Empowerment of Scheduled Caste Women: Through Self-Help Groups

S.P. Pandey (Author)
Synopsis Development alone cannot bring peace, prosperity and progress unless social justice and gender equality are ensured. It has been realized that development programs have bypassed women who constitute about half of the population of the country. The international conferences, conventions, and legal enactment highlighted the imperative need for the gender equality and women empowerment. The scheduled castes women, who are mainly agricultural labourers and are engaged in unorganized sector of economy, are still living below the poverty line and suffer due the to their overall backwardness. Social empowerment cannot bring gender equality and social justice unless economic empowerment is ensured. In order to overcome exploitation, poverty and making women self reliant, SHG's based micro finance has been considered as a instrument for overall economic empowerment of rural poor women. Against this background, present book purports to examine status of scheduled castes women and review their access to micro finance for socio-economic development. The book is divided in nine chapters, which mainly focus on development o scheduled castes women, micro credit, formation of SHG's, impact of micro finance and problem in micro financing in India. The book is useful for those who are interested in this field.
