From the Author:
The worth of a civilization can be judged from the mutual respect of human especially among men and women. The status of women in India has been subject to many great changes over the past. From a largely poorer status of women in ancient times, to the promotion of women rights by many reformers, the history of women in India has been eventful. As a result of this retrieval of freedom, women in India have distinguished themselves with unique positions. Now they are participating even in politics and administration.
But still, the gender equality in all fields of life are continuing to be a debatable issue. Women are both abused as well as revered in the Indian society; sometimes within the same household. Awareness about any problem becomes the starting point for solving the same. This book is such an effort to explain the status of different categories of Indian women. The chapter on Domestic Violence Act may help the readers especially the affected women to protect themselves legally, from the extreme form of male chauvinism. Since it is a proven fact that the development of any country is directly proportional to the Gender Development Index, this book is written with the intention of motivating the Indian Government to act more prudently to raise the status of this prestigious group of society, who are equally the instruments of God's creation.
