This implies that, women have now acquired the potential of conducting the family in its social and financial streams. However, can women protect the family from any kind of physical aggression from any quarter? Here I think she lags far behind the capacity of men in this sphere and, is likely to continue to do so. It is her weak nature and physical weakness that prevents her from entering into the man’s shoes wholly. Regarding the physique, women are far behind the men and are not likely to make up this deficiency, as this is God’s gift to women.
Alright, let us for a moment think that women can surely take up reins of the family, and head it just like the men have been doing hitherto. Now, the biggest hurdle that she will have to confront in achieving her targets will be – man himself. Men who have been bosses in their homes for near centuries, will they ever allow this newly acquired status to women? Most certainly not. They will use all their physical strength to overcome this new menace.
The battle with man, he will very naturally fight tooth and nail to retain his unearned identity in the family. With this chief obstacle in front of women, to supremacy in the family, I do wonder if ever the dream of woman heading the family can ever be realized.
Thus, though women have become competent enough to head the family, the male counterpart will resist her rise to this position and she will have to succumb to his dictates. So, though she can, she will not be able to achieve this goal in the near future.
