In the advent of International Women’s Day, which is being celebrated across the globe on March 8, the Co-ordination Committee (CorCom) has greeted the women community of the state to actively participate in the social and political development of the society.
In a release, the CorCom said that this year the day is on the theme- Pledge for parity. The celebration has made an impact on the economic, social, and political conditions of women.
Since 1970 various women activists have been fighting for the “liberation of women” as a movement. However, the domination of male over female and patriarchic social system failed the movement to achieve its goal. Due the unequal wages system for male and women; lack of representatives in legislatives bodies and business activities made the women an unproductive human resource around the world, observed CorCom.
In India, because of prevailing dowry system every year around 8000 married women were killed. In the last decade, around 1.5 lakh to 2.2 lakh married women were murdered in different states of the mainland India.
Since Manipur is also under the Indian Union, the women of the state are also facing undue problems and crimes against them. Many crimes were committed against the women community in Manipur.
There were no social movements without the active participation of women in the world. Nupilal of 1904 and 1939, where Manipuri women fought against the then British India, are the clear examples of women’s participation in social movement. However, the Indian political and social system is continuously exploiting the women and their rights.
On this day, CorCom, whished all the women to actively participate in the social, economic, political and legislative activities like the earlier period where women took the pivotal roles in social reformation.
