Assam like in other parts of India followed the law given by Manu. Manu established a patriarchal system and women were given a position of subordination and subjugation. Women were taught to be feminist and feminine woman do not want higher education, career and independence, Those who did were frowned upon by not only males but by their own sex as well. All they had to do was to devote their lives from early girlhood to find a husband and bearing children for him. There was no way she could even dream about herself except as her children's mother or her husband's wife.The women did not even have the freedom to choose their husbands. After their marriage they were advised on how to keep their husbands happy at home and it was generally considered their fault if the men turned elsewhere for their pleasure.
