Women in Modern India underwent a major and long-needed change in their lives due to the various reform activities undertaken for their upliftment. They were finally able to emerge from the submissive roles assigned to them by society and emerge as free and independent individuals with their own distinct identity. The change in their social role and function led to a greater participation of women in the public sphere and the gradual weakening of the bonds that tied her down to home and family alone.
Emergence of Womens Organisations in India was largely a result of the spread of education and the creation of the idea of the new woman. There was an increased level of communication among women which made them aware of the different problems that they faced and their rights and responsibilities in society. It was this increased awareness which led to the rise of womens organisations that fought for and represented womens causes.
