Women have generally been looked down upon and the male-oriented society in India has still not been able to adjust itself to the fresh wave of women’s liberation.
But today the times have changed, the Indian women has started climbing the ladders of social advance with proud dignity.
Today, women are marching side by side with men in every walk of life, and are at par with men in most fields. From the traditional homemakers, women have come out and marked themselves in every sector that a man is seen including women ambassadors to cabinet ministers, Governors, police, scientists-engineers- doctors, and magistrates.
However, despite the remarkable change in the position of women in India, women belonging to rural areas and the lower income group still live in poverty, ignorance, superstition and continue to be dominated by men. Even though the law gives equal right and treatment to women, they remain exploited.
Hence, education to woman must be ensured and must be made compulsory. If a woman is educated, her family is also educated and in the long run our country is benefitted.
