Civics

Read the following extract from a conduct book for married women, published in 1912. God has made the female species delicate and fragile both physically and emotionally, pitiably incapable of self-defence. They are destined thus by God to remain in male protection of father, husband and son all their lives. Women should, therefore, not despair, but feel obliged that they can dedicate themselves to the service of men. Do you think the values expressed in this para reflected the values underlying our constitution? Or does this go against the constitutional values?


SOLUTION
The values expressed in the above paragraph is in dissonance with the values expressed in our Constitution regarding gender discrimination. Article 39 (d) of the Directive  Principles of State Policy provides for 'equal pay for equal work' which underscores the value of gender equality in workplaces. Moreover, Articles 14 to 18 spell out the Fundamental Right of every citizen to equality. Pursuant to both the Directive Principles of State Policy and Fundamental Rights, the Government of India has initiated many schemes and laws to protect and empower women from discrimination.
