RE: A committee to ensure gender neutral and non-sexist content in CBSE/ICSE/state board books

Why is there inequality between the sexes in India? one might ask. The foundation for this inequality was laid at a very early age, when kids read sentences like "Ram school jaata hai, Seeta khana banati hai". What we read greatly shapes up how we think, particularly at that young age when the kids are so impressionable. I seek support of my countrymen to encourage the government to form a committee that will scan all ICSE/CBSE NCERT/State board books for this type of gender biased and sexist content so that kids grow up with a concept of equality in mind.
