ABSTRACT
Masculinity in a patriarchal society is a symbol of power and control. It is an expression of gender roles. The patriarchal society, in correspondence to the men's anxiety for deficient expression of masculinity and desire for privileges, allows men to demonstrate masculinity by being violent to their women. Since time immemorial woman has been the victim of male domination oppression .She is treated as a beast of burden or an object of pleasure. The Bible at various places shown the superiority of man over woman is stressed.
