The outcome of various constitutional measures, initiatives undertaken under the various plans and legal measures and social legislation adopted for the upliftment of women's status and achieving overall equality among men and women, has been that the participation of women in availing different level of educational system, in different categories of occupations in both public as well as private sectors, social cultural and political activities, various development programmes and welfare activities, and availing certain amenities of life has been consistently increasing. But, in real terms, the women are still lagging far behind men in availing different facilities and participating in different activities due to widespread developed traditional form of social evils and cultural backwardness and are limiting the scope of women to participate in different activities according to their choice, even in the affairs and decision-making processes on certain matters of own family and the freedom to move for participating outdoor socio-economic activities which can provide them an opportunity of bringing improvements in their status.
