What are the problems of the weaker section?
What are indicators of women's weaker section?

(1) Historical:- From ancient times in India, we have male-dominated culture. Where women have been given the second status. For example, in ancient Indian culture, there was the practice of sati system. Where women had to burn in fire. Still today there is a dowry & widow system in practice. In this way, women suffer from ancient times, and this is one of the indicators of women’s weaker Section.


(2) Economically:-In ancient times women were totally dependent on men, but today some women are earning but all women do not have the right to use their earnings. While doing their job they have to also look after their household work, take care of children, etc. this indicates how women are economically backward & harassed

(3) Social: - According to human rights, men & women are equal though women are not allowed to perform all the rituals. During the menstrual cycle, women are not allowed everywhere. In ancient times and still, today in our society feticide is taking place. In society, women are being harassed in many ways.


(4) Biological: - Women are biologically different from men so she has to bear the burden of motherhood. While this, if the women do not get proper hospitality during pregnancy the mortality rate increases in the population of women.


(5) Ideological: - As women think that they belong to the weaker section they do not communicate their problems to anyone. Women think that from ancient times they suffered and she thinks that this might be her destiny. And this narrow mindset doesn’t allow her development.

(6)Politically:- After getting 33 % reservation in local governance still, we are not finding that the women are getting benefits from it. For example, in some places, we find that the nameplate is of women but indirectly authority belongs to men.


(7) Educational:-From ancient times in India, women do not get a proper education. Still in some villages of India girls are made to work at home instead of going to school. Verbal & sexual harassment is the cause of dropping out of school of the girl child. Even lack of Sanitization is a cause for dropping school. We can see that In 2021 Male literacy rate is 82.14% and the Female Literacy rate is 65.46% according to the Census of India. This also indicates how women are weaker in the educational field.

Why is important to the empowerment of the weaker section of society?

 The progress and prosperity of any country can be by the socioeconomic positioning of its citizens mainly the deprived sections of the society which are the women, children, scheduled caste, tribal, and the disabled population who suffer from poverty, disease, unemployment, and much other social deprivation.

  Such sections of our society must be noticed by the state, policymakers, planners, social welfare administrators, social scientists, and academicians, so that legislations, policies, and programs are formatted in line with the constitution of our country. As a result, the country progresses as a whole, not just some sections doing well and others being left behind.
