by giving them equal chance to marry again ( if they wish or need i.e if widowhood came at very early age ) . by changing social mindset that 2nd time marriage is only men"s right .

Who will change the mindset of society? I mean Society is made of individuals and if an individual thinks that it is her/his right to marry again(widow) then who do stop her? If somebody stops her, sue them in court, start to reform the society. We have been studying that since 1AD there had been movements for uplifting the woment probably more than 2000 years and still the problems are persisting in the society because not much efforts have been from that section of society(women), how can a man take on the issue related to women which had been since ages, many have done like RR Mohan Roy, Jyotiba Phule but if the problem is not raised by the section itself then probably the problem will still 500 years more because the speed of reforms is very slow and everything is decided in courts, I mean where is the society, is this the society we are talking? Probably the society doesn't take this issue as a problem like Modi said, the mindset of society is SAB CHALTA HAI. Why is NCW not allowed to make binding recommendations in matters related to women? NCW should frame the charges in cases of Dowry, harrasments, rapes etc because there is huge need to sensitize the society matters pertaining to women. Thank you sister.

Women outnumber men Solutions [Feminisation of Widowhood] * subsequently died. r accounting for nearly 78% of total widowed population. Between 2001 and 2011,89.71 lakh- widowed persons were added. Several factors may explain the imbalanced gender ratio among the widowed. Natural Factors: Firstly, women experience greater longevity than men. The life expectancy in India has increased from 62.3 years for males and 63.9 years for females in 2001 2005 to 67.3 years and 69.6 years respectively in 2011-2015. Societal Factors: Secondly, wives are generally younger than their husbands, a fact that increases their probability of surviving their spouses even without the differences in longevity The widows. as per Census data, can be seen from the age-group perspective also. 0.45% of the total widows are the Child Widows in the age group of 10-19 years. lag . . e an . u nd . 9.0% are in the age group of20-39 years, oid 32% in the age group of40-59 years and 58% are above 60 years. arded


  7. to Widows in different age groups face specific challenges pertaining to loss of adolescence, access to employment, skill development, property rights, shelter, access to healthcare etc. Further, it is indeed a matter of concern that we still have 1.94 lakh child widows despite the Prohibition of Child Marriage Act, 2006 Along with the increasing number of widows, the attitude to widowhood is changing >The suppression of widow in the name of widowhood is gradually vanishing and widows are a th rc taking up jobs, attending functions and ceremonies and getting mainstreamed in the society. However there are pockets in the country where entering into widowhood still remains painful and humiliating to women than to a widower because of the discrimination, ritual sanctions of the society against widows [witch-hunting] lag e an .Widows in some areas still have limited freedom to marry, have insecure property rights, experience social restrictions on living arrangements, have restricted employment opportunities and also lack of social support. " .There is little understanding of the problems they face and the general schemes are not nd enough to cater to their problems and improve their condition. Further there is lack of data with regard to their economic conditions for the purpose of identification of the most vulnerable and marginalized groups among widows. While the census enumerates widows, credible analytical studies on status of widows are not available. oid


  8. want to he start The Government has been looking at the special position of widows and has initiated a number of interventions. Steps taken so far [1]Many state governments have formulated widow remarriage schemes. State a th governments have also formulated schemes for pensions to widows and for assistance to widows for the marriage of their daughters re [ii]Under MNREGA, special provisions have been made to identify widowed women who can then qualify as a household so that they are provided 100 days of work the death. lag [ii]The Union Ministry of Women and Child Development has been giving emphasis to the issues related to widows for the last two years >One major issue faced by the widow is that after the death of her husband, she has to run from pillar to post to get her entitlements which often get delayed shows as she is unable to prove that her husband has died Accordingly, the Ministry has undertaken a special drive with the state governments so as to ensure that the name of the widow is mandatorily mentioned in the death certificate ofa man. Keeping in view such circumstances, a new shelter home for widows is being established in Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh which will have facilities for 1000 widows.

  9. want to he start to [iv]The recently announced Draft National Policy for Women places special emphasis on widows a th as a special category who need assistance, care and protection. >The new policy wil also bring about convergence on the issues of widows with single women as these cannot be addressed in isolation without referring to the issues concerning the broad category of single women which includes widowed, divorced, separated or never married. . This will enable special attention to be given on the larger issue of vulnerability, both socio- he economic, physical and psychological which single women including widows have to face. However,there are certain challenges that require constant attention of the government. [1]Effective implementation of Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, lay e an 2007 can automatically ensure a safety net of family care for widows. [ii] Universal coverage of pension for widows can bring sustenance and respectability for widows.
