This present book not only aims at highlighting existing inequalities between men and women, vulnerability of women and girls but also their efforts to overcome these challenges. It makes an attempt to explore their systematically denied access to rights, opportunities and resources that are normally and easily available to other members of a group, and which are fundamental to social, political integration and observance of human rights withing that particular group such as housing, employment, healthcare, civic engagement and democratic participation. Ths authors through their in-depth discussions and writings have tried to sketch Equal World as imagined by John Stuart Mill in the opening lines of The Subjugation of Women; “The principle that regulates the existing social relations between the two sexes – the legal subordination of one sex to the other – is wrong itself, and is now one of the chief obstacles to human improvement; and it ought ot be replaced by a principle of perfect equality that doesn’t allow any power or privilege on one side or disability on the other.”
