All for Women Em­pow­er­ment

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Apro­pos the re­port ‘Shani Shing­na­pur Tem­ple Opens Its Gates to Women’ (Apr 9), for the real em­pow­er­ment of women and gen­der equal­ity, one has to look at the ar­eas where they have been ghet­toed. Fe­male foeti­cide, fe­male in­fan­ti­cide, dowry, os­ten­ta­tious mar­riages, de­nial of proper ed­u­ca­tion, etc, are more burn­ing prob­lems that make women sub­hu­man. The brigade’s bravura and brawn dis­played at the tem­ple premises, if de­ployed on these mat­ters, would have brought more tan­gi­ble re­sults for women.
