In India, women enjoyed a respectable position in the society until the later-Vedic period, when it started facing a decline and reached its lowest position during the colonial rule. Efforts were made by some wise Indians in women education and empowerment. However, given the circumstances, the results were modest. However, it was a start nevertheless, and women have come a long way in regaining the respect and position that they deserve. From commanding the highest positions in gold collar jobs to new breakthroughs on a daily basis, women are making their presence felt like never before.
To continue this momentum, PNE Society has undertaken several initiatives like gender sensitivity programs, self-defence workshops, advocacy for policy changes and campaigns for behavioural change.
