Empowerment of Women Economically and Politically Brahmaputra Valley, Assam

Jaya Biswas (Author)

The central theme of the book is to explore regarding women’s empowerment in the char (riverine) areas of Brahmaputra Valley of Assam highlighting their role in family, society and political process with special reference to Barpeta District.

The study of women’s empowerment in the char area has been taken into account the specifics of struggles, challenges and opportunities associated with living in such backward and inaccessible areas.

Muslim women in the char areas of Barpeta District of Assam are disadvantaged not because of religious conservatism but because they are poor, are women, and Muslim, and because they live in char areas that constitute their Life world as different from those of others which together aggravate the particular disadvantages of any one of the identities. Second Pardah-Polygamy Talaq as the unholy trinity that restrains the social status of Muslim women is partially true, but it is also important to consider Socio-Economic and Place to Place context and it has been explored in our study.

After conducting interviews and carrying out field survey we could experience a gloomy picture relating to the socio-economic, educational and political consciousness of the Muslim women in the char areas. The question of womenfolk in the char villages is not the question of socio-economic and political status rather the question of survival. Probably, the question of survival has compelled the womenfolk in our surveyed char areas to cast their votes heavily with great vigour and enthusiasm making the election a great festival.
