Patriarchy

February 27, 2017 in uncategorised

I personally did not know patriarchy as a term to describe how male dominance played a role in females lives. I could totally relate to Bell about religion or male family member have superior roles or abilities towards the female as we grew up with total respect to all male figures within our household.

Growing up we are immediately shaped into roles that are meant to define who we are and what part we play in the society for example girls doing household chores and boys playing with cars and also being served by girls.

Education about the girl child and the women’s rights in a way gave birth to breaking boundaries of subordination but not to a greater extent as it also┬ábecomes increasingly worrying if a woman has a patriarchal thinking.
