Education and Women Empowerment

P. Adinarayana Reddy (Editor) M.C. Reddeppa Reddy (Editor)
Synopsis Women constitutes half of the total population in the world and they perform an estimated 60 per cent of the world's work but own only one percent of the world's land and earn just 10 percent of the world's income. Further, they are denied with the right to education, intellectual obscurantism in the patriarchal society. Even though they are contributing for the national development, their work is unrecognized and uncounted. As a result of this, they lagged behind in all spheres of life and suffering from chronic malnutrition, hygiene in the home and ignorance heightens their conditions. Recognizing their potentialities and to convert them as active human resources, the Government of India has formulated and implemented education and welfare programmes. Inspite of these efforts their position has not altered significantly. An attempt has been made in this volume to document the various strategies adapted for women sustainable education and their empowerment. There are 19 papers in this volume arranged in three sections viz., Education and women empowerment, Approaches for women empowerment, and organizations and women empowerment. This book has been designed to meet the requirements of students, general readers, policy makers and administrators.
