Answer :

2. A smaller number of girls go to higher secondary.


3. Women are paid small at work compared to men. There are lesser jobs that pay highly to the women.

1. The equal remuneration act, it states that the men and women should be equally paid to equal work.


2. Compulsory school education up to the age of 14.
