A STUDY GENDER ISSUES IN INDIAN

Feminism in India is a set of movements aimed at defining, establishing, and defending equal political, economic, and social rights and equal opportunities for Indian women. It is the pursuit of women’s rights within the society of India. Like their feminist counterparts all over the world, feminists in India seek gender equality: the right to work for equal wages, the right to equal access to health and education, and equal political rights. Indian feminists also have fought against culturespecific issues within India’s patriarchal society, such as inheritance laws and the practice of widow immolation known as Sati.
