Women Empowerment in South Asia

This article is a summary of  the work done by Jejeebhoy (2004), the study looks at the lives of women and investigates measurements of their self-rule in diverse locales of South Asia—Punjab in Pakistan, and Uttar Pradesh in north India and Tamil Nadu in south India. It investigates the context oriented elements basic watched contrasts and surveys the degree to which these distinctions could be credited to religion, nationality, or north–south social refinements. Discoveries recommend that while women’ self-sufficiency regarding choice making, portability, opportunity from debilitating relations with spouse, and access to and control over financial assets is obliged in each of the three settings, women in Tamil Nadu admission impressively better than other women, regardless of religion. Discoveries give little backing to the recommendation that women in Pakistan have less independence or control over their lives than do Indian ladies. Nor do Muslim ladies be they Indian or Pakistani—practice less independence in their own lives than do Hindu ladies in the subcontinent. Rather, discoveries recommend that in the patriarchal and sexual orientation stratified structures overseeing the northern allotment of the subcontinent, ladies’ control over their lives is more compelled than in the southern region.
