“Women still lag

Answer :

Women still lag much behind men in India despite some improvement since independence.

1. The literacy rate in women is 54% as compared to 76% among men.

2. A small proportion of girls students go for higher studies. This is because the parents prefer spending their resources on the education of the boys rather than spending it equally on both the sons and daughters.

3. The proportion of women employed in highly paid and valued jobs is very small. On an average, an Indian woman works one hour more than an average man every day.
