    About the Book :

    This book seeks to explain gender inequality, education and health in Indian perspective. Since, education and health are two powerful weapons to empower women’s development. Development that ignores women is neither desirable nor sustainable. Therefore, the planners and policy-makers must realise that development goals will only be reached by securing the active involvement of women at par the men and by bringing women in the mainstream of economic development, so that each gender plays its own role in the process and for this education and health, both are needed for the better health of the Nation.

    Thus, gender equality has become now conundrum because equality means the parallel status of women in socio-economic conditions. Many ideas have come forward regarding equaling but this book totally presents a panorama of equality in education and health. These are the root of equality as education paves the way conscience and awareness and health is concerned with pleasant life and future generation.

    This book explains the efficacy of education and health is gender equality which will work as a potion of medicine to empower women. This may not be perfect, but yet it will be beneficial for student teachers and research scholars.
