(Size: 24 x 16 cms), Taking up the proposition that women's presence in rural political bodies will also lead to their empowerment, the author developed an analytical framework based on recent theoretical literature on quotas in politics and the concept of empowerment, as well as on studies on women in the Panchayati Raj. The empirical data was collected in Orissa through a survey of 105 women and 80 men and a large number of qualitative interviews. Among the Major issues discussed in this book is the socio-economic composition of the new Panchayati Raj, the question whether the women are really present and active in the local bodies, whether they have gained any power and how they deal with corruption.
