  1. Not really. I know many, many students, wives, professors, doctors who do not live their lives seeking validation from men. Hard-wired? I don’t think so. But then these women I mentioned have a stronghold professionally which is why they do not need approval or validation from anyone, let alone from men.

  2. I personally feel Indian women are hardwired to seek validation.I guess its also because women are taught to put others before themselves.Things are a bit brighter these days in the urban scenario, but in rural areas women are denied even the right to choose. Being independent is probably the only way out of this
