The status of Women in India
has been subject to many great changes over
the past few millenniums. However, women in
India generally are still exposed to numerous
social issues. According to a global study conducted
by Thomason Reuters, India is the “fourth
most dangerous country” in the world for
women. There are numerous other reasons as well,
why the Indian women have so hard life to live
in and so less opportunities to grow and develop
Female infants are often
denied the same food, education and medical
care as boys. As a result they suffer from
malnutrition, poor health and lack of education.
Many poor families, who
can’t afford to pay dowry to their daughters,
choose to murder their female infants as the
dowry is a symbol of status in the society.
Domestic violence is common
and a serious problem.
In remote villages, witchcraft
accusations and punishments still occur.
Sexual harassment and discrimination
at the workplace is common.
Early marriages also contribute
miserably to their hard life.
DAWN organize special sessions
on i. Free legal Aid ii. Health related issues
such as Child care, importance of breast feeding,
Family Planning methods and Gynecological diseases,
anemia, immunization etc. and iii. Awareness
on the evil of abortion, infanticide, child
marriage, female feticide, women exploitation,
communicable diseases & Child labour and
iv. to uplift their life income oriented vocational
trainings and v. counseling and also honoring
them by awarding those who excel in different
field on women day.
These kinds of activities help
the women to develop their skills and knowledge
and above all their self- esteem and confidence
that helps them in getting better employment
and respect in the society.
