One can see a changing trend in the way womens role is defined and shown in ads and serials...While, earlier it was the trend to portray women as every tearful, obedient ladies of the house ready to put up with just about everything her husband did , now opposite is the case. They are all fuming and fretting and plotting at the drop of a hat and ordering their husbands or b/fs to do this or that ( Prestige ad with abhishek and aishwariya and so many others) ...Honestly, cant we have a balance? Do we need to do things in extreme?

Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    These kinds of ads are actually shown to show that women are superior to men....but on a practical level we see the role of women has yet to undergo a sea change. Women of every class have no doubt become more independent..but since the difference and change has to be shown probably that is why the balance we are expecting is missing. It will take time to strike a balance and show the same in ads and any other field. Hope we see more balance in the future.

    This is natural. we move from one extreme to another till we somehow balance. This is not only about women status. This happens in all fields of life. significantly, Buddhism preaches middle path.

    Financial independence does not mean being assertive....There is no purpose served by being dominating and bossy and this is true of both sexes.Unless there is give and take no relationship is going to work, so personally I feel that this kind of a depiction will have a negative impact on the society at least to some extent !

    Why say this about women only, look at the way the children are being portrayed in serials. They show everything in its extreme form. Normal is not the word in their dictionary.

    The ads are indeed showing the reflections of the changes in our society. But along with such type of ads that showcase women a bit negatively as being too dominant, yet there are other ads too which portray the woman more confident in her roles as a career woman as well as the home maker. One such ad that I really liked is where the woman is shown as her husband's boss who comes home to prepare a lovely dinner for him and is seen beseeching him to come home early. That is one ad bound to make positive changes, it passes a message that having a woman boss or even having your wife ahead of you in career is quite okay, which even now, is a matter of chagrin to many men.

    Sadly, this was the on-going trend with men, who were the primary bread winners so far..but with the growing no.of earning women this role is getting transformed. It is a bitter truth that with money comes power- even in a family! But I agree there should be a balance, both sexes be shown working hand in hand both within a family and at their workplaces, responsibilities should be divided. However, there are home makers who are bossy and working women who are meek and docile, here financial independence doesn't play any role.

    I too like that ad...It shows the changing trend without exaggerating it. But there are not many of that kind....You find women being patronising or plain dominating which is highly irritating , since that does not happen in real life ( at least not as a rule )
