The inheritance of property rights by daughters has also allowed women to enjoy more status within households.Some of the practices of this traditional kinship system included polyandry (many husbands for women) and the joint family system.In addition to direct forms of violence against women, women in public spheres are targeted both through direct and online abuse.Some examples include the sexist and denigatory statements of the film director Major Ravi against a renowned TV journalist based on her reporting of the controversial presentation of the Goddess Durga; online abuse targeted at the TV presenter Ranjani Haridas who is seen as a “liberated” and “modern” Malayalee woman; and ongoing opposition for women’s entry into the Sabarimala Temple.The kinship system of “Marumakkathayam” is unique to Kerala.This simply means the practice of matriliny, whereby inheritance of family property is traced through daughters, rather than sons.This is because women’s “gender capital” is identified with traits of femininity, such as domestication, passivity and subordination to male superiority (including sexuality).Meanwhile, notions of femininity and feminine traits are being simultaneously devalued or disadvantaged in the public sphere.

Despite women’s higher education, the female capital is seen to be confined to the private home life.There has been much anger from the film industry and feminist groups regarding the safety of young girls in Kerala society. The rising number of attacks against women and girls in India’s most literate state is indeed shocking.According to the data on the Kerala Police website, the number of rape cases has risen from 500 in 2007 to 1,644 in 2016.The higher echelons of political and economic power in Kerala are still dominated by men.In many ways, the Kerala model has not come to include or value its feminine capital by expanding the role of women as equals in society.Forty seven-year-old Sagar finally got a body that aligned with his gender identity after going through a sex reassignment surgery at a Mumbai hospital earlier this year.
