Q. WOMEN EDUCATION Q -the Indian government decided to rewrite textbooks in order to fix the portrayal of men and women in gender-stereotyped roles. A later study of Indian textbooks found that the problem still exists. In most lessons, men are the main characters. They hold positions of higher prestige and are shown as strong, adventurous and intelligent. Women, when included, were often depicted as helpless, often victims of some type of abuse. Such depictions are major obstacles to women's education.YOUR COMMENT PLEASE ?
