Abstract
Woman is a very strong character than a man as she not only take care of herself but whole family as a mother, wife, daughter-in-law, granddaughter, sister, sister-in-law, daughter, mother-in-law, grandmother, etc. Earlier women in India were facing many problems. New and modern day challenges and tribulations have cropped up making life uneasy for women. Issues facing women still consume the attention of researchers in social sciences, governments, planning groups, social workers and reformers. Society lays down the patterns of life for a woman much before she takes birth by conceiving fixed identities for her. It confines her existence through binary divisions between the general conception of men and women defining her as feminine as opposite to the masculine, the characteristics marked in the formation of gender by society. The private sphere assigned to woman in the patriarchal system limits her role as daughter, sister, wife and mother and also facilitates the control of her body by the opposite sex. In this paper, I have to discuss about the women on one side are celebrated as mothers and on one side are harassed in the form of an object. Women are the best creation of god but here the reality is something different.
