset is very much prevalent everywhere in our country and we tend to ignore the sexist comments we hear on a daily basis. It’s time we stop being okay with it.
