About the Book :

Gender and Discrimination : Health, Nutritional Status, and Role of Women in India

This volume shows that there exist pronounced inequalities between men and women with respect to wages, ownership of properties, opportunities in education, professional careers, job opportunities, and several other indicators. A study of wage disparity between men and women finds that the labour market is highly sex-segregated; while cultural reasons restrict women's access to work, their freedom to participate in the formal economy is even more curtailed. At a micro-level analysis of intra-household discrimination, it is observed that differences in resource allocation between male and female members often lead to differences in health status. Case studies from India and other South Asian countries emphasize dominant nutritional and health disorders among women and children. The volume concludes with the methodological aspects of gender discrimination and gender inequality measures that are significant especially in the context of rural areas.
