The role of women in India is changing rapidly. ‘Breaking Barriers’ shows different examples of women who chose to work and develop their professional skills, and in the process changed their role in society. In Bangalore, Arti works as a mechanic and Raj owns an industrial tool factory. In Rajasthan, where water is in short supply, the government along with NGOs have trained women to build and maintain handpumps. The film shows how working women can lead an independent life and break gender stereotypes.
There is no denying the fact that what a man can do, women cannot lag behind in performing the same functions, and rather they will complete those in a very delicate and perfect manner giving very little chance for the commission of an error. But if we put the women to hard task, this I think, will not be just if not cruelty on the part of men , for the men cannot do everything which the women can do. Women shed blood every month due to the natural phenomenon, bow to the wishes of their husbands, bear their children and carry them till delivery, feeds the children, do home work of school going children, cook food for the family, do other unending work at home and in the fields. Apart from this their husbands are very keen that their wives’ hands and body should be kept soft, glow on the face, should look always cheerful, etc. Women never get time to stand and stare. I have seen on the road side where the job of road repair etc. is going on that the men are either resting or smoking aside and the women are working vigorously with shovels, spades, baskets etc.. Is there any dearth of men because of which the women are put to work hardly in their place? I feel pity on her. She is a beautiful creation of God without whom there will be complete extinction of human life. The woman is a divine and a true delicacy which should be handled and treated in a delicate manner. In emergency it is alright if the women are working but treating them as slave is really a sin. A country which respects the woman in a right perspective, that country will flourish overwhelmingly and pave a way for the heaven. Respect the dignity of the Woman.
