The Place of Women In Indian Society


 Tagore said."women are the ornaments of a society ." Truly in the past ,Indian Women occupied an isolated position in the society.Some of them were like Lilawati and others established themselved as saints ans scholars.

     But, in the later period, The position of women was low. They did not get the light of education. Their life was restricted in the four walls of their house.In the past, their was the "Sati" system. A man could marry as many times as he wanted, but young women were not allowed to remarry but had to become a "Sati".i.e., they had to give up their life with the death of their Husband.Women were treated as slaves and far from freedom. child marriage was frequent and young girls were married to men much older than them.

     But great men like Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Pandit Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar, Shri Jyotiba Phule, Dayanand Saraswati and Mahatma Gandhi took action and improved the condition of Indian Women.The doors of education were opened to them.They were given employment in schools,colleges,offices and other fields. Presently women have also taken professional jbs like doctors, lawyers,professors etc.They have also started participating in Military training and police force.

     I Free India,Our constitution  grants women equality of status and opportunity with men. Child Marriage is banned and widow remarriages have become common too.

     But inspite of all these laws and efforts by the organization,women in India still have to face,to some extent, the problems of dowry,purdah.Total change in the outlook of the society is the crying need of the moment. The problems of dory-deaths ,rapes and malnutrition can be solved to the large extent if education can be imparted to every woman.

     Indian Women are distinguishing themselves in various spheres of life as politicians, poets,diplomats and scholars. In free India the condition of women is becoming more and more secure with the passage of time. Let us hope that Indian women have a Glorious and honorable future.
