Abstract

There is a fast growing notion that stereotypes feminism as misogyny and advocates that men are unfairly portrayed as the superior gender. Through this paper, case studies, evidence, and facts have been provided discussing the prevalent gender stereotypes and norms along with the gender specific crime rates. The paper has taken India as its object of study and found statistics all based on the current timeline of the 21st century to highlight these facts. It aims to prove that acceptance of equality in the face of adversity and obvious discrimination puts centuries of struggle by women on the back foot, and that the growing norm is in fact false under the discussed parameters.
