Gender Equality and Sustainable Development
About the Book
Gender equality appears to be catch-phrases of the 21st century. Everybody talks about it. But, women are nowhere equal participants in public policy choices that affect their life. While sustainable development aims at eradicating poverty by creating greater opportunities for all, reducing inequalities, raising basic standards of living and fostering equitable social development and inclusion. Thus, gender equality becomes a key factor for achieving sustainable economic growth, social development and environmental sustainability. It is believed that women of northeast India are better off than their counterpart in Indian society. But, the ground reality is very much different from what it is being observed. Therefore, it is necessary to evaluate the problem of gender inequality in northeast India to help us know better the status of women in the society.
The volume has eighteen research papers dealing with various dimensions of Gender Equality and Sustainable Development with Special Reference to North East India which are full of policy insights. The contributors range from eminent teachers, scholars to practitioners in and outside the North East Region. The book will be found very useful to policy makers, women NGOs, Social scientists, practitioners of political and administrative system in and outside the county.
