The last century saw a great leap forward in the struggle for women’s human rights. In many countries women won the right to vote and take part in government, though in some they did not. Many women acquired an economic independence and social status unthinkable a hundred years earlier. Some countries have adopted constitutions or legislations banning discrimination on grounds of gender. But women are still treated as second class citizens all over the world. Till date women worldwide bear the double burden of domestic work and childcare. In addition if she is a working woman, she has to adjust to her work situation also. She earns less than men and is excluded from decision makings within the family.
