The Birth of Patriarchy

By The Sentient Being

"Unity is meaningless without the accompaniment of women. Education is fruitless without educated women, and agitation is incomplete without the strength of women."- Dr. Ambedkar

What is patriarchy??

How did it became a norm??

If women have the gift to give birth,

How did patriarchy born??

Was the creator of universe biased??

Or was it the nature's fault???

How did man became the strongest??

and women being the lowest form???

Is there any proof in the history,

which claims the inequalities???

of being a man or a woman

does have differences???

Besides the sexes,

what is the difference??

who is the strongest or the weakest,

who was there to judge???

During the pre-historic era, patriarchy or matriarchy

there had been no systems,

then definitely the institution of marriage,

should be responsible, or be the cause.

But, still before the institution of marriage,

originated the religions,

which defined the rules, and differences,

amongst the man and woman.

Take it any religion from the world,

Man is the superior being of all,

Women being the lowest,

need to serve, reproduce, and bring happiness to men.

Vedic Dharma is claimed, to be the oldest religion of the world,

before creation of any religion or religious scripture around the world.

Women being the lowest to all the Varnas, in the varna system

Is the ultimate cause.

The birth of religion is the ultimate tragedy,

In the era of humankind,

Created the differences among man and woman,

and gave birth to patriarchy.

Women do conquer, struggle with patriarchy,

but will ever women conquer their religion,

and succeed to gain utmost equality???
