Research Methodology
As I write this project, I describe the social movement for equality for all and also the equality of women in society. Much as women and the girl child have gained acceptance in western Society and have the free will to marry a partner of their choice, in India we still see the expression of honor killings, sexual depredations against children in orphanages etc. There should be no discrimination against the girl child. If there is discrimination there will be a breakdown in society and there will be a clear division between the upper classes of society, the middle class and the lower class. If we concentrate on petty issues like who our daughter marries or go against our duties in orphanages and abuse the children who live their, there will be no upliftment of the downtrodden, no growth amongst the poor. Indeed there should be strong deterrence on the part of society against such heinous acts of injustice and self gratification. If all people work together for the emancipation of the masses Indian Society will improve in quality. Chapter – 1

The preamble to establish the International Labour Organization recalled that "universal and lasting peace can be established only if it is based upon social justice.In the later 20th century, social justice was made central to the philosophy of the social contract, primarily by John Rawls in A Theory of Justice (1971). Aristotle always dreamt of human potentiality and civic happiness which were tempered by his sociological awareness of the institutional limits and structural possibilities of Athenian democracy. In the Nichomachean ethics and the politics,Aristotle examines the relationship between the good and constitutions which is between the virtuous life and the political institutions that nurture as well as sustain it. Bharat ratna babasaheb Dr BR Ambedkar also known as the chief architect of constitution of india is the man of millennium for social justice in the sense he became the messiah or deliverer to be more specific of the dalits or to be specific the untouchables including the scheduled caste,scheduled tribes,other backward classes and the women who...
