The documentary inspects the women 's battle to secure their status in their family through dealing with a patriarchal mentality, the women also attempt to exert their power, and through it all, we become familiar to Dadi, the manager of the family. Having a daughter brings sadness through some families as they know the struggle their daughters ought to face. Compared to males, their life is much harder as the experience of being a female is more a burden than anything else. There is no day off being a woman in a household, either being a sister, daughter, daughter in law or mother in law there is always a task assigned to you.

They do not like to be emotionally passive.” (ibid. 507) Fitzgerald consciously gives them secondary roles in the story, which keeps with the traditional view that women do not have a voice. Though these women have tremendous effects on men, which are often detrimental, they are portrayed as “mere complements” to the men(Mardsen).
