Goddess Parvathi is the most ill treated woman in our ithihas. She even got burned by Shiva's wrath, even though He has declared Her as His part.comment
2) Probably we have to remember the role of the man who wrote Ramayan and Mahabharath. The man has not been able to come out of his animal instinct fully despite centuries of education.
3) Compared to the above, the present day scenario in India is really horrible. When I check the media for the news, the front pages are full of horrible stories about women. No news is good news. It may be the beheading of a girl student in Ranchi educational institution or something else. I find it very hard to even mention them here.

Generally considered a benign goddess, Parvati also has wrathful aspects like Durga, Kali, Shitala Devi, Tara, Chandi, and the Mahavidyas as well as benevolent forms like Kathyayini, Mahagauri, Kamalatmika, Bhuvaneshwari, and Lalita.
Parvati is depicted as interested in Shiva's tales and appearance from her very birth and finally re ...more
