2. Read the following passage carefully and complete the statements that follow :
Experts agree that the new Indian woman is displaying a very new attitude. But she is not alone in this.According to clinical psychologist Monica Kumar, society on the whole is getting impatient and angry. "Women tend to get singled out for an aggressive attitude simply because they are in a minority", she explains." It's also a settling down phase for the new society. We've always been a patriarchal society. But now that women are getting into powerful positions on all fronts, they are trying to make their presence felt. For a section that has been dominated for centuries, it's not going to be easy to make their point, so they make it loud and clear."Clinical psychologist, Dr. S K Sharma of Ethos Clinic agrees that women today are getting more aggressive and in his words, rightly so. "This is an evolution, a healthy one, leading to a balance of power in society", he says . Since women today are fighting for a better life, they have to become aggressive. This is nature's law of survival."But while the experts don't seem to feel that assertive women are a problem , women who stand up and make themselves heard do confront quite a few problems.Delhiite Arundhati Seigell, who works with a leading corporate house , says she has noticed how society reacts to the woman who wants to make a point. "People want women to be responsive, enthusiastic and spirited, but get cynical when she tries to take an independent stance," she says. We like to say we are a liberal society, buturban India still expects women not to be as assertive or aggressive as men.
