Five years of rigorous research on the roots of gender violence in India, brought Dr. Deepa Narayan to this startling conclusion: Indian women are systematically trained to delete themselves—to delete their own power, to make themselves invisible. The expectations of both men and women keep this power inequality in place even in the educated middle and upper classes.
Deepa Narayan identifies seven key habits that train women not to exist and that dominate women's everyday lives, despite their education, success, financial status and family background. These behaviours may seem harmless but each one keeps women’s powerlessness in place.
