The family is a strong force for social cohesion and integration, and, as such, should be strengthened. The inadequate support to women and insufficient protection to their respective families can affect society as a whole and undermine efforts to achieve gender equality. In India, the emergence and rapid multiplication of Self-Help Groups (SHGs) is a phenomenon that is gaining increasing importance in the country's development scenario. SHGs are being viewed as a strategy for women's empowerment, as well as for poverty reduction. SHGs are a conduit for routing a wide range of government-sponsored development messages and schemes. Non-governmental organizations have increasingly been adopting SHGs as a strategy to bring women together, at a faster pace and larger scale than the collective building processes adopted by them earlier. This book examines the role of SHGs in the socio-economic empowerment of poor rural women in India.

Book Description New Century Publications. Hardcover. Condition: New. According to Census 2011, population of India increased from 103 crore in 2001 to 121 crore in 2011, an increase of 18 crore or 17.6 percent. Out of 121 crore, 62.4 crore (51.6 percent) were males and 58.6 crore (48.4) were females. Women play a critical role in the family which is the basic unit of a society. Family is a strong force for social cohesion and integration and as such should be strengthened. The inadequate support to women and insufficient protection to their respective families affect society as a whole and undermines efforts to achieve gender equality. In different cultural, political and social systems, various forms of family exist and the rights, capabilities and responsibilities of family members must be respected. The emergence and rapid multiplication of Self-help Groups (SHGs) based on micro credit is a phenomenon that is gaining increasing importance in the development scenario. SHGs are being viewed by governments and NGOs as a strategy for both women?s empowerment as well as poverty reduction. SHGs are a conduit for routing a wide range of government-sponsored development messages and schemes. NGOs have increasingly been adopting SHGs as a strategy to bring women together, at a faster pace and larger scale than the collective building processes adopted by them earlier. This book explains and examines the role of SHGs in the socio-economic empowerment of poor rural women in India. Seller Inventory # NewCentury-9788177083255
