Empowerment of Women and Ecological Development

A. Ranga Reddy (Editor)
Synopsis The present volume consists of selected papers presented at the Seminar on 'Empowerment of Women and Ecological Development. This volume will be useful to researchers, Activists and Policy-makers. Empowerment is simply the ability of direct and control one's life. The objective of women empowerment will be to create an environment, where women can freely exercise their rights both within and outside the home as equal partners along with men. Educationally, Women constitute one of the most deprived and long neglected segment of the society. The deprivation gets acute with their poverty and socio-economic backwardness. Efforts will be target oriented in fulfilling the goal of Educating women and ensuring 'Equality'. Eco-feminism envisages concern of the women for the Environment and their direct involvement in the environment protection. Women are more prone to fall victim to environmental degradation. Ecological improvement hinges and availability of drinking water and cooking fuel for which enormous women labour is spent without any return. Women welfare schemes such as Self Help Groups empower women to become economically independent and sound. This will enable them to have greater access to healthcare Services and improve their physical well being. Women should be encouraged to contribute not only to home affairs but also to socio-economic, political, cultural and ecological growth of Society.
