Woman Earlier and at present

Earlier women were exploited brutally and they endured many misery and sufferings.
But they have started realizing their worth and opportunities and rights offered to them by the Constitution and have started raising their voice against the Injustice caused on them.
It’s because of these ladies alone that, now the condition of women are far better and is even becoming more better each passing day.

Abstract In Women Equality
Albeit, all these equality being provided women section of our Society is not fully considered to being equal to men.
There always comes a point, where they are always thought as being inferior to men, no matter how much capable or potent they may be.
Women are always thought as objects to be kept at home, and involved in household works like cleaning, grooming, washing of utensils, etc.
Also some parents don’t give their Daughter an opportunity to study, they are made to sit at home and made to leave her house by the age of 21.
But luckily, women are progressing with an accelerated rate and are getting out of their homes and working, which never would have their Grandparent’s or parent’s time witnessed.
Working even in a Factory or at a sweet shop offers woman much liberty and freedom than to those who are encaged in their homes.
Woman are making a remarkable progress in every field, some of them becomes highly paid Government officers, some are also becoming presidents, some great sportswoman, and also some good political speakers.
But they are not given and paid equal attention in terms of equality.
At the top of both Industry and Government, stubbornly the face is of males
Woman are also not paid equal to men, and also granted few rights and safety.
Also the number of Women in the Boards of Directors of large companies also remains low.
Women’s access to leadership position is being hindered and remains male dominated.
In U.S.A only 23 largest corporations have a female chief executive officer.
Women don’t have powers in other areas either, even till 2013 they made up only 21.4% of Parliamentarians.
Most recent figures shows that, 17.2% of ministerial posts are held by women- up from 16.1% in 2008 this shows how slow progress can be.
It’s not surprising that the law doesn’t work for women.
Many who are in powerful positions, face a daily barrage of sexist behavior from men, which in many countries is outlawed at workplace.
Eighth percent of woman aged 30-39 see a decline of their income, when they have children.
Despite of the face that girls are forging far than boys in terms of educational attainments, this doesn’t always pay dividends when it comes to employment.
An International Labor Organization ( ILO) found that among the reports of 83 countries, women earns 10-30% less than men.
Even in U.S women working on full time, earned only 77% of the men’s wage.
Empowerment of women is the basic way to achieve social Equality
