With all her rich cultural antiquity, diversity and heritage, India has also been a country that has suppressed her women. It is ironic to say the least, because Indians have always worshipped their country as a 'janani' or mother. On the one hand they worship this mother, and on the other they disregard their sisters, daughters, mothers, and wives.  Articles on these pages discuss issues concerning women.
