Women illiteracy: An upcoming challenge 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 6-10 years 11-14 years 15-17 years Rural Urban According to census 2011, illiteracy of women was 65.46% Its said “mother is the first teacher”, then without women how can india aspire to achieve education for all. So every women should be educated to have a society in which everyone is disciplined , educated and literate.
  7. 7. ENFORCING THE LAW Taking the case of december,2012 in Delhi the main accused was a juvenile and in most certainly going to be punished the least because he was just short of completing his 18 years. This has broken the hope of crore's of people expecting a fair justice. These flaws in laws should be amended & inforced as much as possible to make society a healthy place to live in. Unfair hiring processes- Many cases of casting couch & similar cases are coming in view that degrades the environment of working places & no action has been taken till now…
  8. 8. PROVIDING SECURITY AND OPPORTUNITIES: Giving a sense of security to women by providing only women aboggies in train with proper arrangement of lady security guards. Giving reservations to women in all fields like parliament, universities etc so that there can be equal participation by both sexes as per the population. In panchayati raj, there are 50% seats reserved for women in some states. More governmental as well as none governmental organisations should be established to work in all areas specially those having low sex ratio & low literacy rate. Regular programs should be there to enlighten the parents to send their daughters for attaining higher education as they do for their son and avoid early marriage. This will give ample opportunities for girls to be something in their life as an individual. Law providing equal wages for all should be enforced properly so that the women working for same hours as men should be paid to same level. Lack of funds in sports. So, funds and opportunities should be provided to girls to participate in sports and other extra curriculars. There should be a special cell appointed for encouraging women empowerment
  9. 9. The Janta Party Government in Karnataka in 1991 passed a Bill to implement 25% reservation for women in local elections. This spurred a national debate on the issue of reservation for women in several other states. The representation of women in the Lok Sabha has basically remained stagnant.It reached a “high” of 8% in 1984. This figure went up by a mere 0.2% in 20004. This despite the fact that all major national parties in recent years have declared through their manifestos that they would implement a 33% reservation for women in all legislatures. One – third of all seats in Lok Sabha and State Legislative Assemblies shall be reserved for women. Karnataka tops the Country in the represetation of the women in the Panchayati Raj institutions with women winning 43.7% of the seats in gram panchayats and 36.4% in Zilla Parishad. THEN TO……NOW
