Gender issues have been in existence from a long time. Of late the situation is quite horrible. Sexual assault, domestic violence and unconceivable crimes against women are on the rise!
Modernization, education and civilization seem to have very little impact on gender harassment. Women are not safe on the road, office, trains, autos, buses and sadly for some even at their own homes!
Surprisingly, the condition was not so negative in our own country. During the early Vedic period that is Rig Veda(2000 B.C. to 1000 B.C.), women enjoyed dignity, love, education, freedom and protection.
Unfortunately, in the later Vedic period the position of women declined. Not all practices during this era will be acceptable to our modern women; there may be jarring notes here and there. Nonetheless, imbibing the Vedic spirit of respecting women will be more progressive than regressive.
