Creator Iqbal, Saba
 
Subject woman, woman rights, empowerment, Ambedkar, vision
 
Description Ambedkar’s life was a struggle for achieving human rights. He fought for the dignity of the deprived people and was also a great thinker of woman rights. Some other intellectuals before him had worked towards women empowerment but Ambedkar ensured that women rights were included in the constitution of India. Ambedkar perceived that women as the victims of the unjust and rigid social system. He attacked all major religions of India for subjugating their womenfolk. He asserted that women should be provided equal opportunities of growth. He initiated various movements for the upliftment of women. He suggested measures such as education, inter-caste marriage and inter-dine as methods of removing caste and class hierarchy. He provided various legal protections in constitution to ensure that women get their due credit in the Indian society. These constitutional securities have gone a long way in ensuring women rights in modern India. The contemporary social challenges demand an in-depth investigation of his vision, rationality of his outlook and the intrinsic humanity of his ideas for practical action
