Religion and society are closely bound together in Indian entity. Among the widespread religions, Jainism has contributed some original ideologies to the world. Its most consequential aspect is that it has always respected the smallest of the insects among living organisms and this attitude extends even to the insentient world. It is a religion of phenomenal equality of all souls, termed Abvait in Shwetashwar Upnishad also, devoted to a recognising the rights of all leaving creatures. Therefore it is but natural for such a religion to cultivate an attitude of respect towards women. So not surprisingly, it accepts that women are equally important as men. Hence, this research paper mainly focuses on status of women in Jainism.
