After all those scuffle in Indian cabinet the bill for women empowerment have been given more positive side. Moreover even IPC 498a and domestic violence acts have made women more powerful in India. At times it is also said women are the real enemy for women. Moreover there are also comments that men are being treated as slaves of women. Men tend to respect women now with fear or may be waiting for a change to score. Still I hope the part that is more realistic is that all men have a mother and all women have a father. May be having peaceful relationship between these two genders are more needed. Moreover I hope give and take respect has a prominent role. Do you think are women still not getting respect and considerations?

indeed, in my opinion, issue of equal rights of women and men are no longer relevant to talk about because in practice, in modern times like now, have lots of examples and the fact that women are far superior than men ... in everyday life, we can also see that the man was able accept and exalt the rights of women, so if there is rule of law that affirmed the rights of women (again), I think it's too much

woman rights and religion is almost the same ... it is also like the skin colour too .. people almost all say that they indeed support this and that but the actual what they feel in their heart only one close to them knows for a woman to reach a high position somewhere, means she has to put in 200% efford than a man has too ... and yes she will then be considered successful for a woman in any high position, she is still required to be a housekeeper at home or otherwise, gives the husband a reason enough to support his request for divorce //

Harassment through words would give one a mental pain. Moreover abusive words I could see women using it in pubs, parties and quarrels.

Whatever is happenning in Indian Parliment is absolute politics and nothing more than that. But as far as in the real world, many men, yes many men have really learnt to respect women. Though still there are a few, who dont really treat or give the proper place for the women folk in their life, those many men really are example. Women also should by their deeds gain the respect they deserve.

May be real respect is not something that could be forcefully taken, still I at some cases women becomes enemy of women itself as in the case of men too.

Do you think they really respect women from inside their heart, or just for namesake or being afraid of their power.

Hello shamrack, I still think personally women are not being respected still with men overall. One women are not respecting themselves persoanlly either so that hinders the process overall for women. Since advent of the birth control pill and abortions women want what they want when they want it. I just men would put there foot down on these ladies but when you get the milk free (what is the point)... women need to do better for themselves and stronger role in taking home the pay check equall pay for the same work across all the sexes. I takes part in the home life how father treats there mother and daughters etc... to how they will relate to men in the world. Also if a female is raped I think it will forever alter there perspective of men for ever.. the trust issues etc. Thanks and have agreat day Sincerley Unique16

Its just the mentallity that has been built up across the society, its we who need to change it. For the better today, we have to teach ourselves on what is right, for the better tomorrow we need to treat our child/ren properly by teaching them the meaning of equality and value for life. Its just God had made Man and Woman different, does make sense to understand that a balance needs to be built. This should be done in such a way that humanity should not be compromised, where one takes advantage of the other.

May be if something unjustice is done to either side the law should give justice and the most important part is law should not be corrupted. But here in India Judiciary itself is corrupted. Moreover the law and rule at times do not show humanity. In this those innocent are punished that creates lots of mess in various issues. I feel a women who gets humanity or justice for her justifiable reason will be much satisfied and so is in the case of men too. I feel law and rule should be put in such a way that both genders do get justice as a mother treat her son and daugther if she love both.

ohhh that' so sad darling, we can never really tell what's in the mind of the gentlemen out there. LOL! You are not supposed to be rated as to wether your a woman or man it's should be the work you've done and how effecient and effective you're performance is in your job. As to house chores I believe it's the responsibility of you both. And it's a good thing you have a non verbal understanding and have been very considerate to each others lapses. That's what we really needed to have a harmonious and peaceful relationship.

Dear friend, That just reminded me of my mother who used do those works after office. But at present the situations had changed a lot. I do admit women are facing problems. But I hope there better ways to handle them. Moreover men too are also facing problems here in India was more false cases are increasing. If a women in office do not like her men in office or had quarrel whith a men staffshe could just complaint it just a verbal one. That would make a mess of that man. I do hope most men are now started to hate women and forming men right groups, which may arise futher problems to women I hope so.Moreover I feel that giving equall justice to both men and women could give better results.

If the women is respectable , then certainly men will respect her. Men will not respect her just because she is a women. As far as reservation for women is concerned in India, only those women need reservation and benefits who do not have any talent to be successful on their own. Giving reservation to women indicates that they are weak and cannot do anything without help. India is the only country which gives reservation and lots of benefits to women. It is high time that Indian women stop asking for reservation and other freebies if they really consider themselves equal to the men.

May be reservations should put on the basis of economic status and social development status for both men and women. Not on genders wise that may keep a disgrace to other gender.

we cann't evaluate women's social position by their achievement they get today .we have to admit such a fact that too many women give up their ambitious dreams just coz of they have a family to consider , in order to help her husband's success and the healthy growth of their childs ,there's too much sacrifices a woman have to make . so all men should show respect to women.

Yes, women do give sacrifices, as most men do bring earning for home. May be for smooth function of a family sacrifices and respect have a great roles.

I know that there are men out there that respect women but I have to say that there are still a lot of men that treat women like garbage or like a piece of meat. Some of them act like really nice guys but when they are around there friends man you should hear how perverted some of them are. I wish that men treated women nicer because I know that there are a lot of great women out there that have been cheated on or hurt by a man a did nothing to deserve it. I hope that men can learn to recognize that love will always overpower lust and that you should be able to see the beauty in someone and be able to not hurt them because you were overpowered by your urges.

Dear friend, Yes, there are men like that. Moreover I hope good and bad people are both in men and women. May this gender wise differential approach keeps men and women both more uncooperative.

hey! the very fact that so many people supported the women's quota bill shows that people who respect women too exixts :) whether by fear of losing something or selfish reasons, what ever be the reasons, they are respecting women and that's what matters. i think women are great and we simply rock!!! :) we give the males the oppurtunity to treat us little inferior just cause we ARE superior and if we act like them, they would be no where!! no offence guys! ;)

I could see men are supporting men and women are supporting women. Still there are few those here who give both sides considerations.

I don't really care about that. I respect anyone who respect me and who I want to respect, that's all there is to it. I don't really like to make consideration based on history. It feels better for me to act according my own heart and conscience.

I feel you are one among those who see women as someone equall to men in respecting. Moreover do feel that the other side too wait for our respect to give it back.

There are situations that said respect and considerations for women doesn't apply at all but most of the time people now a days are more aware of the co-existence and role of women in the society and give them due respect.

Recently I asked one of my friend whether he respects women other than her mother and sister. He just replied no. I asked him why. He just told that those women have become like "Hitlers" where men are forced to respect. May be not all women.

Hello shamrack, I can't say that all men respect all women...there are many men who doesn't adore towards women...I think the character of one or how it behave with others...decides whether she or he is deserving this thing or not..But i can say they have been getting more respect now... it is true said women are the real envy of women..as we seen in the lokh sabha..some of the women are against of it...I didn't know why they doing this thing..despite of knowing that they are also benefited from this...

I think that India is going through a very tough time where this is concerned. I do believe that women deserve to be respected and treated equally but at the same time, I realize that this is not the ways of all lands. I have been brought up with this but others have not. I too hope that women and men can live together in harmony and equality. I think that it will just take a little time for those that have not been accustomed to the idea of it to adjust.
