In India woman occupies a most important and key place in society. The Vedas glorified women as the mother, the creator and one who gives life and worshiped her as a Devi or Goddess. In fact Vedas gave utmost vital position to her. But it seems their glorification was more on papers rather than on reality. At the same time, in India women found her totally suppressed. Demoralized and subjugated to lots of humiliation in a patriarchal society. Indian women through the centuries remained subjugated and oppressed because society believed in clinging on to orthodox beliefs, male domination for the brunt of violence that is domestic as well as public, physical, emotional and mental. There is huge discrimination between men and women in the sphere of education and the reason attributed to such gender bias is the feelings of people that girls should be confined to the house. It has been seen that when the society imposes sanctions against the perpetrators of violence. The women are empowered to exert for their rights only when the family and the society are democratized, more civilized the status of the women will be strengthened. At this time, it becomes the duty of the state to facilitate and strengthen the whole process of empowerment of women.
