Do women enjoy equal privilege in the society as men do?

What do you think is the status of women in the country? Are they enjoying equal rights or is it still continuing to be a male-chauvinistic society?

Status of women is improving as well as deteriorating. In the class structure of India the status of upper class women has improved while that of working women and poor women has detiriorated.
As such the situation is much better than 20 years back, with more freedom and safety compared to before. Also the women is educated about her rights. There are organizations like NCW to look after women affairs but is lacking much clout and pro activity.

I agree with you Rajeev. The poor get poorer and this coniditon is just worsening as days pass by. The government (politicians) seem to take no responsibility to enhance our country's status.
But, on the contrary, don't you think that most women have come out of their shells, that is, they are no longer confined to the four wall of the house.They take initiative to compete with their counter-parts and try to be successful.I also feel that they are no longer dependent enitirely on their family/spouse.

there is a general perception in todays modern society that men and women r equal.and modern values do accept it as a fact of life.there is a lot of talk on tv and newspaper where ppl say that women walk shoulder to shoulder with men and also surpassing them at times
so i want to ask that if women r so strong and competitive why do they ask for reservations?whether in lok sabha,buses, railways etc.
recently i visited delhi and travelled in metrothere on top of few seats it is written "leave them for women senior citizens etc."so if they r so proud of their abilities why dont they object to such things which try to give them an extr inch compared to their counterparts?

A Free Medical Camp was held on Sunday by the students of XLRI Jamshedpur in collaboration with the NGO, SEEDS (Socio Economic and Educational Development Society). This is the second in the series of medical camps being conducted by the Social Initiative Group for Managerial Assistance (SIGMA) of XLRI, in the Musabani block since November last year.
The camp was help in the Vikrampur village of the Musabani block, roughly 70 kms from the city of Jamshedpur. The camp was attended by 260 people, many of whom had covered large distances by foot in order to avail the medical facilities being offered there.
3 eminent doctors from the city, Dr. B..K. Pani, Dr. B. Mohapatra and Dr. Ranjit, attended the camp and patiently examined the large number of patients who had gathered there. The medicines that were distributed were contributed by doctors and medical practitioners of Jamshedpur.
The camp was a part of an initiative taken by SIGMA of XLRI and was immensely supported by the Secretary of SEEDS, Dr. Shubhra Dwivedi. The mission of SEEDS is to build an enabling environment for strengthening the capacity of the grass-root people leading to their empowerment. Many field coordinators, who work with SEEDS, joined hands in helping the students on the day of the camp.
"SIGMA considers such activities to be a vehicle for bigger and sustainable income generation projects that we can organise for these people ", says Shilpi Nanda, the Secretary of SIGMA.
The students of XLRI look forward to support from individuals and Corporates in funding similar social ventures in the future.

Women are turned to be financially independent which makes them to enjoy almost equal privileges to men.

I think women are given equal rights as that of men only in papers but in real world. the simple fact is the number of men in supreme positions to that of women shows they are very much backward.
Inspite of giving equal rights and reservations too the benefits are not reaching he needy people.
But when compared to few years back the situation got small changes the increasing number of girls in colleges and schools show a good sign of their role.
in fact the female employees in MNC's and other companies is increasing which is a good to welcome.
Apart from the reservations parents should encourage their children and have to treat both boys and girls equally.
There are so many places still in INDIA where parents show a negative impression if they have girls. this has to be eradicated and they sholud know that both girls and boys are equal.
Then the percentage of working women will be incresed and this automatically bring desired results.....

I think women are not getting correctly rights in the society as though they have rights.
So many Mens are going to job and for study but women are less in getting job and parents will not send girl child to school for some reason and in home womens are beaten up by husband or family members and sexually harassment on them.
Mens are majority in society but womens are minority in society.
And also when parents came to know girl child is born they will get aborted before born .so by this steps womens population decreasing because womens still lag behind by men and they did not get correct rights and that rights are not followed correctly.
Like in india womens are little has no rights.

It is true that womens are now a days empowered and they are found equal to mens in all the fields. Earlier there was a saying "Udyogam purusha lakshanam", which means job is a characteristic of a men and to be a bread winner. But now a days both womens and mens are together working hard with no bias.
But yes in some of the occasional reasons like family decision making, status in society and in other aspects, women lags,. They are given preference but not to larger extent.
Overall I feel this is more men dominated society than female. A men is given more prominence with it is considered with a women in may of the aspects.

yes i agree with you and also nowadays girls are getting allowed to get what they want. Now they are having the rights to get the things what boys are getting. But still there are many girls does not broke up their walls and come outside. Still this can be changed by literating the people. Both Boys and Girls should be treated equal in the community. There should be no discrimination. This can help the Woman to come outside the world. And enjoy their freedom which the world has given to her.

Although women has reached a considerable good status now - a - days but yet we need to look into many more regions who are still to touch this magic touch to make the men aware that women are also human beings ..some of our backward regions are still with the orthodox thoughts and backward enough to touch the progress and modernity of this changing world...India has still to go a long way ..as most of our regions are still to develop and reach the urban areas and adopt the latest trends in their lives...
