Indian women that are mothers are primarily responsible for raising their daughters to the gender socialization culture in India. According to Hindu doctrine, women where created to provide company for the men, and to facilitate procreation, progeny and the continuation of the family lineage, (Char, 2014). Women are expected to remain home and take care of the family, while the husband goes out and finds work. Although their contribution to economic survival was vital, women’s social status remained secondary and supplemental to that of men. Women are often less educated and less wealthy because of the need to stay home and remain a caretaker (Buckley, 2015).
In Indian culture, women where considered to be subservient to their male counterparts. Either by religious dictation or cultural custom, the females in society were expected to be serve as child barriers in order to propagate the family lineage of her male companion. Women are supposed to be supervised by a male whether it be the husband, older son, or father, when going into the village. Women are also not allowed to learn how to drive because of the supervision rule (Buckley, 2015). In their culture this is supposed to be a luxury for women to not have to worry about the stress of driving. However, I feel this puts limitations on women being able to go where and when they want.
The sex ratio among the Indian children is primary masculine. There are reports that 100 million baby girls were missing from India. Also, there are about 41 million “missing women” died from maltreatment and resulted in a male-biased population. This bias is also seen as the children are growing up. The male child will receive attention and food where the female child will appear neglected. These girls present signs of malnourishment which is called stunting (Pillai & Ortiz-Rodriguez, 2015).
