Inequality on the ground of gender or Gender discrimination is the most basic issue from the very beginning. Even though society thinks that women suffer from the inequality prevailing in society. All traditional gender stereotypes are making men suffer more than women. Societal pressure and expectations affect a man's health. All the aspiring feminists are talking about equal rights, but they never pay much care about equal responsibilities. An incident brought light to this problem. A man filed a petition in the Supreme Court because he was directed to pay monthly allowance to his wife after divorce. This case made people realise that sexual abuse and harassment are a man’s issue too. But societal expectations about what it means to “be a man” cause a survivor to suppress his trauma. Irrespective of the fact that there are no law or rules to support men, there are many laws which are made to blindly trust women. All these problems faced by men are so neglected that there are not enough resources to study even on the internet.
