Description

There is a great upsurge in awareness about women’s rights among all sections of society. The developmental programmes and policies give emphasis to improving women’s social status. In spite of urbanization and industrialization our culture and economy are predominantly agrarian, rural based. So empowering women, who are the backbone of our agrarian economy, is a sure path to achieve major economic gains. Our development efforts have yielded creditable benefits for women in doubling their life expectancy over the lat fifty years, and considerably reducing female infant mortality and child mortality rates. Women have a crucial role to play in the modern society.

This book has been designed to meet a long-felt need and locate the enormous variety of women images, identify the ideological inspiration as well as under pinnings behind these images and comprehend the manners and processes through which these images affects, shape and even determine the reality of women’s status in society.
