Abstract: The main objective of this study is to find the role of Mass Media in modern society as it brings
radical changes and improve social situations especially in women. Mass media is a
communication whether it is written, spoken or broadcasted, it reaches a large audience. This
includes mainly television, radio, newspapers, magazines and internet. Electronic media is
undoubtedly replacing Print media due to tremendous technology up gradation and maximum
access and outreach. When it comes to media and women's rights it is every single one of us can
get involved and can amplify women's voices successfully and achieve equality. Educated
Muslim women in Bhopal utilise social media to mobilise public attention in order to enhance
the visibility of issues that often get lost in mainstream media. They also take part in
conversations on their rights, issues and raise voices to address the, may it be issues like forced
marriage, family violence, gender inequality, negative stereotype etc. Due to globalization of
media, now women can cover their problems and story by themselves, make it public and turn it
into media for consumption. No doubt media continue to have discriminatory attitudes towards
women and mostly rely on male worldview when portraying women. Here we study what are
possibilities in shape of social & traditional media that women particularly educated Muslim
women in Bhopal can publicize their perceptions freely by breaking this vicious circle to achieve
justice and equality in all walks of life.
