The status of women in India has been subject to many changes over the span of recorded Indian history. Practices such as female infanticide, dowry, child marriage and the taboo on widow remarriage, which began in upper-caste Hindu society in Northern India, have had a long duration, proving difficult to root out, and in the instance of dowry have spread to all castes, classes, and even religions. Women in colonial India were no less progressive, aware and active in gender, political and socio-economic issues than the women today. Stri Dharma a woman edited journal exposed the problems of women to the world. The struggling of women in their life from birth to death was brought to light by Stri Dharma a Women's Journal.
