Today, India has reached the zenith of success in many fields like science and technology, literature, entertainment and much more. But there are some issues that are still prevalent in the country and more prominently in the rural India is gender discrimination.

Rural India is the actual soul of the country where a maximum of its population resides yet it is also the most neglected and ignored by the government. The major victims of the issues that are present in the rural India are the women. Rural Indian women are facing a lot of problems.

Women are in the real sense the backbone of our society but in rural India, their role is considered to be that of caretakers and child rears and educational would make not benefits to them in their roles according to the typical mentality of people living in the villages.

Gender discrimination is rampant is many villages of India especially in the states of Rajasthan, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. Gender discrimination implies giving a superior position to men due to the prevailing mindset of patriarchal society in India. Due to this, women are kept confined to their households and not allowed to participate in any activities like elections, discussion, participating in major festivals, etc.

The world needs strong women, women who will lift and build others, who will love and be loved. Women who live bravely both tender and fierce. Women of indomitable will.
