Girls are usually seen as soft, gentle and lacking in physical strength while boys are taken to be adventurous, tough and capable of any physical work. The children are prepared from their childhood itself about the roles they would be undertaking as adult men and women. This feature however gives way for gender discrimination.
We say that home is usually associated with women which the outside world is associated with men. If a woman is working, then managing both the house and office work doubles the burden. The common perception of society is that housework and taking care is less time consuming and is a natural and obvious responsibility of a woman.
In rural areas the women undertake even the heavy physical work like fetching water and working in the fields, but their labor is never noticed. In case of the domestic helps also, no respect and dignity is given to them in spite of them doing the entire household.
In order to address the gender discrimination, the Indian constitution provides equality to every individual irrespective of his or her gender. For instance, hild care centers or Anganwadi has been set up in many villages to help young girls attend school than baby-sitting. It is made mandatory by the government that organizations that employ more than 30 women to provide crèche facilities.
