Women from ancient times have administered a remarkable position in the society where they were given every right to attain intellectual standards. Women have been described holding equal status in the society, but with the passage of time women lost the equal status and formed a vulnerable part of the society. A large number of women are still victims of social evils and traditions which are ingrained in history. Since independence the government took over responsibility of protecting women and providing them better conditions of living. Many women specific laws are made, various laws conventions agreements are also made in order to protect and uplift the position of women in the society. Real empowerment and upliftment means a lot to bring something new rather than to implement properly what we have made. Reform or change in the position of women , emphasizing enforcement of the rights than demanding of a new right is the need of the present situation because all rights are just paper unless enforced
