In the Medieval Era
In the Medieval Era certain things that were allowed in the Vedic Era were not allowed in the Medieval Era.
There was a ban on remarriage
The Devadasis or temple women were sexually exploited.

Polygamy was widely practiced.
Discrimination was practiced against women.

Literature, and education.

This picture is of a woman in the Medieval Era.
Modern India is also known as after
independence.
The Modern days women were treated in the
following ways ;

Women in India now participate fully in areas such as education, sports, politics, media, art and culture, service sectors, science and technology.
The Constitution of India guarantees to all Indian women equality and no discrimination by the State.

Historical practices
Traditions such as jauhar and Purdah
among some communities have been banned
and are largely defunct in modern India.
However, some instances of these practices
are still found in remote parts of India.

Jauhar
Jauhar refers to the practice of voluntary
immolation by wives and daughters of
defeated warriors, in order to avoid capture
and consequent molestation by the enemy.
The practice was followed by the wives of
defeated Rajput rulers, who are known to
place a high
premium on honour. Evidently such practice
took place,
during the Islamic invasions of India.

Purdah
Purdah is the practice among some communities
of requiring women to cover their bodies so as to
conceal their skin and form. It imposes
restrictions on the mobility of women, curtails
their right to interact freely, and is a symbol of
the subordination of women.
It is noted that Indian women had to
purdah in the Islamic Kingdoms in Indian
Subcontinent, as result of fear, that they
would be kidnapped by the Muslims
invaders.

Women in India now participate fully in areas such as education, sports, politics, media, art and culture, service sectors, science and technology.
.The Constitution of India guarantees to all Indian women equality and no discrimination by the State.

Conclusion
It seems like the in the verdic period
women were treated with respect and
equality toward men. Then when the
Muslims invaded India women rights were
forgotten and many inhumane things were
done to women.
Now in the 20th to 21st century women
rights are being respected .
