...there is no field or profession where women cannot be seen......they have surpassed all the assumptions and myths...BUT...still women faces many challenges ..or bars set by men!
Indian..women still faces many hardships and rejections in male dominated Indian society..women are still vulnerable to all types of violence including Abuse... physical or emotional. our nation still need to have some hard laws..when it comes to women’s rights.
....Indian society..we still have celebration which goes as per gender only....Son ..as legal heir..and most of the will or property goes to him...unless decided! Dowry ...is still very prevalent....they don't ask openly ..But expectations are there!...
Recently on of my relatives posted some pictures from India..showing up the grand wedding that took place...it was shocking for me to see the amount of money spent by girls parents....I wish they could have done same for her studies...where a girl could have a strong footage ..and nobody had any expectations from her in future...in fact lot of respect for her knowledge and awareness!!
..The commercials..if we see most of the time..its women with the laundry or dishes..or cooking in the kitchen..did ya ever happen to see men..doing the same ..its rare!!this is common ,women are meant for these kind of work!confined to the four walls of house!
on the contrary there have been women who made a mark in the society..and left everyone spell bound..whether it wasIndira Nooyi, Kalpana Chawla, Sunita Williams, Pratibha Patil and others.,BUT..they are jus few..a handful...rest eighty percent are still in that sphere..and stretch...where its overlooked and expected as normal chore...not realizing the hard work and effort without any gratitude!
women are legal citizens of the country and have equal rights with men (Indian Parliament). Because of a lack of acceptance from the male dominant society, Indian women suffer immensely. Everybody reading this article would surely agree that many women find it difficult to return to work after having children. One of the reasons being that there are rarely any provisions made for childcare in the workplace and, in these cases, women are forced to find someone to look after the children while they are at work. Most of the neutral families need two incomes to enjoy a good standard of living, where a woman finds herself doing two jobs – one at office and the other at home. So the position of women has rather deteriorated than improving.
..as a kid I always heard from my mom what ladies in villages had to go through and when they were uneducated...how they suffered .....so..first and the foremost...is providing good education at professional level...and then saying No to dowry!!....we don't need to make others happy....but our self and our kids first...
we don't need to join that heard of sheep's....or follow blindly what others are doing!set and make your own principles....lets others follow you!
Save the girl child and respect women!
