A Highlight By Naethanz On Women Empowerment Then And Now

By: Ranjith Thomas

This is such a strange reality that people have to go so much of research to knowthe very true reality of the rights of women. The women in media have suffered through a lot. In the last 60 year India may have been living as a free country but as the women of our country are. I won’t lie there are some millstoneachieved by our country in the oathof women empowerment. But is that enough are all the women of our country free from so called social norm which on the first placed are just some uselesscustoms without base and which are still running because they used to before. From the last 60 years there are achievements and down fall in tot the path of women empowerment.

At the dawn of history India started on her unending quest and trackless centuries which are filled with her striving and the grandeur of her success and her failures. Through good and ill fortunes alike she has never lost sight of that quest or forgotten the ideals which gave her strength. We end today a period of ill fortunes and India discovers herself again. This is the words said by our honorable prime minster of IndiaMr. Jawaharlal Nehru. But would these words mean anything to the position of women in India. Even this great man himself stated our country as “her”. But still no one never really cared about the position of women. It was only after 1960 the shard act when women were just started to give some kind of power on their own life. The sharda act tried to remove from the rule of growing up and ultimate be thrown into unwanted marriage at the age of adolencence,this act as passed by the British government but was very much implied after India got independence. But still unfortunately there are some laces where women still don’t have the right to choose for themselves.

We have to believe this reality that in India for a women everything is marriage. They have to learn to cook and clean and how to keep your house in good condition and all that stuffWith a motive that there is nothing to do for a women other than marriage. And after all this still a women family has to pay a sum called “dowry”;‘Which I mainly define as a price given by a women family to have a somewhat good husband for life’. The act of 1961 the dowry act helped women with this problem. Any women can file a case against the family who are asking for dowry and the family will get arrested for the charges. Even though this act helped in lowering the dowry system but still is in practice in the name of “wedding gifts”.

The other mile stone in the pathof women employment was the “ sarva shikwsha abhiyan “which was started in the year 2000 to give women the right of educatingthemselves.Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, whether you like it or not. Thomas Henry Huxley. Education let women empower themselves on their own this helped tem understand their position in this world. This made them understood that they are equal. Education made a tremendous change in the life of every woman. Ever since women understood their power, there is not a single place where women did not have a place for themselves. We can’t deny this fact that from the last 10 yrs. girls have topped the ratio of having the hi9ghest amount of percentage rate in 10th and 12th examination. This is a perfect example we that if women are given chance they can touch the highest mismark.

But sadly even this glory is showed by the part of disrespecting a women’s right to her freedom. Where a women is going to the mission of moon and getting elected asCEO of a big company. The same place women are raped and left to die on street and sadly are somewhat invisible to the educated person wandering on street who yells, every time that they are always been there to help the women of India’s. What should we call these hypocrites of our own country who doesn’t want our country to stand with the proud feel of “yes we respect not only our mother, sister, daughter or wife but they even care for the unknown women wandering on street that is teased by other person?
