Earlier, the status of women in India was very traditional. Very few women enjoyed freedom to seek education or any kind of training.   A majority of them were viewed as second-class citizen as men were the sole breadwinners of the family.   All decision taking was in the hands of the husband.  
After independence, the role of the women changed due to industrialization.

Women today are no longer regarded as the inferior sex and enjoy more equality.
As a result of economic independence, there was a change in the structure of the family unit. We began to have more nuclear families. In such a step, the traditional role of women began to lose importance.   Both husband and wife have a role to play and start living on equal terms.

The Indian society is now proud of outstanding women achievers like Kalpana Chawla, Sania Mirza, Barkha Dutt, Shabana Azmi and many more. With the achievement of all this, women now have so many opportunities that were once a dream. Thus, the future of women in India looks bright and secure and their role even more important than just being a wife, mother, or daughter.
