How many centuries do we need to change these so called 'traditions'?

Some cases due to some genuine reason and in some mere superstition or male domination keep the females away. E.g. Shabarilmala temple was situated in the midst of dense forest once full of wild animals.So it was difficult for the men to ensure the safety of females at that time from beasts and beastly two-legged beings.So ban was imposed on the pretext of temple custom because some females to express bravery would set forth as an adventure.Now the time has changed but for centuries together the belief had taken deep root.Without a mutiny it is impossible to lift the ban within one night.After sufficient awareness measures the govt. can step forward,till then let it remain there and let not the tranquility be disturbed. Ty for the info.

It requires a public protest at the least to change the system. Many oppose age old practices. They fail to garner enough support for their cause.
