Rise of Feminism in India

Feminism in India started in 1830 and this struggle for feminism lasted for almost a hundred years till 1920. The first phase of feminism in India was from 1830 to 1920. For a century, a caste has been a demand by women for their political and economical rights, and especially their voting rights. In the 1960s, there was a revolt for equality of men and women, with more emphasis on the right to equal pay for equal work. There was also a revolution for the political and economic rights of women. In the 80s to 90s and beyond, women also fought for their identity under it.

The ideology of feminism is human ideology in a way that emphasized discrimination based on gender. Feminism has developed gradually.
Many men have raised their voices on the fairytale side of feminism. But a big and good effort for the interests of women has also been done in the century itself, today in the 21st century.

It is an ideology influenced by the ideology of liberalism, in this sense difference, a person can think independently before taking initiative. In this work, a woman is also a person and she should have such power, there is justice in the ideology. Women and men should be given equal status in the family. Keeping in mind the process of accumulated development in today's time, feminism also presents criticism. In this, the nature of such development, keeping women in the center, should also communicate food grains, financial assistance, medicines, and similar activities as necessary.

Today, emphasis has been placed on women's rights identity, moving beyond all social rights and economic rights. The world is being given more importance on cultural and commercial aspects instead of giving importance to economic and social aspects to women.
