Men and women are different, although both are human and deserve human’s rights. However, they have gender disparities in many aspects of living: social, economic, culture and political. No boat can have two captains, however there can be a pilot and a co-pilot. Does marriage mean giving up some rights? Should women always follow men or can become equal partners?
Modernization brings new philosophy, ideologies, technology progress and various perceptions. Can tolerance, appreciation and partnership help avoid conflict? How can ensure human rights (and women’s rights) in marital relationship without violence, oppression and loss of dignity? How can we promote gender equality within the spirit of partnership?
