when i was in india, my parents were pressuring me to get married as soon as i finished college. i put my foot down, went for studies to the u.s. i met my husband here and i'm glad i didn't succumb to my parents pressure.

i think that these articles are from people who are very brave and have had the chance to make something of them selves. you can get no where without an education. i am at college and hope to succed as these people have.

gender bias is so deep rooted in indian families that they don't even realise they are doing it. the most unfortunate part is women as mothers inculcate and encourage this behaviour. only educated and self-independent mothers can erase this evil from society.

Country: India
one very strong reason for the preference for boys at least in our country, and especially among certain communities in north india, is that most parents think their sons will look after them in their old age, while they cannot expect the same from their daughters. we women can change this around by actively flying to our parents' rescue evertime they are in need. it is surprisingly easy to do this, if we only show the same interest towards our in-laws. then most of the time, our husbands, and in-laws, too, will support us, pitching in with child-care etc, when we need to go. if parents can be brought to realise that their girls, too, will be there for them always, then i hope that this gender bias will fade a bit. what do you people think?

in class we are learning about all kinds og biases and i am enjoying it alot and we have to give in an rtical on any kind of biases and i found good ones here.

Name: gender bias
Country: India
i agree with what nikita and jaya have written.we are the future generation,we can change the mentality of our society.initially, love marriages and inter caste marriages were not allowed,now the society accepts it easily.working mothers were discouraged,the scenario is different,at present.similarly gender bias could be removed.earlier everobody had boys and girls as their children as the no.of children was not limited(9-10 or more).now as the so-called society accepts only 2 children,the option to people is female nfanticide,ridiculous! on one hand there are childless couples and on the other ,when god gives them mercy,they want a boy,does'nt matter if they fight for property,do not go to work or even put their old parents on road. only we can stop this gender bias by more awareness! na lini

so nalini, you are trying to say that all sons put their parents on road??? whining is in your nature, because you were born like that. but my question is to the men out there, how long will you put up with all this?? we men are blamed for every problem in the world. all the wars happened because of "male ego" where as, the indo-pak war of 1971 and various wars fought by the british empire back in the 1600s,1700s, and the 1800s were brought out by none other than women!!!!!!!!

Name: nature

gender bias???? get real, it exists, whether we like it or not. i have different expectations from both my children, i react to both differently, i even play differently with them.i can cuddle my daughter much more than my son. i cannot sit down to a session of creating colour combinations with clothes with my son. i cannot expect my son not to treat the window grille as some kind of jungle gym. i am educated, i have been given all the opportunities one could want, i have chosen to stay at home for the children. and still i treat my two children differently. gender bias is not only about giving equal opportunities!!!

what is put across is true because i have a statistic of the gen der bais

Country: India
i agree that it is true that the strange thing is that women propogate the notion and divide certain chores into 'feminine and masculine chores'. i think it is high time that work be looked upon as just not be categorised into male and female work. there was a purpose in dividing it earlier. it made practical sense when only the man worked and the woman looked after the house. it was a bias but it also made life systematic, orderly. but the same practices cannot work today when the woman is also working. it just makes sense that work be divided based on interest and ability. there is honour, dignity and great learning in every little chore in the world...whether it is cleaning toilets or running a country. the fact of life is someone has got to do the job...not men alone or women alone but every individual. it is in the nature of life. we all need to eat, sleep, be clothed, sheltered...there is 'work' in every part of life...and we all need to do it as humans...not as men or women. let us create a world where the men can take a break from work if they need to and women can enter any line of work they please. let's not divide ourselves more and more. we are the ultimate losers. i persoanlly feel great seeing men play with their kids in the parks and women work as auto drivers and conductors...

Name: nikita
Country: India
i am indian - my parents are very conservative - but fortunately as far as education goes, they were very liberal and gave us sisters equal opportunities as our brothers. ofcourse girls going out & working was looked down upon in our family (ours is a business family) however, after getting married, i started working and am really glad that i did so - today i am financially independent - not only that, i can take my own decisions and have an independent life style within the parameters of my married life and the kind of egoist that i am, i really am glad that my parents gave me a sound education to stand on my feet - i thank them for this. i have a daughter now and do not have the intention to have any more - i am very happy with my daughter - on my part, marriage will never be forced on her, on the contrary, am planning to send her to the states when she finishes school for higher studies so that she can have a great career - i strongly feel that we handicap our daughters with our primitive views otherwise there is nothing in this world that a man can do and a woman cannot and if we give our daughters equal oppotunities, then they can be as good as the boys and even better. in fact, girls should be made all the more financially independent in life so that in times of crisis, they do not have to succumb to humiliating professions to earn their living.
