Role of Women in India and the US
By Adrian Hernandez and Elijah Keller
Role of Women in India
Today there have been fairly large steps taken for women's rights in India, many young women can have an education, and have a job outside the house. However, women are still expected to both see to their husband's needs and keep the house in order. These reforms are typically seen in large cities where these laws are much easier to enforce. Many small towns and villages still practice the traditional roles of women, including the ceremonial killing of the wives on the husband's funeral pyre.
Role of Women in America
Much like India, the role of women in America was traditionally to take care of the house, take care of their husbands, and bear the family children. Unlike India however, women in America have much more rights that they can now exercise. Originally, women had to dress a certain way in order for them to be more pleasing to men's eyes, they didn't have the right to vote, nor the right to file for a divorce.
Many women today have basically the same rights as men, they can own land, dress how they like, file for a divorce, vote, and pretty much do what type of work they like best. They have the freedom to choose how to go about their life, and the right to the same freedoms that men have in a daily basis. Comapared to India, women in the U.S. are allowed very similar rights to men.
