Man and Women should have equal rights

Man and Women should have equal rights.

• Introduction- Agree with the statement Ideology propounded by great revolutionaries like Voltaire, Karl Marx, and our own Mahatma Gandhi.
• Women play a complementary role in the life of men. Nature has gifted them special attributes for the human race to grow and prosper. They are the fulcrums around which the family revolves.
• Intellectually they are the same or even better than men. They are venturing into fields like aviation, defence, and even space. 
• Their well-acknowledged contribution in the field of education and healthcare As a teacher, doctor or nurse.
• They comprise fifty per cent of the human population, contributing the same percentage to the GDP. Realizing this the developed and developing countries have given them equal rights. Countries that have denied equal rights to them are backward both technically and socially.
 • Conclusion- Undoubtedly, men and women should have equal rights in all respects. This would enrich society, and help in the growth and development of the country. 

"Behind every successful man, there is a woman." All great men in their autobiographies have acknowledged this fact. Indeed it is inconceivable to deny them equal rights in society. After all, they are also human beings, endowed with the same mental, emotional and physical faculties possessed by men. This realization dawned on us after two centuries of revolutionary social and political struggle. 

Great revolutionaries like Voltaire, Karl Marx, and our own Mahatma Gandhi inspired the masses with their ideology of freedom, justice, and equality. Their ideology paved the way for a more equitable and socially benevolent political order, eventually leading to democracy. Under this political dispensation, equal right including the right to the adult franchise was guaranteed to all irrespective of sex, religion, caste or creed. 

Thus in this age of enlightenment to deny the equal right to women, it would be like adopting an ostrich-like approach, oblivious of the present realities and their contribution to society. Women today play a complementary and important role in the life of men. 

Nature has gifted them with special attributes so that the human race would continue to grow and prosper. Thus while men have been endowed with virile strength, women are endowed with humane sensibilities and emotions like love, compassion, and caring. 

These are extremely vital for the upbringing of the future generation, who are the hope of tomorrow. They are the fulcrums around which the family and our lives revolve. Thus as a wife, mother or sister they play an indispensable part in the life of men. 

Intellectually they have also time and again shown, that they are second to none. A cursory glance at the high school or secondary school results, confirm a higher pass out the percentage of girls than boys. 

They are thus blessed with the same or even better mental and intellectual power than men. Today find more and more women, working shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts. 

They are even venturing into new fields that were till recently considered to be the exclusive domain of males, like aviation, defence, and even space. Their contribution to the field of education and healthcare is a well-acknowledged fact. "The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world." Thus as a mother, she inculcates spiritual and moral 

values in the child. Outside home, she moulds the destiny of the children as a teacher, counsellor, and guide. As doctors, nurses or a social worker, she provides health care facilities to the community. 

Their contributions are indeed invaluable for the well-being, growth and economic development of society and the country. Quantitatively too they comprise about fifty per cent of the human population and also contribute the same percentage to the GDP of the country. 

Taking note of their invaluable contribution, the developed and developing countries have accorded women their rightful place in society, by giving them equal rights in all respects. 

Thus they not only have the right to vote, but also have the same right to property, education, and work, as enjoyed by men. This has resulted in their emancipation, and consequently a renaissance in the society, making it more progressive and modern. 

On the contrary, countries which have denied equal rights to them continue to be backward in all spheres, including technological and social.

We, therefore, find women in most Muslim countries suffering from oppressive customs like purdah and polygamy, with no right to vote or inheritance. Undoubtedly, men and women should have equal rights in all respects. 

The need of the hour is not to question this reality, but to devise ways and means to ameliorate their lot.

 We should provide them with proper educational and vocational facilities so that they can grow and develop to their optimum potential. This would enrich the society, and lead to greater growth and development of the country.
