Now a days, many NGO’s have taken steps to protect human dignity and not just this they also have stepped forward to remove gender discrimination. Gender discrimination has dominated in so many societies today that it is getting difficult to overcome it. Talking about discrimination with women, we can see it happening in every corner of the world. It is also a bitter reality that they receive lesser food than boys do, do not get admitted to schools and in many countries they work more and receive lesser wage. Girls are deprived off from their basic rights even, in many societies they are denied of their right in property, nationality and are considered worthless. Girls are forced to get married at an early age or without their approval. They are deprived of their rights, liberty, education etc. All this is faced by almost everywhere in the world by women, only a little fraction of highly civilized countries don’t face such discrimination to an extreme end, though it is faced there too may it be at low level.
