Description: "The cases show that the Judiciary has not been consistent in upholding the fundamental right of equality of the sexes or the right to equal opportunity but on the whole in most cases when approached it has tried to uphold the right of the woman in this field. But how many women faced with similar situations are bale to seek redress from the Court? Constant vigilance is therefore required and the right of the aggrieved person to approach concerned organisations should be recognised and the organisations given locus standi to bring the complaint. Otherwise the Constitutional right given to the women and which had been hailed by many will remain only on paper."
