“It’s been over sixty years since our country gained independence, but Indian women are still not allowed to move independently. Though woman is worshipped here as Goddess here, people can’t just restrain from committing atrocities against them. Women here experience many hardships at various places right from home to working places. Women face a lot of problems and though much is said about the upliftment and progress of women, this space is not big enough to talk about problems about women. Female infanticide, eve-teasing, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, rapes are still common in cities, leave alone villages. There are still many areas where women are not equal rights and are not encouraged to take up education. There are still families and neighborhood who frown when a girl child is born. Dowry practice is still rampant, even thought it has been termed illegal. Women still have to make a lot of sacrifices in every area of their lives. A report shows that the female population stands at 495.4 million out of total 1,028 million Indian population. Thus, in the present population of 1.03 billion, there ought to be 528 million women. Instead, estimates show only 496 million women in the population today. This implies that there are some 32 million “missing” women in India. Some are never born, and the rest die because they do not have the opportunity to survive. Sex-ratio (number of female per 1,000 male) is an important indicator of women’s status in the society. In 1901 there were 972 females per 1,000 males, while by 1971; the ratio has come down to 930 females per 1,000 males. In 1981 there has been only a nominal increase in the female sex ratio within 934 females to 1,000 males. There were only 926 females per 1000 males in India according to 1991 census. the book i want to dedicate to women of india -my mission is to blow on vital global issues for women.
