This is what intelligent women and men in our society today will not hesitate to admit. The number of educated women in our country in increasing with every passing year. Women are glorified for being the preserves of culture and of tradition. This very often means that women are more tradition bound and less progressive.

A young and pretty women can be an air-hostess and no one is surprised at seeing her travel to far corners of the earth. If women were given some opportunities like women, the progress the world would have been manifold.
