Indians learn the essential themes of social and cultural life within the bosom of the family. Women are legal citizens of the country but due to the lack of acceptance from the male dominant society there is a considerable deterioration in their status. Indian women suffered a lot as they were completely devoted inside the family, no share in parental property, lack in medical care, increased infant mortality rates and low priority to education which reduced their growth and deprived rights of equality with men. Women problems and challenges is world-wide phenomena in the developing countries. It is inevitable to create an environment where, women can make independent decisions. Education is the weapon to overcome these inequalities. To bring quick and effective change after independence, Indian Constitution ensured equality, dignity and protection from discrimination. In order to alter the attitude towards segregation of sexes, series of laws were enacted. Now women is encouraged to expose herself to outside business. The economic conditions demand participation of women with men in the production process. Free and Compulsory education, Freedom to hold high offices, Political rights to franchise and contest in elections, Spouses sharing a common social life in cities are the recent trends. These positive situations diminish the stereotyped mindset of the society. Hence there is a need for empowering women in health care, nutrition, legal aspects, family welfare, and self-employment in the present scenario. This book is prepared to give an overall view about ‘Women Life and Status’ since Kruta Yuga to Kali Yuga. To introduce the reader to the concept of women empowerment, I have tried to trace the historical development of women through the ages. The book is based upon the recent research outcomes and updated data and presented in a simple form without compromising the quality. The presentation style in this book I presume will be pleasing and very useful. The book include 12 chapters covering topics like Historical Development of Women in Indian Society, Legal Framework for Women Welfare, Protection for Women under Special Laws, Protection for Women at Workplace, Judicial Activism towards Women, Revolution towards women Education, Revolution towards women Health, Political Empowerment of Women, Social Empowerment of Women, Economic Empowerment of Women, Domestic Empowerment through Self Help Groups and Need for Women Empowerment.
