The Role of Woman in Present Scenario

The nonchalant saunter of woman on the road to progress has been drastic over the past few years. From being the oppressed, women have now made an indelible impact on all walks of life. They have succeeded in carving a niche for themselves everywhere, even in previously male dominated bastions. All this is in stark contrast to deplorable condition of women just half century back. In those days women were reduced to being mere home markers in most cases. Hopes of anything more than nursing or perhaps teaching were quashed by the pressure society exerted. The status of women in India has been subject to many great changes over the past few millennia. From equal status with men in ancient times through the low points of the medieval period, to the promotion of equal rights by many reformers, the history of women in India has been eventful. In modern India, women have held high offices in India including that of the President, Prime Minister, Speaker of the Lok Sabha and Leader of the Opposition. As of 2011[update], the Speaker of the Lok Sabha and the Leader of the Opposition in the were women. There is a common misconception that women have still not advanced in achieving academic degrees. According to Margaret Rossiter, a historian of science, women now earn 54 percent of all bachelor's degrees in the United States. However, although there are more women holding bachelors degrees than men, as the level of education increases, the more men tend to fit the statistics instead of women. At the graduate level, women fill 40 percent of the doctorate degrees and 31 percent of them being in engineering. But now, in the present scenario realizing their lights and recognizing their status, women have set a foot forward to assume leading positions in fields like sports corporate, medicine, engineering or eve politics. Women now have a platform to showcase their talents. Says Kiran Bedi – to be thought of half as useful as a man, I had to work twice as hard. These are the words of a woman who struggled a decade ago.
