Women Emancipation: Focus North East India

Asok Kumar Ray (Editor) Basudeb Dutta Ray (Editor)

This book raises the conceptual issues of women emancipation vis-a-vis women empowerment focusing on the women of the northeast India.  There is epistemic difference between the two concepts and therefore a distinction is made between the two.  Empowerment in this book is however seen mainly as a trajectory for women's emancipation.  The approach of the book is empirical with a realistic conceptual base.  This book highlights the roles of the state, civil society, community based organizations and the women agencies towards the wider cause of emancipation of women in the northeastern region and reflects upon the different initiatives towards the goal of emancipation of the women of the northeast.  Some of the articles in this book give useful recommendations that might be of strategic significance for the emancipation of the poor and the disadvantaged women in northeast India.  This book is an important addition to the literature on women studies in this region and has great use value to the academic community, social activists, women agencies, policy makers and to development administrators.
