It is observed through Vedic literature that one time in India – in the ancient Vedic period women enjoyed equal rights. In fact, they were placed above men. Vedas have given evidences that Vedic women weren’t helpless, powerless, timid, weak or poor. It is said that when men became helpless (Vedic age) then women in the form of Durga, Chinnamastika, Bhavani, Dhrumawati, Kali, Jagdamba etc. gave a new rise to the world. Vedic Aged women were very capable and were given all due respects. From Adishakti to Sati Anusuiya, Savitri, Bihula, Gargi, Maitrayi etc. like many women powers blessed the human kind with all their ability, Capability, wisdom strength. Even in that time Gargi and Maitrayi contributed in creating social order for society. Sati Anusuiya created the unstoppable waves of Mandakini by her left feast attack on the earth. Because of their individual freedom Vedic Aged women had their social position as high as men, and this was all through equally at all levels.
