Women‘s emancipation in India Presentation Transcript

  • 1. By, Samridhi Gupta
  • 2.  In Indian society women were treated generally as maid or slaves as if they had no will or desire of their own.  They had to follow their husbands in all matters women were given as payment for loss to a gambling opponent.  To show devotion, they were forced to burn themselves alive by jumping onto the funeral pyre of their husbands after their death.  This practice, called “SATI” continued until the end of 17th century when this custom was outlawed in spite of the dismay it caused the Hindu religious Leaders.
  • 3.  Although SATI was widely practiced until 19th century and still continues in some of the end of the remote areas of India. In certain regions of India , women are offered to the priests as things to be exploited.  In others they were sacrificed to Hindu gods to please them or seek rain. Some Hindu laws even declare that : “the unwanted patience, the tornados or tsunamis, death, hell fire, poison, snakes are no less evil than women.”
  • 4.  At last many people made various objections against women but yet the women have proved all these thinking wrong by working towards progress.  The women today improvised their image in the society by excelling in almost each and every field.  This is all today possible because of common but great personalities such as Pandita Ramabai and Ramabai Ranade. Pandita Ramabai Ramabai Ranade
