Why feminism will benefit the society
By Aaditya Surya Vedantam
Feminism means the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of the equality of sexes. Since childhood, I have been raised with the teaching that no work is only for men or only for women. I was taught to do household chores alongside my elder sister whom I used to help clean my bed or even wash the dishes. But in India men think that household chores are only meant to be done by women in the house but that is not the case at all. If men help around in household chores, then women in the house will also feel less stressed and stay happier. Just like Michael Kimmel said in his Ted Talk, men will also be happier and benefit from feminism as it will create a balance which is very much needed in this male dominant society.
