Empowerment of women representatives in Panchayati Raj: a profile from Rajasthan

The study covers women
empowerment in Rajasthan and its Panchayat members of the state.  As women constitute 50 percent of world’s population
but India has shown disproportionate sex ratios whereby female’s population has
been treated as lower in Indian society. Rajasthan and Haryana are two states
in India majorly been in news since so long and still these states are fighting
with the situation. Panchayatiraj system introduced through Empowerment of
women in India particularly in Rajasthan state. As there are several illiterate
women depends on their husband for their basic requirement even. As per
Panchayati raj system women will be given equal rights as men, is a biggest
victory of village women. Lady name Chhvi Rajawat sarpanch of her village Soda
(60 Km from Jaipur city) set an example of women power and status in Rajasthan.
In one side where I am talking about Chhavi Rajawat on the second hand there
are number of villages in Rajasthan 
state where we can found zero literacy in women, low sex ratio district
like Alwar, Kota, Pali there are several problems of caste, gender
discrimination, women illiteracy. To empower women the basic requirement is to
give them compulsory education, training and economic freedom. The major this
about education is, basic education will certify as literate and empower the
confidence in a person but to be in Panchayati System women should politically
educated for their-self and society. As by 2009 Indian government has raised
reservations for women in all tires of Panchayati Raj system from 33 to at
least 50%, which really affects the current scenario of women status in India. In
this study the major focus is to find out the real picture of women status in
Panchayati raj in Rajasthan State.
