Women's Rights in India - Your Shot - National Geographic Magazine -- Kristian Bertel

Photograph by Kristian Bertel, Your Shot

In this photograph an Indian woman has been photographed in Mumbai, India. Women in India face myriad cultural challenges that impede social advancement. Discriminatory family codes, lack of education, and cultural stigmas are only a few examples. Heightened media attention given to such inequities has raised pressure on the government to not just reform the institutional treatment of women, but also raise the level of dialogue on the larger issue of women’s rights in a rapidly modernizing society.
