    When Sita finds herself separated from her husband in the woods, she encounters a demigod, Ravana, the demon with ten heads. Ravana tries to pursue Sita, who tells the ten headed demigod, Ravana that he has no clue who he is talking to, and he didn’t have a chance. Sita made it clear that he shouldn’t dare speak to the wife of Rama in that manor, and that she held her husband, herself and their relationship to high standards stating this about Rama, “His name is renowned throughout the world, his eyes are large, his arms strong. He is virtuous, honest, truthful, and devoted to the welfare of all people” (Ramayana of Valmiki, Book 3. Sarga 45, 903). This line proves how highly Sita thinks of Rama, what high standards she has in a man. Standards that Ravana could never reach, she made that clear on page 904 of our text where she says to Ravana, “As for you, you are a jackal in the presence of a lioness, to come here seeking me, whom you can never have. You could no more touch me than touch the radiance of the Sun (The Ramayana of Valmik, Book 3. Sarga 45, 904). If you are even slighty familiar with Eastern culture you would know that there are very specific gender roles, today women of the West feel that Women of the East are extremely suppressed and lack rights. So you can imagine how out of the ordinary it would’ve been, especially in this time period…

    During the time of The Ramayana India 's society was largely patriarchal and women were expected to be perfect wives that were submissive to their husbands (Trautmann, 88). This idea was especially present among castes that were of a higher class, much like the lives that Rama and Sita were born into. Upon first glance it appear as though Sita is nothing more than a product of her time; a young and naive princess that is all too willing to sacrifice everything for her husband and follow the…

    The relationship between men and women in the texts are similar to what we have read in the ancient Greek and Indian texts The Iliad, The Odyssey and The Ramayana of Valmiki. There is a blatant divide between the status of the sexes, men are again the dominant gender, who rule and do as they please, while the women are once again just a part of man 's world. Like the Ramayana of Valmiki, men were allowed to have multiple wives, concubines and other relations, but such acts would be deemed…
