This is a book about understanding women’s empowerment and pathways as well as roadblocks to women’s economic empowerment in rural India, as understood through an evaluation-based research of a state-funded social sector programme located in the education department – Mahila Samakhya (MS) – in Bihar, one of the socially and educationally most underdeveloped Indian states. The book presents findings of the three-year research that adopted a mixed-methods approach and evaluated the impact of MS on various facets of empowerment of women coming from the most marginalized communities. The study, therefore, tries to go beyond evaluating the MS programme and uses the research findings and insights to raise certain critical issues pertaining to social policy planning and implementation, especially in the context of women’s education and empowerment.

It examines wide-ranging issues that require immediate attention such as those related to disability, violence, torture, education, LGBT, neoliberalism, and social justice. The essays presented here explore the discourse surrounding human rights, and engage with aspects linked to the functioning of democracy, security and strategic matters, and terrorism, especially post 9/11.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Economics - Case Scenarios, Aligarh Muslim University (Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India), course: Economics, language: English, abstract: International efforts to address gender inequality have largely emphasized education as a means of achieving women’s empowerment. Education serves as the conduit by which women, long rooted in the private sphere, move into the public sphere and assert themselves on an equal basis with men. As a springboard to employment and economic independence, advocates say, education provides the critical foundation from which further empowerment flows. It is in this backdrop that the present paper tries to find the relationship between inequality in education and women empowerment. The entire paper is divided into three parts. The first part is introductory that talks about the second and third goal of MDGs which is achieving universal primary education and promote gender equality and empower women respectively with certain indicators to achieve these goals. This part also gives a brief account of the gender inequality in education and employment world wide. In the second portion, the importance of education in general and women education in particular has been highlighted. It talks about the gender inequality in literacy in India. A comparative analysis between different states of the country is being made with regard to the parameters like education dimension index and the same index if adjusted for inequality. Further, the parameters like inequality adjusted HDI, education and income index have been taken for few countries to make a comparative analysis. To find the impact of inequality in education on various other parameters, a correlation matrix has been calculated. To know the level of women empowerment in various parts of the world, the variables like female share in national parliament, percentage of female literacy and female labour force participation rate has been taken. The third and final part is given to concluding observations.

In India, policies and programs at different levels of the government cover various dimensions and strategies in gender development. Over the years, efforts have been made to empower women socially, economically, and politically. However, due to a lack of synergy and coordination, the achievements are not satisfactory. It is imperative that an integrated policy and strategy be formulated to address the economic, social, and political issues related to women, along with the requisite programs and schemes. Though India has created protective legislations for women, the enactments have not been easy to implement. The vastness of the country, the scattered nature of women workers, their lack of education and legal literacy, and the indifferent attitude of government bureaucracy have all contributed to the continuing vulnerability of women. This is true not only for unorganized rural women, but also for urban women workers. Although the constitutional commitments to women find reflections in the planning processes, legislation, policies, and programs of the central and state governments, the current socio-economic status of women is unsatisfactory in terms of almost all important indicators of human development. Women, Welfare and Empowerment in India contains research papers by social scientists and academics from different parts of India, focusing on specific gender-related issues. The collection provides valuable information for researchers, non-governmental orgainzations, and government agencies and functionaries. It contains 42 contributions related to women issues, categorized into the following six themed parts: Health, Nutrition, and Fertility of Women â?¢ Education and Training of Women â?¢ Employment of Women â?¢ Self-help Groups and Empowerment of Women â?¢ Problems of Rural Women â?¢ Women, Media, Politics, and Human Rights.

