"You can tell the condition of a Nation by looking at the status of its Women." -Jawaharlal Nehru

There is no denying the fact that our society continues to be a patriarchal society even though we have come a long way from the time when our daughters where even denied their basic rights. Our women may enjoy many opportunities like education, being able to have a career etc., they were previously denied but they continue to face many hurdles. When it comes to gender equality, our society still continues to look the other way. Even though many of us boast of treating our women respectfully and providing them with equal opportunities, the cases of domestic abuse still continue to increase every day. Though our women may enjoy the privilege of being able to provide for their families, they continue to face harassment and eve-teasing on a daily basis. As much as we may like to disagree, our society continues to deny many women their rights. Our girls still need to prove themselves at every point of their lives. They continue fighting as many social taboos and stigmas as women before them. How true is it and how many people agree that gender equality is still a mythical unicorn for our society? What steps need to be taken to eradicate it completely from our society? Team KO asks. Read on to find out what a few citizens have to say.
