The Paper attempts to throw light on the need to focus primarily on gender issues worldwide. The author argues that special privileges must be given to minority sections, including women, along with men. Further, this paper will put forward the idea that special privileges for women would bring them at par with men when it comes to application of laws. This research tries to re-evaluate that age-old question of equality of gender. The author states that developing countries would come to equal footing with the developed countries, if the other half could be utilized in an appropriate manner. This process would certainly entail improving the social factors, from which political and socio-economic factors will automatically fall in place. Globalization breaks through cultural barriers. However, there is a need, at the same time to recognize that laws are context based and thus recognition of the social contextual relationship has to be bore in mind, before being influenced by the international norms, otherwise one’s domestic culture would be foreshadowed.
