The history books of a particular period help us to know about its real state. However, to analyse the times of a certain period that is beyond the annals of the chronicled history, we need to depend on the literature of that period. That is the reason why the role of the epic verse Rāmāyaṇa is huge in delineating the times that transcends history. Therefore, the question on the position of women in society in ancient times is also a salient topic of discussion.

As we conclude the study we can find that women enjoyed a better position in those times.
