Abstract

Ideal women of India are appreciated based on her kulinisam and characters like fidelity, chastity, servitude towards her husband and his family, obeisance, non fickle mind behavior, honesty, purity and many more. These characteristics framed up by the society play a crucial role in conditioning women. Women are just coined as dump-head creatures by the male egotism and made use of many ideals with the help of folkways, epics, puranas and smrithis. The aim of the research paper is to provide an overview of the role of myths and mythology in degradation of women in India.
