Abstract

Patriarchy is an evil social construct. A woman is marginalized based on her gender as a woman who is treated inferior compared to men. Patriarchal ideologies are imposed upon women. They are discriminated, suppressed, or subjugated based on a socio-economic and political basis. Gender Inequality is evident in almost all fields, where women enjoy unequal rights as compared to women. Kishwar Naheed, in her famous poem “I am not that Woman,” raises her voice against injustice towards women.
