In the last decade or so the Empowerment of Women has been recognized as a central issue in determining the situational reality of their status. The Government of India has declared the years 2001 as Women’s Empowerment Year, and a lot has been and is being done at national and international levels. Yet a lurking question that still remains to be answered is that despite all the efforts and the apparent psycho-economic and socio-political progress that have taken place in women’s situations, abuse, discrimination, violence and crimes against women?

This book while attempting to answer this question is a unique collection of data covering comprehensively the analysis of the concept, multifarious facets and the obstacles that come in the way of women’s real empowerment, as also of the strategies to achieve it in reality. Edited by Dr. Promilla Kapur, a Consultant Sociologist and Social Researcher, this book contains articles by experts and scholars dedicated to the cause of Girl Child and Women’s Empowerment.

The book is a unique document for researchers, professionals, NGOs, activists and the Government, and can act as a catalyst for stimulating people’s campaign which is the need of the hour for empowering the women in reality.
