Women are of 2 types

1) Shakthi women
2) Maya women

Shakthi women are those who inspire others to realize god and do/be/see good.

Maya women are dangerous and god creates them to try to distract attention of geniune people and see whether they fall into their trap or not.

Example of Maya women: menaka who trapped viswamitra and current generation cinema heroines,prostitutes etc etc...

Below are swami vivekananda views about women in india and his suggestions.

1) In the tenth chapter comes a peculiar hymn — for the sage is a woman — and it is dedicated to the one God who is at the background of all these gods. All the previous hymns are spoken in the third person, as if someone were addressing the deities. But this hymn takes a departure: God [as the Devi] is speaking for herself. The pronoun used is "I". "I am the Empress of the Universe, the Fulfiller of all prayers." (Vide “Devi Sukta”, Rig-Veda 10.125)

2) In India the woman was the visible manifestation of God.

3) The girls of India would die if they, like American girls, were obliged to expose half their bodies to the vulgar gaze of young men.

4) Any attempt to modernise our women, if it tries to take our women away from that ideal of Sita, is immediately a failure, as we see every day.

5) There are some of our books which say that the next incarnation, and the last (we believe in ten), is to come in the form of a woman.

6) It is alone in the Sanskrit language that we find four words meaning husband and wife together. It is only in our marriage that they [both] promise, "What has been my heart now may be thine". It is there that we see that the husband is made to look at the Pole-star, touching the hand of his wife and saying, "As the Pole-star is fixed in the heavens, so may I be fixed in my affection to thee". And the wife does the same.

7) There is that beautiful story of the great sage Yâjnavalkya, the one who visited the kingdom of the great king Janaka. And there in that assembly of the learned, people came to ask him questions. One man asked him, "How am I to perform this sacrifice?" Another asked him, "How am I to perform the other sacrifice?" And after he had answered them, there arose a woman who said, "These are childish questions. Now, have a care: I take these two arrows, my two questions. Answer them if you can, and we will then call you a sage. The first is: What is the soul? The second is: What is God?" ( Brihadâranyaka Upanishad 3.8.1.-12.)

Thus arose in India the great questions about the soul and God, and these came from the mouth of a woman. The sage had to pass an examination before her, and he passed well.

Ramu garu,
Just now I have gone through net edition of The New Indian Express in which the statement of Ravishankar ji of Art of living was published.He bitterly criticised the nude paintings of Hindu goddesses by Hussain and he expressed surprise at the hue and cry of people for his Qatar citizenship.He has given an example of nude paintings of Hussain.Hussain had painted the nude picture of Hitler long back and Hussain said that he had painted Hitler in nude just to humiliate him.
Let us hope the pro Hussain people will realise the mindset of Hussain on his nude paintings of Hindu goddesses.On the ocassion of international woman's day Ravi shankar ji has come out against the insult of Women goddesses of Hindus by Hussain
