10 Rights of Indian Woman on International Women’s Day 2024

International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate women’s achievements and advance the fight for gender equality. In India, women enjoy many legal rights that provide them equality and protection.

In India every woman is given equal rights, there is no set of rights limited to women, but yes, due to their biological differences, there are some special rights also. The United Nations has prepared a draft of the rights to be given to women on International Women’s Day.
