Women are the main basis of society. I think, women are playing their key role significantly in every sphere of society. Actually, many institutions and organizations are there in our society. Women are involved in these institutions and performed their activities very well. Women are taking care of their family members as well as they are taking part in many areas such as politics, government offices, sports, professional training jobs, business, religious and cultural events etc.

Role of women has changed tremendously and is making its greatest impact in our society today. In ancient period, women are controlled by men. Gender based discrimination still the ugly face of society, such as domestic violence, sexual harassment in workplace or home, female infanticides, rape in public arenas etc. it’s a universal phenomenon. But there are some changes has been occurred now. UNICEF and many other country like India, have taken all appropriate safety measures for women. Now they are standing high and are playing a major role in many important areas like in sports, education, parliament house, media house etc. They are educating themselves and concerned with their improvements. Possibilities have opened in the era of globalization. In India, the socio-economic status of women is much higher than before. Today they are enjoying many more social and legal rights and have greater freedom.

Women can participate more freely in public affairs today. For example, many women are reading news as anchor, taking participate in international games and employed in various fields, ranked better than male in educational fields. Women are holding very prestigious position in every sphere of society.
