Watch: The Rights Of Women In India Vs. The Rest Of The World

India has achieved a lot in the 70 years since she got her independence way back in 1947. But where do we stand with it comes to the rights of women? How do we compare with the rest of the world? Have we progressed or regressed?

Not only does it have several laws in place to safeguard women, like its abortion laws, it has also had a significant number of female leaders throughout its history, while the US is yet to have its first female president.
