Mother's Name/ Wife's Name should be compulsory on Aadhaar/Voter Cards

It's required both the parents for the birth of a child. Neither a marriage can be happened without two people. But always the MAN is made the primary face to define any relation. In every Government issued identity card, Father's name is mentioned for both the single or married men and for single women. For the married women, this segment is altered by the Husband's name. There is no column existed for Mother's name or Wife's name. Even in every examination form, father's name is marked as mandatory field but mother's name can be left blank. When the whole World is fighting for gender equality, one's identification is solely based on the Father. It only implies that even the women have no importance on legal terms too. A mother's role in a child's life is so overlooked that her name is not even required anywhere. Likewise wife cannot be a husband's identifier. Even the parents' identity is no longer valid for a married women. Women are still forced to change their maiden surnames after marriage.With these protocols, children of single mothers would definitely face identity issues at various stages. Government should give up these formats and establish the change so that women can no longer be treated as secondary gender.
