4 Modern Day Women Writers Who are the Flag-Bearers of The Term ‘Talented’
There were days when the female population of India was strictly meant to take care of the house and children and were not allowed to take education. Now the times are changing, even though there are a certain percentage of the Indian families which are still patriarchal but majority of the women out there are making a lot of progress.
