Last quote by Chitrita Banerji

You may ask why was not there a more concerted attempt at reform, and here I think maybe misogyny played a part. Women were always expected to be the 'sacrificers.' Even if a woman was not a widow, her role in traditional Bengali homes was that of the nurturer who either cooked or, if the family had hired help, supervised the cooking and serving of meals. They always made sure that the men of the house got the best of the food.feedback
