Constitutional Guarantees: The Unequal Sex
AbstractLong before Independence, the theme on which Gandhiji wrote repeatedly, was the need to improve the status of Indian women. He drew attention to the fact that the woman was ‘not only.... condemned to domestic slavery but when she goes out as a labourer to earn wages though she works harder than man she is paid less”. He emphasised the fact that women should not suffer from any disability or discrimination and drew attention to the fact that “what we are doing to our women and what we are doing to our untouchables recoils upon our heads with force thousand times multiplied”.
