    Gender inequality is a serious concern. I like the way you have covered it here. We need to start the conversation on this.

    Well now this is an interesting read cause your title itself talks about breaking Gender Inequality and on the other hand it says ‘raise feminist kids’. Honestly I am in favor of gender equal parenting and living

      Feminism, in my opinion, is about bith sexes being equal and not one above the other. Sadly, in most cases, we have to bring the women up to the level of man to make things equal. I am glad that parents today are in favor of gender-equal parenting. Thanks for reading

      Feminism, in my opinion, is about both sexes being equal and not one above the other. Sadly, in most cases, we have to bring the women up to the level of man to make things equal. I am glad that parents today are in favor of gender-equal parenting. Thanks for reading

    Absolutely important to break the mindsets to break the stereotypes. These notions are set in the nature like the mom will be doing the chore and job and taking care of baby, without appreciation. But when father does anything, he is praised and termed “helpful”. It irritates me to the core.

      Because it irritates you and me, we will teach our kids equality. That is what is needed to have a better world. Thanks for reading 🙂

    Your post was as hard hitting and as conclusive as it can be; it reiterated the true spirit of feminism which is often misunderstood as otherwise; we seek equality and not supremacy of any one gender and it will be doing right by our future if we succeed in teaching children the rightful way. Hopeful!

    It’s a need of the hour topic. Though with changing times Indian society has evolved, still we have to go a long way.

    Your blog post was as hard hitting and as unnerving in explaining the right meaning of feminism which is often misunderstood otherwise; we seek equality of both the gender than the supremacy of one; and will do right by future if we succeed in teaching the children the rightful meaning.

    Arushi, I completely agree to the pointers shared in the post. Yes we all should look upto a person first and then the gender and I too feel the change begins at home and parenting style can do much difference to it. Have written on this on our blog too.

    This is the most balanced post I have read on gender equality. Most times, it’s always difficult to have no gender biases when you have deep-rooted patriarchy. But thankfully times are changing.

    You have some great pointers here, Arushi. The issue with gender inequality is that it is ingrained in the Indian psyche. Particularly in case of customs and traditions that I was at the received end of.

      Yes that is what we need to work on so that it is not ingrained in the next generation. Glad you like the post, thanks for reading 🙂

    Its actually really sad that even after being so much developed, and moving so ahead, we still practice such difference. It has to begin from home.

    I don’t call myself a feminist but I definitely call for an environment where where my Husband and me are trying to raise our son in a gender unbiased environment, where the male has equal sharing of work load in the household similar to how the female has equal say in financial matters. This is a very nicely written post. Thanks for sharing this. #MyFriendAlexa #CloudandSunshineReads

      In my opinion, with parents like you, we definitely will be able to leave a gender unbiased environment for our children. Thank you for reading. I am glad you like the post.

    It is so important to start young. From teaching both boys and girls to play football to letting them both do the basics around the house. Small steps from when they are young will go a long way! AND can we just do away with the blue/pink colour assigning please?

      Haha yes. Blue and pink, is the most annoying and it just shows we start so early teaching them the difference. Thanks for reading.

    That was a thought provoking post. Being a parent I understand the importance of raising kids in a gender neutral environment. It requires my husband and he to work together as a team so we are able to set a great example for our girls.

    Truly said that It is something that exists among all levels of the society and this does not get any discrimination. It happens at all classes. So it becomes important for us to raise feminist kids

    Changes start at home. When we as parent present our rights and responsibilities equally be it at work or play, especially household chores. The right environment would make a solid base for this thought “Equality” to grow. Lovely detailed post, Aarushi.
