Only 60 years ago it was common in the western world that women had to stay at home to take care of the family and household chores. I don't think it was only feminism that changed that, but also technology. For example washing machines probably saved a lot of time (even a bachelor can wash their own clothes these days). Not sure how widespread access to such technology is in India?
GDP per capita is about $3500, adjusting for PPP. 31% of the population has improved sanitation.
So, washing machines are not very widespread.
