Q.13:- Though the law gives women equal status in India, many people hold unscientific views on a woman’s innate nature, capacity and intelligence, and in practice give them a secondary status and role. Demolish this view using scientific arguments, and by quoting examples of great women in science and other spheres; and persuade yourself and others that, given equal opportunity, women are on par with men.

When given equal opportunities, mental development of females will be as rapid as that of males. Madam Marie Curie won the Noble prize twice in science which is a rare gesture. Mrs. Indira Gandhi and Mrs. Margret Thatcher have flourished excellently well in politics.
