Essay on Status of Women in India 

Status of Women in India
In ancient times women had an honorable position in the society. They were equal partners of men in every field of life. Sita, Savitri, Gargi and Anusuya are the pillars of Indian womenhood. During the Muslim rule women lost their position of honor and right of equality. They were kept within the four walls of the house. During the British rule their position remained unchanged.

A great change has come in the position of a women after Indian independence. Our constitution has given equal rights to women in all fields of life. They have been given equal voting rights with men. They now enjoy a place of honor in society. Today women are successfully paying their role as teachers, doctors, engineers, lawyers, administrators, politicians and social workers.

In the political field, women are playing their role successfully. A few years ago late Mrs. Indira Gandhi was the Prime Minister of India. She was a leader of world fame. Mrs. Viajy Lakshmi Pandit occupied the chair of President of life United Nations Organization. Mrs. Vijaya Raje Scindia was the Vice President of Bhartiya Janta Party. Now there are so many women who are physician, surgeons and medical experts. They are working as doctors and nurses in several important hospitals, both in India and outside.

In the field of education women are doing service in a large number. Women are considered better teachers for little children. Some of them are heads of the educational institutions, professors and lecturers in colleges and teachers in schools.

Today women are adopting other challenging careers too. They are police officers, army officers, pilots and air-hostesses. Mrs. Kiran Bedi is a successful police officer. The carrers of telephone operators, T.V. announcers, typists, receptionists and secretaries are nearly reserved for them. Besides these jobs, some of them are managing vast businesses of their own.

The place of women in free India is becoming more and more secure. She is no longer confined within the four walls of the house. She is on the way of progress. Her future is lovesome and bright.
