In free India, women cannot be kept as sheer domestic servants. They have to play a vital role in the development of the country. That is why more and more girls are getting an education. No distinction is now made in the matters of education between boys and girls. Education is bound to give them a place of honor in society.
It is historic that women have been given equal voting rights with men. This shows that they will take an active part in outside affairs also. their voice will now be as forceful and important as that of men. They will now make and unmake a government.
Our constitution similarly, makes no distinction on the basis of caste, creed, or sex. Many a woman has begun to occupy high positions in politics, society, and professions. They have started excelling in the fields hitherto reserved for men m thus the status of women is fast getting a boost.
