A woman has been called a self less soul, an unselfish giver who devotes her whole life to her home, family and children. The day she is born to the day she passes away, every moment is sacrificed for the well being for others. This oblation makes her mature at an early age and then she is asked to the service of others.
Though a woman works purely out of her heart, she is forced to infinite discriminations and obstructions. The men dominated society does not even give her the right to life, let alone the other fundamental rights. Female feticide, infanticide, dowry related deaths, denial to education and career, child marriages, domestic violence, sexual abuse and many other problems are faced by them. Even in the 21st century, there have been examples of ‘Sati Pratha’ and ill treatment of widows.
But after all these evil practices and discriminatory attitude, women today are breaking barriers and rising to great levels of success and pride. They are standing against the injustices and making a move towards their better reception in the society.
It is still unsure when all the malpractices will be rooted out and when women will achieve their right status but efforts need to be made without failing.
