Women are the active agents of bringing change in the society. In India, women represent half of the population. Terms like empowerment of women, feminism have been used in order to provide them their basic rights, what is their right and also practicing their rights without connoting concurrently to the other genders. Gender deprivation is the violation of basic human rights of an individual irrespective of being a man or a woman. The impasse is created in several ways in our country be it in form of social restriction, stereotype thinking, patriarchal upbringing, misogynistic approach, women herself (considering her to be the second gender). The question arises that what are the factors that have contributed to depriving women of 21st century from realising their rights. Why do they still need to suffer in the name of gender at every place? Is a woman of 21st century a free thinking woman?
