Women in Military in India: The Cry for Parity


  • Arundhati Bhattacharyya Bhairab Ganguly College Kolkata-7000056, West Bengal


Gunnar Myrdal in his ?Asian Drama? argued that the traditional societies cannot modernize themselves, unless they
recast their traditional institutions, beliefs and values, to suit the demands of development. But, India has proved that it is not
necessarily true, particularly, in the restructuring of gender relations in the workplace. Women have proved their worth, not to the
exclusion of their male counterparts. But, Indian women have distinguished themselves by working shoulder to shoulder with
men. Yet, the women made their own mark and proved a cut above the rest in so many areas of performance. The Indian State
has also supported them. In the final document of the Vienna Conference, States formally recognized the human rights of
women to be an integral, inalienable and indivisible part of universal human rights. They further demanded that the equal status
of women and the human rights of women?be integrated into the mainstream of?.the United Nations human rights activities.
