Man and women are the part and parcel of our society. They complement each other. One is not a complete human being without the other. Our society being mostly the male dominated one, the social status of women has undergone many changes, starting from the taking the responsibility, taking care of the children and the complete family maintaining the house hold works. Educated women are shouldering various responsibilities like managers, musicians, sports persons, officers, news reporters, etc. Modern education system has brought about a big change in this system. Instead of a housewife, the women are now better known as homemaker. Women are now not restricted to the four walls of the conventional households now-a-days. They came out of the house and made home in the outside world of professionalism, starting from the day labourer to the fighter pilot of Indian defence services even. They are now in the politics, education, mass media, arts and crafts, finance, science and technology and even in software companies. Moreover, women’s formal and informal work sector can transform a community from a relatively autonomous society to a participant in the national economy. Therefore, empowering women is very essential, not only for their well-being but also for their families, communities and nation as a whole. In this volume we have tried to discuss almost all the issues related to the “Women Empowerment and Emancipation”.
