The 3-way tug o’ war between Indian Women, Marriages & Education!

A long way to go...

While women emancipation is taking place continuously, there isn't enough awareness on how normal women (all classes of the society) suffer when it comes to sacrificing education & career for marriage (and family). Things are improving - there are government aids for girl children to prevent this, but government help isn't just enough. Parents need to alerted of the big threat that lack of such freedom for these women poses to society in the long run (this apathy happens specially with the the eldest daughter in the family).

Taiwan (applicable to other East Asian countries too) – “Early born children in large families do poorly, and particular poorly if they are female and can, hence, marry early.
