Deepavali is certainly a wonderful festival celebrated with much pomp and joy. Lakshmi Pooja is also done where we pay reverence to the god of wealth. Women in India according to the old scriptures are believed to be the incarment of goddes Lakshmi. But despite all this and the modern attributes of gender equality do we really treat our Women with reverence. This is a big question?Women today are still used as pawns and cheated by men. Despite feminism and women trying to come up in society there are so much bottlenecks she has to face. More so religion and politics also do not give much rights to women. We have only so far provided e toilets and free sanitary knapkins for the uplift ment of women. But otherwise it is still a big struggle for women to come up in society as they have to battle against male dominance and egos at every step. In Asian countries women still are in the lower strata compared to western countries. Being a women is still trying in these modern times.
