Are women emancipated yet? If not, what more needs to be done for equality?
Though there are hundreds of movements againts sex discrimination and treating women as lesser beings, I believe we still do not have reached a stage where women are given equal stature and rights. I still believe that we are living in a patriarchial and pseudo-male society.
The question here is, are the women at par? If not, what are we not doing to make that happen?
I ask this question again not to spark a dialogue full of reform-talk and big scale projects and awareness programs. Theses have been happeneing but the basic psyche of the society hasn't changed. What we need now is to ponder upon ways to change the way women are percieved, for good.
