I wonder if this attitude is truly limited to what you refer to as a backwards culture.
I'm not so sure it isn't also an undercurrent in our own Western culture; it simply isn't admitted for PC reasons.

(I recall reading that Princess Diana felt unwanted by her parents, because they were hoping for a son and hadn't even considered a name for a daughter).

I think there is still an undercurrent in society in general that men/male species is more highly regarded then women. Even though women have risen to higher standards in the world, men in general still show lots of disrespect for women. When I see women dress today showing everything, they are showing that is the only way to get the attention of the opposite sex and that is all they are good for.....not big on self respect, self esteem, or confidence in who you are as a woman.......getting off topic and so sorry I got carried a way on this.........this is a huge sore spot for me in today's society.
