The problems of gender inequality and poverty are not thesame and have different causes and consequences. For example,a change in the price of a country’s staple food may be an issueof life and death for poor families, but it is unlikely to affectwomen (or men) in wealthier households. Equally, the existence of a ‘glass ceiling’ in senior management discriminatesagainst professional women but has little direct relevance tothe lives of the poor, men or women.

The sense of insecurity, humiliation and helplessness always keep a women mum. Our whole socialisation is such that for any unsuccessful marriage which results in such violence or divorce, it is always the woman, who is held responsible. Cultural beliefs and traditions that discriminate against women may be officially discredited but they continue to flourish at the grass root levels. Family relations in India are governed by personal laws. The four major religious communities are – Hindu, Muslim, Christian and Parsi each have their separate personal laws. They are governed by their respective personal laws in matters of marriage, divorce, succession, adoption, guardianship and maintenance. In the laws of all the communities, women have fewer rights than that of man in corresponding situations. It is really that women of the minority communities in India continue to have unequal legal rights and even the women of the majority community have yet to gain complete formal equality in all aspects of family life. This is basically the problem of gender inequality. But what is this problem and how this can be solved.
