As everyone knows, on the one hand, women in India walk shoulder to shoulder with men, whereas, on the other hand, this half of the population is struggling to get their due rights even after more than seven decades of India's independence.
The title of this book itself reflects its gravity and importance.
The wide range of issues related to women that this book covers makes it a must-read for women, students, research scholars, academicians, politicians, competitive examination aspirants and general readers who are keenly interested in augmenting their knowledge regarding various aspects of women in the largest democracy in the world where the women are still finding it difficult to get their share of representation even after the recently concluding the 17th General Elections in the independent nation.
The authors have done independent and detailed research on every aspect related to women starting from present social conditions of women to political representation, financial independence, women empowerment, challenges and opportunities in historically patriarchal society, role of women in governance, women's rights and problems being faced by both working and home-maker women.
By reading this book, the readers will come to know about issues that have been left unaddressed for decades, and will then get deep insight about the present condition of half the population of India.
This book will help the policy-makers and stakeholders to draw an action plan to ensure equality, social, legal and constitutional rights for women.
The authors are continuously researching to bring other unaddressed issues concerning women to our readers.
The Nova Publication promises that we will keep highlighting every latest development related to the rights, roles and representation of this 50% population of India in our subsequent publications until the time when 100% equality for women is achieved.
The best part of the book is that the authors have written the chapters in an extremely lucid language which is easy to understand and grasp.
