THE INFLUENCE OF PATRIARCHY ON GENDER ROLES
Patriarchy represents the domination of the females by the males. It literally means, the rule of the father. The man in a patriarchal set up is considered central and the woman peripheral. The identity of a woman revolved around her father, brother and husband. The researcher aims to study the origin of patriarchy and its prevalence in our society. Are women born submissive, weak, tolerant and passive or are they conditioned to be so? Does society encourage these gender specific roles? Feminism was a movement which began in the 1960’s and it questioned stringent patriarchal norms which discriminated against women. It aimed for an egalitarian society where men and women could be considered equal.
Key Words: Patriarchy, Gender roles, Masculine, Feminine and Feminism
