Gender studies

The question of engendering has emerged as a dominant theme in the development theory and practice in the past few years, mainly due to partial achievement of the desired goals of development in terms of attaining gender equality and women`s empowerment. Most studies in this regard focus largely on engendering the state institutions. But the context of development has changed in developing countries with the introduction of recent economic reforms. Taking note of the changed scenario, this book broadens the framework of analysis of engendering governance institutions by incorporating the institutions of market and civil society, besides the state, with a special focus on India. This book will prove valuable for university students, researchers, teachers, administrators and social activists engaged in women`s empowerment and other advocacy issues.
