The Role of Women in Hinduism

Page 18: Hinduism group powerpoint

In the Vedic world, women were required to be present for the rituals to work, even though they had no official role to play in them. Manu continues:

“Day and night, women must be kept dependent to the males of their families. If they attach themselves to sensual enjoyments, they must be kept under one’s control. Her father protects her in childhood. Her husband protects her in youth. Her sons protect her in old age. A woman is never fit for independence.”

FOLLOWING TO HUSBAND’S DEATH The death of her husband is a crisis for

every Hindu wife, and marks her entrance into the third stage of life.

Up until the 19th century, this crisis often meant a choice between two undesirable realities: sati or widowhood.
