There is a third world country Women are regarded as the obligatory servants to men.
Women are routinely expected to dance attendance on men— bow to them, hold open doors, push in chairs, etc, and make other routine gestures of obeisance, to remain silent when a man speaks, to never contradict a man, to agree with all he says and do exactly as he wishes.
Women are expected to marry young, and cast aside any ambitions for their own life. If they refuse, they are culturally scorned as selfish children. Women are expected to bring as much wealth as possible into the marriage, as a dowry to justify their worth as a spouse. If she does not bring enough wealth into the marriage, she will hear of it continually from the parents of the husband, who will treat her with thinly veiled contempt. Men on the other hand are encouraged to put off marriage as long as possible, so that they can climb as high as possible in social status with other men before settling down.
Once women do marry, they are expected to provide for their households, tend to the household’s finances and upkeep, and to be legally and morally responsible for the welfare of their children— they are expected to work outside of the home, to even take a second job if the money is needed. Yet if a man wants the same job, even if he is less qualified or experienced, she is expected to step aside so that the man can take the “status” enhancing position.
In a divorce, the woman loses everything, even her children, because the man is the patriarch of the family and holds absolute authority. A man who finds out a woman is carrying his child can demand she have an abortion, regardless of her wishes. She can be forced to give up her child for adoption to strangers if the man so says. Despite being expected to raise and provide for the children, she is regarded in this patriarchal society as nothing more than an incubator for the man’s seed. In a crisis situation, men and their heirs are rescued first… and then the women if there’s time. Women are expendable.
The cultural portrayal of women is terrible. They are routinely portrayed in their movies, books, plays and popular culture as emotional, childish, irresponsible, under-intelligent, and in constant need of supervision by men. As said earlier, women who do not marry are socially shunned as selfish and childish. They receive terrible social treatment, brutal punishments for crimes for which a man receives a slap on the wrist, receive inferior education, inferior medical care, inferior legal status and have no parental, procreative, or marital rights, and are considered unnatural and unwomanly if they do not happily yield to this state of affairs. It is a dismal state of misogyny that has been decried by thousands— to stunning indifference from the civilized world.
