Men And Women Are Born Equal But
The constitution of India gives equality to all its citizens irrespective of the gender. Unfortunately, such a situation does not exist in the India society, Women are regarded as second-class citizens in our country. Such was not the case in ancient India. Our scriptures mention many notable women poets, administrators, religious leaders, and philosophers. Men considered it an honor to place women as their equal. But as centuries went by the position of women deteriorated in this country. So much so that there came a time when women were considered to be a commodity to be bought and sold in the market. She was banished to the four walls of the house. She was denied the right to education and expression. Her position reached an all-time low when her parents started killing her as soon as she was born. With the advent of modern times, the situation of women has shown only a marginal improvement. Even today there are pockets of villages where female infanticides are practiced every day. Bride burning, public molestation, harassment at the place of work, and dual responsibilities of home and workplace have reduced the existence of a woman to a machine. Steps are currently being taken to bring about social sensitization for women. But it will be a long time before the status of women in this country undergoes a radical change.
