Aitraaz

"Hum Aaj Kal Hamesha mard ko hi galat manate hain. Agar Mard Aurat ko thapad marata hain to hum kahte hain ki bada jalim mard hain aur agar Aurat Mard ko thappad marti hain, to kahate hain jaroor mard ne kuch kiya hoga. Hamesha Mard hi galat hota hain yeh manane se mujhe Aitraaz Hain bahoot aitraaz."

Translated into English
"These days we always blame the man!!! If a Man slaps a Women we say how voilent he is!!! But if a Women slaps a Man we again blame the Man (with a benefit of doubt to the lady)stating the man must have done something wrong and he is getting back. I object to this 'assumption' that men are always wrong . I in fact I object to this vociferously."

Quoted by the character, played by Kareena Kapoor in 'Aitraaz'

Its this perspective of the society in which women come clean in image, plus false sense of ego on the part of men, which results in men who live under oppression till the end- this is the silent majority of battered husbands, but they will never come out in the fore since its considered as lack of valour to even think that a man is oppressed.

If woman do domestic violence, she is brave and was fighting against torture, if men even defends himself, by resisting her, then it is portrayed as "he was trying to to torture her".
