Draupadi: A classic tale of women oppression like many others in our mythological books!


Draupadi was shared by 5 men who called themselves her husband, she was molested because one of her husband was too drunk and actually gambled her.


Kings had many wives, they left the old ones and went for new ones, daughters were given as a gift to join forces (like a business deal). Women dying to marry Shiva and Indra (no one died for the goddesses). Krishna was a womens man (thats the least impactful word i could come up with)

The oppression was never there in our Hindu Mythology, look at our goddesses: Laxmi (wealth), Saraswati (Knowledge), Durga (Power), Kali (Anger). They started with the Mughals.

Read this: The Roots of Female oppression In Indian Culture

"The male specie needs to be domesticated, because it is the male who has the energy and power to cause disruption. The male is domesticated through a mother, then a Guru, then a Wife. There is always a leader who shows the right path to a male.

The female is always guarded – first through a father, then through a Husband and then trough a son. The female is always guarded from a male because it is the male who will cause disturbance."

Not at all, the mythology or any history talks about wars and battles the most. Rani laxmi bai is talked about when it comes to battle. women were rarely warriors doesnt mean they were oppressed. We are inking anything to anything here this way

Look at Cleopatra, did she not influence men for wars and did she not have multiple partners?

Moreso, women had limited work to do back then, they were made to lure Rishi muni and were restricted to household chores due to a logical reason of fear from the devil. However things have changed now, we dont go by history now, we can interpret whatever we want to from any manuscript but that need not be what is meant

There are sooo many tales of oppression. A simple.thing like telling not to wear too short skirts or too tight tops is oppression. Dressing is an expression of one's personality and dictating someone's clothing is depriving them!
