Women status in India has many great changes over the past few millennia. Women in India in the past faced many challenging problems i.e. abortion, dowry, restriction on widow remarriage, gender inequality, neglected during childhood, sexual harassment. During ancient time, many reformers promoted equal status of men and women in India. So, we need to do justice that starts from home. Women upliftment should start at the grassroot level by protecting women from abuses and harassment.
