In the later years, the people were taught that the means of living, earning, education, legal system were caste, creed and sex based and that they had divine sanction. But it was women that were the most oppressed. They were devoid of education and right to own property. Also, they were subjected to child marriage, widowhood, polyandry system, devdasies and even prostitution.
