These are not my views but the statements I have taken from this website which belongs to an Iskon follower
1.…Concerning the woman’s duty, if she gets married, that does not necessarily mean that she must give up any of her service in the temple or on sankirtana, but she must also see to it that her household duties are not neglected.
2….Man’s business is to earn money, go to the market, the necessities. Woman’s business is take care of household affairs, children, and they have got engagement. And in the presence of father or elder brother or husband, a woman has to earn livelihood—that’s a great insult.
3….A woman’s real business is to look after household affairs…
4.”To render service to the husband, to be always favorably disposed toward the husband, to be equally well disposed toward the husband’s relatives and friends, and to follow the vows of the husband—these are the four principles to be followed by women described as chaste.
5.”A chaste woman must dress nicely and decorate herself with golden ornaments for the pleasure of her husband. Always wearing clean and attractive garments, she should sweep and clean the household with water and other liquids so that the entire house is always pure and clean. She should collect the household paraphernalia and keep the house always aromatic with incense and flowers and must be ready to execute the desires of her husband. Being modest and truthful, controlling her senses, and speaking in sweet words, a chaste woman should engage in the service of her husband with love, according to time and circumstances.”
6.”A chaste woman should not be greedy, but satisfied in all circumstances. She must be very expert in handling household affairs and should be fully conversant with religious principles. She should speak pleasingly and truthfully and should be very careful and always clean and pure. Thus a chaste woman should engage with affection in the service of a husband who is not fallen.”
7.A husband is the supreme demigod for a woman. The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Vasudeva, the husband of the goddess of fortune, is situated in everyone’s heart and is worshiped through the various names and forms of the demigods by fruitive workers. Similarly, a husband represents the Lord as the object of worship for a woman.
No wonder women are treated so badly in our country, we are maid-cum-baby-making-machine. Nowhere is it written that we are human beings. If we are even seen as women, we are seen through blinkers that come from a time when women were supposed to be smiling, self sacrificing mute workhorses tethered to home and kitchen.
I was once chastised by an acquaintance … he was a relative of a friend of mine. He walked into a restaurant we were dining in, and actually had the nerve to tell me “Sharm nahin aati, aurat aur Ma hokar non-veg khate ho. Kya sanskaar doge apne bacchon ko?”
Translation : “Arent you ashamed that you eat non-veg food being a woman and mother. What morals and values will you impart your sons?”
I normally use humor to get out of such situations, but that was one time I reacted badly. I told him that what I did or did not do was none of his fucking business, and what moral training I imparted to my sons was not his problem.
But there it is … the attitude that women have to be suppressed, choices have to be made for them. And if they do not comply to those choices, then they should be raped, molested and even beaten so as to break them, all for better control.
Mentality of this society and its police has not changed. It is not progressive, it dates back to the vedas.
Edited to add : Apparently this teaching is from Srimad Bhagvadam and associated texts which are later interpretations. Thanks @Bhavana Upadhyay for the information. Men were the literate people, empowered and able to read and write. So they interpreted texts in ways that suited them. The poor women never got a chance to bat for their side, and hence got suppressed. Those interested in knowing what Bhavana says, check the comment section
