Understanding gender in the Indian context has always been a daunting task, largely due to the complex social structure characterized by myriad combinations of tradition and modernity. This present volume maps the various issues and challenges confronting the universal task of gender parity. Strategies to empower women - such as political rights and movements, economic freedom, and identity assertion - seem to be falling short of achievement of the desired goal. Divided into three sections, various contributions take cognizance of the diversity of women's issues and their concerns. The process of women's empowerment in India is based on empirical research carried out during the last three decades. [Subject: India Studies, Sociology, Women's Studies, Gender Studies]
