What is satus of women in Hinduism?
Hindus scriptures accord women a place of equality, honour and dignity. Hindus conceive God in both male and female manifestations. Many workship God through female deities. No Hindu ceremony or sacrament in a family is considered complete, unless husband and wife perform it together. Ancient hindu society produced many illustrious female sages, seers and intellectuals; Lopamudra, Urvashi, Yami, Ghosha, gargi and Maitreyi, just to name a few. They are remembered with great reverence.
