Women face a lot of problems and though much is said about the upliftment and progress of women, this space is not big enough to talk about problems about women. Female infanticide, eve-teasing, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, rapes are still common in cities, leave alone villages. There are still many areas where women are not equal rights and are not encouraged to take up education. There are still families and neighborhood who frown when a girl child is born. Dowry practice is still rampant, even thought it has been termed illegal. Women still have to make a lot of sacrifices in every area of their lives. Even the most educated of men feel that a woman should not work after marriage (even though she may be interested in her career) just to pander to his male-ego.

Women themselves are a problem, how can they face problem. In households often a daughter-in-law is harassed and that too with the consent of her mother-in-law , a woman. If the mother-in-law do not support the family members, no one can harass the daughter-in-law in the family. So far eve teasing is concerned, the victim percentage of girls with indecent dressing and skin tight apparels is much higher than the girls with decent dressings and loose clothings. Moreover in offices also sexual remarks and double meaning dialogues are repeated in front of only those lady collegues who take active interest in such gossiping by their counterparts. Woman do have to make sacrifices because the omnipotent GOD has made them so. Why not GOD made conceivement a matter of chance that sometime male will bear the pregnancy and sometime the female. It is GOD who has done injustice to women and not the society and if anyone is to be cursed after GOD then that is the women herself.

Women! whether they r educated/uneducated face lot of problems. starting from getting hit by husbands(happens when they refuse to budge /listen to what their husbands say) to motherin laws who want their daughter in laws to follow rules and regulations they have framed, insulting womens parents, sisters, brothers and other relatives in the name of customs and traditions, sister in laws who try to poke their nose and try to control their parents house, brother in laws and father in laws who consider them as mere a servant or bank(working women) and offcourse parents who get their daughters maaried off as if they are burden on them(believe me this happens in most of the houses)

The problems Indian women face are same as those faced by their counterparts in other nations. Additionally, there are some unique problems in India for women.

* The Dowry system prevalent in India calls for a large sum of money to be paid to the groom at the time of marriage. Brides that cannot meet the husband's expectations are sometimes harassed after the wedding. (see: Dowry System)
* Desire for male progeny has caused natural imbalance and numerous problems for women.
* Unwanted touching of women in public places -- this problem is known as Eve teasing in India.
* Unequal share of inheritance -- in most Hindu families, only the sons inherit the wealth of the parents as married girls are considered no longer part of the family.
* Lack of public toilets --this is more of a hygiene problem of India, but making even more difficult for women to get out of the house.
* Ill treatment of widows -- many families blame the untimely death of a husband to the ...more

Everyone has his/her own problem. Who on this earth is not having a problem? It all depends how the individual takes it. It is said, there is no problem on this earth which is not having a solution. The only thing that matters is whether you want to be a part of the problem or the part of solution--you have to decide!

It is true that women have to leave their parents to get married. They have to adjust to new family life. The have to serve all needs of their families. What husband wants, what children need, what in laws expect--everything has to be seen. Growing children in womb, their birth, nurturing and so on. Cultural restrictions, behavioral restrictions, physical restrictions suppress their minds. But then there are women who come out of the box and earn fame, respect, wealth and everything that is virtuous! There are many examples of highly achievement motivated women--freedom fighters, educationists, scientists, administrators, entrepreneurs--you name a field an ...more
