From primitive times to the contemporary era, we can see that the status and role of women are changing periodically. In that context, there are lots of variations we can find in the gender identity and the human rights awareness. As a matter of fact, masculine power is consider superior in most societies and in that sense women are marginalized in various sector. Women become victims of discrimination from the family to the work place. Here articles and papers from different parts of India describes various views on different themes relating to gender in development. Gender in Development is of utmost importance today in the fields of research and academics. When we converse about Gender we focus on women and their overall development. Women are an important part of the functioning of any society. From family to group, group to region and region to country, women, like men, play important roles in various activities. Even so, women are found to be socio-economically discriminated everywhere. In that context, for the comprehensive development of women, it is a pre requisite to analyse the status and role of them through various aspects such as Education, Health, Politics, etc. Since social science is concerned with facts, it needs to reveal the facts behind the extent of gender development (past and present) in Indian society. The editors have also included human right concepts in the context of gender and development. The book will be of interest to academics, research scholars feminists, social researchers policy-makers and non-governmental organizations alike.
