GENDER EQUITY-IS IT FOR REAL OR IS IT JUST AN ILLUSSION??

As women continue treading on the path that women liberationists have cleared for us, I am forced to stop and wonder whether the society can actually boast of having taken a steady step towards acheiveing gender equity. Yes,we can boast about quite a few Sonia Gandhis and Kiran bedis,but for every one such successfull woman there are thousands of others who wake up in the morning wondering what crime they had committed to be born as a woman.The no. of “reported” abuse cases seem to be innumerable.And eve teasing has become rather a way of life as society firmly continues to state them to be just minor issues.Never does our society realize that its the minor issues that build a base for the development of bigger ones.Gender equity is not all about equal pay and just education to the privileged few women, it is about bringing a change in the mind set of the society.

A right is never given,its taken. A right given is equivalent to a permission.Till the day the terms like rights for women and women empowerment cease to exist-the question will persist-gender equity- is it for real or is it just an illusion?
