we have seen in our families and around us , so many females suffering and struggling in their life for identity. all the legal documents in India needs father's name even when mother is admitted in hospital to give birth of child, she is asked for her husband name which is compulsary , my question is why ????

In current scenario where  so much of injustice is happening to girls/women, rape, cheating, domestic violence, sexual harassments, do we still think that father name is necessary?

most of the cases of crime against women, the male is not ready to take responsibility of the women nor a child, and women and her family is left alone to take care of women herself and the child, moreover when a women marries another male, again question arises of identity of child, also when women gets married she has to change all her documents to husband name, if women has suffered cheating from male and she is pregnant in both the cases it is violence against women where male is not ready to take responsibility.

we are living in the country where we have to start programme like Beti Bachao Beti Padhao which is a shame, when the women will be allowed to give her name to child may it be male or female she and her families will be proud and will empower them unlike in current scenario were male families take pride if male child is born and harasses women and their families for birth of girl child as if it is big mistake by women and her family. Beti Bachao Beti Padhao will be successful when women are empowered to give their name to their child born, as it is women who is giving birth to child keeping the child 9 months in her womb, taking all responsibilities of herself and child and families.

even after so many petitions filed in courts and judgement given under them that female can use her name in legal documents there are authorities which ask for father or husband name not having option of mother's name.

so i request all to kindly join hand in making this possible all legal documents should include mothers maiden name as compulsary .
