(a) Literacy Rate?The literacy rate among women is only 54% as compared to 76% among men. Similarly, a smaller proportion of girl students go for higher studies because parents prefer to spend their resources for their boys? education than spending equally on their daughters.
(b) Unpaid Work?The proportion of women among the highly paid and valued jobs is still very small. Though on an average, Indian women work one hour more than men everyday, most of them are not paid equally and therefore, their work is often not valued.
(c) Sex Ratio?In many parts of India, parents prefer to have sons, and find ways to have the girl child aborted before she is born. This has led to a decline in the child sex ratio (the number of girl children per thousand boys) in the country to merely 927.
(d) Domestic Violence?There are reports of various kinds of harassment, exploitation and violence against women. Both urban as well as rural areas have become unsafe for women They are not safe even within their own homes from beating and other forms of domestic violence.
