Women Then Vs. Women Now
Women during the earlier times were not given the desired respect, yet they went on serving the society silently. Women had the power to bring the change, yet their voices went unheard and their presence was just secondary in comparison to the dominating male chauvinism existing. But since the earlier times, women have fought all odds to emerge as a winner and history is replete with all kinds of examples of courageous women such as Indira Gandhi, Rani Lakshmibai and many more. The list is just endless. Women now are more empowered and completely aware of their rights in the society. With their sheer power, society has finally accepted the stand of women in everyday life. Society has been paving way for women in every sphere of life, from education to health care to jobs to politics and so on. The voices of women today are finally heard.
