Human rights are vital part of human being .both male and female exist in it but our social system makes differences between them. So a big fight takes place for human dignity. Due to the discrimination women have to aware to avail their human rights. Women's rights are entitlements and freedoms claimed for women and girls of all ages in many societies. I believe India is a highly advanced civilization in a state of decay, caught in a series of paradoxes. The Indian woman is the victim of doubled prejudice: that of her gender. In one hand she is treated as a goddess and in other hand she has to face harassment in various stages of her life. It is in this context of social realities that the barriers facing Indian women need to be analyzed. Now the all scenario is going to change, in modern India, women have adorned high offices in India including that of the President, Prime minister, Speaker of the Lok Sabha and Leader of the Opposition. As of 2011, the President of India, the Speaker of the Lok Sabha and the Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha are all women. Women in India now participate in all activities so the status of women’s human rights in India has been subject to many great changes over the past few years. This study will provides a detailed overview of topic, including how the prohibition of discrimination works at the root level, explains from a human rights perspective how to challenge key issues facing women today. These issues are framed by globalization, the understanding of which requires the use of complexity theory, and 'human rights' which has become the most important framing of contemporary projects for of women's human rights and global justice.
