Description - Women Reinventing Development: The Odisha Experience by Asha Hans

Women in the State of Odisha have played an important role in development, however they remain mostly invisible in policy and research. This anthology undertakes a journey from the States' rich historical tradition to its present stage of development to locate women's spaces in this process. This book helps in refocusing attention on economic, political and social dimensions of women and development. Through discussing areas of health, education, employment, migration and political role of women in decision-making institutions, the authors suggest that only when women or any oppressed groups gained substantially on these fronts, would it have greater dignity and power in society.
The absence of analytical work on women's role in the development of the State in being increasingly felt. This volume, we hope, will fill to some extent, the intellectual gap in feminist literature.
