  • The status of women in India has been subject to
    many great changes over the past few millennia.
    With a decline in their status from the ancient
    to medieval times, to the promotion of equal
    rights by many reformers, their history has been
    eventful. In modern India, women have held high
    offices including that of the President, Prime
    Minister, Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Leader of the
    Opposition, Union Ministers, Chief Ministers and
    Governors.
  • Women's rights under the Constitution of India
    mainly include equality, dignity, and freedom
    from discrimination additionally, India has
    various statutes governing the rights of women.

  • As of 2018, the President of India, the Prime
    Minister of India, the Speaker of the Lok Sabha
    and the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha
    (Lower House of the parliament) have been women.
    However, women in India continue to face numerous
    problems such as sexual assault, gender
    inequality and dowry.
