Since time immemomorial Indian women has been quite brazenly exploited, more by women I guess then by men. The thing that amuses (in darkest sense) most is how essential it is for any Indian woman to be the “daughter in law” to get sympathy/often legal help.
When a father exploits his daughter, her cries go unheard mostly.
When a brother throws out his sisters from his (?) ancestral house their cries go unheard.
When a son throws his mother out on the street her tears are invisible.
When a man abuses his wife….
The intriguing point is if we dig honestly we will see that ALMOST ALWAYS there is a woman involved in the first three cases, a DAUGHTER IN LAW.
