Role of Women

Indian women are powerful entities.  In a male dominated Indian society, the typical Indian woman had essayed her role as a daughter, sister, wife, mother and a friend to perfection.  The Indian Constitution today, has given equal status for both men and women.  Indian women have distinguished themselves in various fields occupying important positions in society as politicians, teachers, lawyers, doctors, administrators and diplomats.  There is no sphere of life or activity where Indian women have not made their presence felt or proved their worth.  Despite considerable struggles and challenges prevalent in the Indian society, women in India have made tremendous progress during the last fifty years.  Women in India participated fully in areas such as education, sports, politics, media, art and culture, service sectors, science and technology etc. Indira Gandhi, who served as Prime Minister of India for an aggregate period of fifteen years, is the world’s longest serving Prime Minister. The constitution of India guarantees to all Indian Women equalit, no discrimination by the state, equality of opportunity and equal pay for equal work.
