Throughout their lifecycle, from before birth until death, women are subjected to various forms of gender discrimination. In India, and the wider global context, there is widespread prevalence of discrimination, from dietary intake (both in quality and content), schooling, and clothing, to health and marriage. As this volume shows, overcoming each of these disparities leads to the empowerment of women. It focuses on disparities against women emanating under the framework of mortality, natality, basic facilities, special opportunities, professional work, and the household, highlighting possible ways of combating these prejudices.
