Concept of women priesthood in Hindu religion

Dr. Aaryaa Ashutosh Joshi

Introduction: Women Priesthood is a unique concept from especially Hindu religion and culture. From last many centuries, women were playing important role regarding priesthood. 
From Vedic period women are performing their role as priestess and guiding people for their religious activities. 
Problem Identification: In modern era, women are achieving different type of success in various fields. But still many people have hesitation in their mind regarding priesthood by women. Now a days in Maharashtra – especially in Pune -a cultural and educational capital of Maharashtra, women are performing their job as priestess also. They are achieving excellent experiences from their work. People are happily accepting their homely approach and also appreciating their efforts. But still in rest of Maharashtra, only few people have this idea about the concept of women priesthood. 
Through this paper, I want to preach this idea and try to develop awareness about the same with my research.