This book is written with the intention to underline the fact that India - a country that is more commonly referred to as the "country of youth" - the challenges that it has in hand and the ways in which we can combat these challenges. Social media has emerged as a platform where young Indians have taken to, express their views on political issues and social issues. It has gradually become a place of many discussions, where views and counterviews are presented and what this makes for – is a much more aware and willing “young India”. The very first step towards solving any problem is, realizing there is one – and the “young India” has taken that very step. Through this book, I look to bring about some perspective as to where we could possibly be going wrong and subsequently, where we could possibly put our young bright Indian minds into a much effective use. If we can have young minds from India making inroads in the IT and technology sector then why not in the political arena? If Italy can have a prime minister aged just 39, then why can't India have a system similar, where the young Indians could climb up the ladder of success in politics and still be under 40? The average age of an Indian politician is 65 years however the average age of an Indian is 24 years, there’s a contradiction between the two and if the perfect mix of experience and youth could merge into one and run the politics of India –the future then definitely beholds a much more ideal India, the very India that our forefathers dreamt of. The young India is seeking a change and a change is a due process which takes time but it’s the initiatives from individuals that matter. The dream of our forefathers to have an India that is "perfect" hasn't as of yet been accomplished. From corruption to cleanliness, we've got array of issues at hand which must be sought to make the dream of a "perfect" India come true. The young Indians are willing for a change to take place and this book highlights some very such moments from the decade gone by, where the young Indians have come forward and stood for what's right. Further, this book also examines as to how this "young India" has all the potentials to be the "best.generation.ever".

Women's Journey to Empowerment in the 21st Century offers a global view into the patriarchal attitudes that shape cultural practices that oppress women and continue to take form in the modern era. In closely examining a range of issues--from the college campus rape epidemic in the United States to the climate change effects in Ghana--this book compels readers to utilize a contextual framework in order to take a closer look into contemporary violence and oppression against women in our world. Written through the lens of transnational feminism, it examines the intersections of nationhood, race, gender, sexuality, and economics within the context of a world shaped by globalization and colonialism, causing the redefinition of borders and the realignment of migration patterns. A transnational feminist perspective also supports a definition of global sisterhood based on equity, understanding, and mutual experiences. Students focusing on social justice, social work, women's studies, feminist theory, and/or violence against women will find the book to be an invaluable resource.

"The proposed edited book on Women Empowerment: Challenges and Strategies, deals with the problems associated with the women community suffering from marginalization and the ways to address their identity and human rights concerns. The status of women in every nation was deprived and never considered. They were considered as mere machines to fulfill mere different duties. During ancient ages, we can see the evolution of changing and taking new perspectives. The concept of female in Manusmriti and in Puranas of considering them as dependents and deities is contradictory. There are still places where women are still considered as deprived and are still under chains it is the duty of the privileged to empower the underprivileged.Women empowerment programs failed as they overlooked the structural factors that perpetuated oppression and exploitation. The fulfillment of practical needs such as food, health care, and education cannot empower women unless the long-term strategic needs are met. The process of empowerment requires a transformation of structures of sub ordinance, control over material and intellectual resources, gaining decisions, making authority and reduction of gender inequality.The present book is the collection of Twenty-two research papers enlightens and thought-provoking articles contributed by research scholars throwing light on the women empowerment and role of religion and policies, women and nutrition, gender sensitization, role of education, status of working women in unorganized sector, role of media and NGO in promoting women empowerment, empowerment of Indian women –a challenge of 21st century, life skills and older women with reference to old age homes, depiction of women in literature and Marginalization of Women Characters in literature, social organization and woman empowerment and entrepreneurshipThe book will be an important reference source for scholars in the fields of rights of the marginalized sections, rights of the women, the role of education & practice and gender studies. The purpose of this edited book is to provide a common platform for academicians and policymakers for a comprehensive deliberation on issues relating to social sector development in our society. The research papers and various articles covering so many themes of social awareness for education and social sector development are compiled in one place so that anyone can get easy access to their research.This book is edited basically for the students, teachers, researchers, and academics.

Since the emergence of civilization, man has been marching in search of knowledge and wisdom. Various research studies have been proposed through education so that humanity, brotherhood and harmony are wedded together. Education is central for making life meaningful and purposeful. Education in India is provided by the public sector as well as the private sector, with control and funding coming from three levels: central, state, and local.
