…of being labeled JKGs 😉
A JKG is a man who does not think gender bias benefits him or the society. (A JKG is not necessarily a married man.)
In India it’s difficult for a man to speak against biases that oppress women. The danger increases if he speaks in support of his wife (Joru). Such acts of common sense require courage, and are rewarded with taunts and labels like JKG (Joru Ka Gulam).
Literal meaning: ‘Slave of Wife/Woman’
