The Multi-disciplinary and comprehensive collection of articles presented in this volume provides a valuable discussion on the status and role of the women in development of the society. Till recently, women were treated on a different pedestal, depriving them of their rights but reminding them of their duties. But with the changing times, the role of women has changed from child bearing and rearing to bread earner. This book brings under one cover the role of women in the changing society and their changing roles under the broad categories of Health, Education, Employment, Politics, Popular Movements and Development.
