Patterns of Social Inequality and Exclusion

Question

How do women reformers say that male reformers have not advocated women issues in an appropriate manner?

Answer

Tarabai Shinde of Maharashtra and Begum Rokeya Sakhawat Hussain are some women reformers who refer this fact in their writings "Stree Purush Tulana" and "Sultana's Dream". They say a young brahmin widow is sentenced to death by courts if she kills her new born baby but no efforts are made to identify or punish the man who has fathered the baby.
