A comment has been made on equality and whether it matters. Is it because the questioner is a man? It depends whose ox is being gored. Equality is difficult to achieve but one has to accept that we are progressing towrds such a goal and Western civilization has contributed more in the recent centuries. The change in women's status from being honored to becoming sub-servient occurs in Manu's laws. It might have worsened during the Mugal rule, since I feel purdah was not in vogue proir to it. Don't uou think that our samprdayas must change to right such wrongs?
