Do you think the fight for women’s right is still necessary in today’s day and age?

In the context of our country where there are vast cultural, ethical and socio-economical differences, how women are treated also varies greatly. In some cultures, a woman is the head of the Family while in others they are treated like a slave. Thus, the definition of ‘ Women’s Rights’ is not same for every culture or person. I would not use the term ‘Fight’ but rather ‘Educate’. Yes, it is important to make people aware of women’s rights. Also in some cases, women are equally responsible for violating women’s rights; it’s no wonder that the sasu-buhari melodrama is so popular in TV series.
