In Indian society females are often discriminated. Their health, education, prosperity and freedom are all impacted.
People in cities think these days that the situation is improving as they see women and girls at work places and taking part in school activities. But the truth is that still a majority of 60% women are illiterate in the country. One girl in every three is denied the basic right to education. The problem is worse in conservative Rajasthan than almost anywhere else in India. In the social milieu of Rajasthan as elsewhere in India, gender discrimination against girls and women occurs at every stage of their life, ranging from the home and school to the community and society at large.
We therefore strongly believe that educating girls is one of the best ways to tackle these issues. We feel girls should be given exclusive attention so that they are seen and heard. Education would make them confident and would also make them aware of their rights.
We are glad for the 40% female population getting better opportunities but we are at the same time worried for the majority 60% who are lagging behind. Many government schemes and policies have been introduced with the aim of giving better facilities to girls however, inappropriate provisioning and other constraints continue to produce sub optimal outcomes.
We want the government to look into the implementation and make sure that the scheme or policy is made available to the girls and women actually needing it.
Together we can ensure a safe and secure future through education for her. We are quite hopeful that a small step from our side will bring about a big difference in the society.
Let's stand together and strive to achieve the dream of gender equality to an extent that it becomes a reality.
