Title of the Book: Women in Contemporary India: Issues and Challenges

Women constitute about half of the world’s total population, but still equality of women is not fully recognized. Their position and status have been inferior to male members of the society. India is a region of striking socio-economic and cultural diversity with wide variations.

Within the Indian subcontinent, there have been infinite variations of the status of women, differing according to the cultural milieu, family structures, caste, class, property right etc. we have to specify as to whether we are talking about rural women or urban women, about middle class or lower class women, about Brahmin or scheduled caste woman, about women in the Hindu society or in the Muslim community.

Due to the development of patriarchal society women have become a weaker section, her functions have been neglected to more procreation and attending to household chores. She has become a target of social and economic exploitation. ‘Invisible hand’, ‘Should women count?’, ‘Subordinated half’, ‘Neither sustenance nor sustainability’, ‘Half hidden world’, ‘From field to cooking pot’, ‘Second sex’ etc. all these peculiar phases are often used to reflect the lack of equality and human right to women and the freedom to make decisions which affects their lives and results in widening disparities in human capabilities and functioning associated between men and women.

The position of women in modern India has changed considerably. Her position in modern Indian society is equal to that of men, socially, economically, educationally, politically & legally. Her sufferings from Sati, Child marriage, Institution of Temple prostitution no longer exist. Still a no. of issues and aspects need consideration. The problems and issues require special attention.
