Abstract: Since the beginning of the UN decade for Women, women activists and scholars have systematically brought to light the oppression, exploitation and marginalization of Indian women in all walks of life. The benchmark in this respect was the Status of Women in India report of 1974. The role played by economic, social, cultural and political institutions in reinforcing this subordination was highlighted in this report and is now better understood. The growing women's movement in the country increasingly brought pressure on the government and political parties to acknowledge the low status of women, and, more important, respond to women's concerns through a series of preventive and promotive programs and supportive legislation.
