ABOUT THE BOOK

Political participation of women has gained momentum in India as gender mainstreaming in political institutions has been supported by political activists. Political empowerment of women is gaining importance in the era of decentralized governance. Women areactively participating in decision making process and functioning of Panchayati Raj Institutions. The reservation for women in local governments has been increased upto 50 percent in many states in view of the growing importance of gender equality and women empowerment. Over the period, there has been increasing share of women in Panchayati Raj Institutions in various states. Political empowerment of women is imperative to ensure engendering development and gender equality in development planning . Women's participation in decision making process is essential for political empowerment. Panchayati Raj Institutions are playing critical role in political empowerment of women. These institutions are creating greater opportunities for women in decision making process at the gross root level.
