MANU SMRITI: On treatment of women

यत्र नार्यस्तु पूज्यन्ते रमन्ते तत्र देवताः ।
यत्रैतास्तु न पूज्यन्ते सर्वास्तत्राफला क्रियाः ॥
शोचन्ति जामयो यत्र विनश्यत्याशु तत्कुलं ।
न शोचन्ति तु यत्रैता वर्धते तद्धि सर्वदा॥
तस्मादेताः सदा पूज्या भूषणाच्छादनाशनैः ।
भूतिकामैर्नरैर्नित्यं सत्कार्येषूत्सवेषु च ॥
संतुष्टो भार्यया भर्ता भार्या भर्त्रा तथैव च ।
यस्मिन्नेव कुले नित्यं कल्याणं तत्र वै ध्रुवं ॥

Yatra naaryastu poojyante ramante tatra devataah
Yatraitaastu na poojyante sarvaastatraaphalaa kriyaah

Shochanti jaamayo yatra vinashyatyaashu tatkulam
Na shochanti tu yatraitaa vardhate taddhi sarvadaa

Tasmaadetaah sadaa poojyaah bhooshana achchaadana ashanaih
Bhootikaamair narair nityam satkaaryeshu utsaveshu cha

Santushto bhaaryayaa bhartaa bhaaryaa bhartraa tathaiva cha
Yasminneva kule nityam kalyaanam tatra vai dhruvam

Where women are propitiated and respected there the devatas (celestials) abide happily. Where they are not honoured no sacrifices or rituals (kiriyaah) will bear fruit.

Those clans will perish whose women grieve and where they do not grieve such clans will prosper always.

Therefore one who wishes to prosper and accumulate wealth should please women of the household by means of ornaments, fine clothes and good food on auspicious occasions and during festivals.

Those clans will definitely prosper and be full of joy where the husbands are content with their wives and the wives are content with their husbands.
