In this regard I wish to digress a little to point out that the western attitude towards women’s rights has been most unfortunate so as to create a tremendous social upheaval in the latter part of the 20th century not only in the West but in Asian and African countries as well.
We must not forget that man and woman are the two halves of humanity. The two sexes are not identical. But they are not antagonistic either. They are complementary. The tendency in the West had been to throw them into antagonism, to make them competitors, the one against the other in the battle of life, rivals for employment, rivals for wages, rivals for fame and power. “Rights of Women” have been made to oppose “Rights of Men”. In the not too distant past there had been fierce discussion, hot war of pens and words, anger and bitterness, contemptuous sneers from the one side, passionate outcries from the other. And yet the sexes are not antagonistic. Neither can reach its highest creative excellence without the co-operation of the other. The two sexes should have been viewed as truly complementary, each supplying what the other lacked, each giving that in which the other was deficient and together made up the perfect whole. Physically, mentally and spiritually man and woman differ from each other and only in the blending of the two, could balance and equilibrium be found. But unfortunately a collision course had been set in motion and today women instead of being understood and respected for what they are, have become competitors in the minds of men. There is therefore an unconscious antipathy prevailing in the minds of certain men. As a result their attitudinal bias seems to imperceptibly affect them in dealing with women and their rights. Not only that, women themselves suffer from such bias. Where Women Police are expected to show sympathy and understanding towards those of their own gender taken into custody, the actuality sometimes seems otherwise. Some women police can be so brutal and unsympathetic towards females taken into custody. They could rush to conclusions with regards to the guilt of women suspects, taunt them with ugly and filthy words and comment adversely, sometimes far in excess of men.
Left to ourselves the eastern cultures Indian, Chinese or Japanese would have evolved a social system based on duties rather than rights. The stressing of rights lead to confrontation while the stressing of duties ensures co-operation. But the world being what it is today we have got to recognize social realities and try to remove causes which engender social upheaval and discontent while ensuring substantive equality for the weaker sections of society. Therefore, the need to protect women’s rights stems from our attitudinal bias more than due to legislative insufficiency.
