The present position of woman in India has changed. Goodwill of woman has increased with the changing scenario. If we take into account, then we can see woman is actively participating into the society. There are many cases where woman is still struggling hard to become a respectful part of the society and is still facing many challenges. These come under the category of rural area women. To foster the image of these women, we need to organize campaigns to make them alert at every level and to support them on every step, to take suitable actions in the society.
Women Commission has been focusing in rural areas along with urban areas. Literacy and education have spread due to various schemes of the government and because of this the commission is getting success in carrying the information of rights to the women in rural areas. Media is also playing an important role in showing sensitivity towards issues related to women.
It was said that Capital punishment is very important. It was also suggested that they should be made impotent so they repent every day of their life. It is very important, unless such punishments are meted to the culprits, women will not feel secure in our country. Just passing a resolution won’t be sufficient and the step needs to be backed by strong action.
