Women in Panchayati Raj Institutions

Ashok Kumar Jha (Editor)
Synopsis Despite reservation for women, effective participation in Panchayati Raj Institutions have failed due to misuse and manipulation by local power brokers. Ignorance of women about their rights and procedures and about their potential and responsibilities have kept them far behind men in the local bodies. It is very much doubtful that mere increase in number of reserved seats for women in local bodies is likely to increase participation of women. Unless structural changes are brought about and a sincere effort is made to educate women and the power structures existing in rural areas are neutralised, nothing much can be achieved. All these issues have been discussed in this book and hence, it is hoped that it will be of much use of all those reading with PRI in our country.
