Abstract
Indian experience demonstrates that, in spite of 65 years of independent development, adoption of a number of laws aimed at the emancipation of women, in reality women are still one of the most vulnerable parts of society. Traditional submission about roles and identities of women in the family, in caste and in community promote gender inequality. Lately struggle between democratic community and traditionalists on the situation of women deteriorated sharply.
