When a woman takes to politics, there are certain
adjustments which she makes with her husband on the basis of mutual
understanding and areas of clash are of course also discussed beforehand.
It is only after this mutual adjustment that both can
proceed as a family unit. On a smaller scale, this can be understood from women
who adopt a professional life. Here too certain adjustments are made with their
husbands through mutual consent and understanding. If this understanding does
not exist, then at times she either has to choose between her profession or her
Similar is the case for a woman who finally reaches the top
most rung of her political career. After all much before a married woman reaches
this stage, it would be known to her and to her husband too that their family
can only survive through adjustments. So if the husband is accommodating she can
discharge both responsibilities and if this unfortunately is not the case, then
she too might have to choose between her husband and her political career.
