Role of women through ages: A study of Indian women
Bhawya sachdeva Mukhi, Dr. Robin Anand
The status and role of women has been an important aspect of study in every era. In ancient times women were portrayed as chaste, enduring, sacrificing, self-denying benevolent….on one hand while there existed another class of women called Deva- Dassin on the other. Conditions of women have gone through different phases. Each phase has wounded them deeply. Inequality and discrimination have been vital issues in the life of most of them since ancient past. In modern times the role of women in India has changed drastically in the past decade under the light of globalisation and commercialisation. Today’s woman is playing important and top roles in almost all sectors of life along with men. This paper is an attempt to investigate the status of women in modern society regarding Education, Health, Equality, Family life, Job and above all the respect earned by them. It also explores the factors which can be attributed for deteriorated status of women in Indian society inspite of progress achieved by them at various levels.
