Model-turned actor Nadia Hussain has said that the society’s expectation from a woman to serve and cater her husband is wrong because her husband is her partner and not her child. The Jalan star added that she is not raising her children the way society functions.
In a recent interview with ‘Hamare Mehman‘, while talking about societal gender roles especially in a marriage, she mentioned that “It’s not my responsibility to look after my husband and his things. He’s not my child whom I have to look after all the time, he’s my life partner. To demand and to expect that a woman whom you’ll marry will serve you with everything and will be responsible for all your work is totally wrong.”
“I will never raise my children like that,” adding, “Why women are expected to do chores after coming from work.”
The Noor Bano actor concluded her stance by stating, “A woman should have a right to divorce. My father-in-law told my mother about the clause -18 in Nikkah papers, in which a girl has a right to divorce. It is generally crossed in papers, but my father-in-law made sure to uncross that section.”
On the work front, Nadia recently gained critical acclaim for her performance in Jalan opposite Emmad Irrfani.
