AbstractWomen are an intrinsic part of every society and the status of women in the society is directly related with social and cultural traditions, stages of economic development achieved, educational levels and political attainments for women in society (Chakbarty, 2012) Moreover either matriarchal or patriarchal society women play a decisive role. In countries like India where society and life of the people are carried by traditional and spiritual foundations in family a mother sacrifice her life for the future of the children.
Gender sensitivity is one of the most undeniable features of the decade. As Women comprise half the world’s population. They consider equal partner in the development process and their role in development cannot therefore be unattended. They are two perspectives that emerged in the contemporary discourse of gender equality: women’s development and women’s empowerment.
