Status of Women is a pretty worn-out theme. Much has been written and much has been spoken on the subject and yet one has to go on harping on the same theme for a simple reason that the woman has not attained her full status and its necessary to remind her of it so that she may continue her efforts till the goal is reached. The term 'status' signifies the sum total of the various culturally ascribed roles one has to play and the rights and duties inherent in a social position. Besides the ascribed status, there is also the 'achieved status' which results from one's efforts and personal achievements. The concept of status is used to indicate the ordering of individuals in terms of attributes such as, level of education. Occupation, income, perception of one's status within the home and in the community, decision-making role, number of restrictions imposed on one's activities, freedom and son on.
