Has there been any improvement in the status of women in modern Hindu society ?
Reform movements that have swept across India emphasized restoring women to the prestige they once enjoyed was the key to the betterment of Hindu society in general was the key to the betterment of Hindu society in mass education, this awareness has gathered momentum. The progress made in less than fifty years by urban Hindu women in every field has been phenomenal. Hindu women have become doctors, lawyers, managers, engineers, elected politicians, scientists, pilots, police officers and joined every other field that was previously man’s domain. However, progress in rural India has been much slower due to the low level of education.
This Q/A was taken from the book Hinduism: Myth and Reality written by Ajit Adhopia and published by Inderlekh Publication.
