Women, Empowerment and Panchayati Raj

S. Nagendra Ambedkar (Author) Shilaja Nagendra (Author)
Synopsis The empowerment of Rural Women is crucial for the development of Rural Bharat. Women’s equal participation in decision making is not only a demand for simple justice or democracy but can also be seen as a necessary condition for women’s interests to be taken into account. Without the active participation of women and the incorporation of women perspective at all levels of decision making the goals of equality, development and peace can not be achieved. Despite the wide spread movement towards democratization in most countries women are largely under represented at most levels of government, especially in ministerial and other executive bodies, and have made little progress in attaining political power in legislative bodies or in achieving the target of 30 percent women in positions at decision making levels. The book tries to analyze the perceptions and orientations of the women leaders manning the decentralized democracies on various issues pertaining to the new Panchayati Raj system in rural India. The book will be useful for the policy makers, administrators, scholars and students of political science, public administration, sociology, women studies and rural development and all those connected with the Panchayati Raj system in the country.
