Gender is a dichotomous social category that prescribes behaviours, attitudes,
feelings and other characteristics as being appropriate for a male or a female . That is,
knowin gan individual’s gender allow us to place him or her in a distinct social category
and they judge his or her behaviours based on our expectations for that category.
Discriminations based on gender is a common civil rights violation and in order to ameliorate
the condition of women in India , legislature passed large volume of enactments. Acheiving
gender equality is crucial to the development of peaceful societies. Gender equality entails the
concept that all human beings are free to develop their personalities and make choices without
limitations set by stereotypes. Gender issue is a significant topic of discussion, mainly in
underdeveloped and developing nations today.It is because of the realisation that the
development that they aspire cannot be achieved unless we achieve gender equality by
empowering their women.
