Well that has been the case so far. But times are changing. There are many successful women in different fields who have risen to that position through their won merit. They are respected for their work and capabilities. Who remembers or even knows their husbands? Example Kiran Bedi, Indra Nooyi ( chief of Pepsico) and Mrs. Chanda D Kochhar ( MD and CEO of ICICI Bank Limited.)

I dont know Kiran Bedi's husbands or fathers or sibling's name. In turn they are known to be Kiran Bedi's somebody. How about Kiran Mazumdar Shaw? Who the blazes is Shaw? Who is her father? Any idea who Sania Mirza's sibling or parents, or Saina Nehwal's? How about Indira Nooyi or Kalpana Chawla, or Chanda Kochar, .... I can give you quite a list kaminiji....
India has opened up quite a lot in the last two decades alone, and time has come wherein women are known and respected for what they are and what they can do rather than by the yardstick in the question. When women break out of the home and start doing something themselves, more and more will get known and respected as time goes by. Even in the west, they took over 5 decades after being granted equal rights even in voting to reach a level wherein they were respected as individuals in their own right. We just have to wait a bit.
By the bye, who was Sarojini Naidu's father, brother or sister? The ball started rolling long ago for ...more

It is women only, who dont demand or command respect. They are shy and wish
to stay behind her husband may be due to their inferiority complex. Some women
who dare to come and lead from the front are definitely respected in our society .
See the list, umpteen women are there as CEO, Chairperson, PM, CM, etc.etc.
They all are respected in India and also in developed countries. I dont know
much about under-developed countries and those countries that observe
religion as state policy.

Well I don't agree that because of your gender you need to be respected. It is irrespective of gender. One should be treated respectfully. Individuality should be respected. In India it is unfortunate that women empowerment is not recognized as appreciably as it is with men. But now situations are changing. We should recognize, appreciate and encourage women's involvement in every field so that these disparities vanish away.
