Essay - Gender Discrimination in India

1 comment

Gender Discrimination in India

Overview
  •  Gender discrimination is highly visible in India. 
  • Gender discrimination in different fields. 
    • Economic front
    • Education
    • Healthcare sector 
    • Politics 
    • Career choices 
  • Government of India passed different laws and launched new schemes. 
  • Other organisations working against gender discrimination.
Gender discrimination in India means health, education, economic and political discrimination between men and women. Today our country offers a lot of opportunities to women with women having a voice in everyday life, the business world as well as in political life.

Nevertheless India is still a male dominated country, where women are often seen as subordinate and inferior to men. Even though India is moving away from the male dominated culture, discrimination
is still highly visible in rural as well as in urban areas, throughout each and every strata of society. While women are guaranteed equality under the Constitution, legal protection has a limited effect where patriarchal traditions prevail.
