The mass protest of the women garment worker in 1908 demanding improvement of their working condition had brought significant changes to the condition of women by demanding voting right and formation of “Women’s Trade Union League”.

The new face is that women are deprived with male dominating them. The culture of communal base disintegration that spread to the state of Manipur is the root of all form of kinds that is happening in the state.
