Their roles change on various stages. It’s not just Africa or Asia. America and Europe come in, too. Gender inequalities have been embedded in cultures as old as the early Man. Women are a spectacle to behold, receptacles of emotion, laden with age-old history of injustices. The weaker sex? Or the one who has endured the most pains? Who is stronger? Women go a long way.

So, the gaps remain, the Yul Bryno movie The King and I is definitely not about the state of women affairs in some exotic, distant place and time.

Anger at age-old conventions and cultures could blind one to see who the real enemy is.Occasionally, they get caught in the wrong fight.
