He also added that if the women from all walks of life are taken into confidence, they may play a significant role in the social reforms. They have played very massive and active role to eradicate the social abuses. He insisted that every married woman must participate in her husband's activities as a friend. But she must show the courage to deny the life of slaves. He was completely aware of the natural and inner strength of women. Babasaheb insisted on the education of girls and women. He strongly believed that if a boy gets education, he is the only person to get educated in a family. Perhaps, if a girl child is educated in a family, the whole family is benefitted. Women were struggling hard more than men of the backward classes. Babasaheb found the only weapon to fight against all sorts of abuses in society which was educating women along with men. He made an announcement, Learn get together and Fight. Women have the great duty of inspiring men . He believed that every successful person has a woman behind him. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar exclaimed, .I strongly believes in the movements run by women. If they are truly taken into confidence, they may change the present picture of society which is very miserable.
