It goes without saying that women’s education has become a key development objective, and it is crucial to examine the initiatives, policies, programmes and projects that are formulated toward this goal.
Women in India have had an eventful history, from a decline in their status from the ancient to medieval times to the promotion of equal rights. In modern India, however, women have held high offices, including that of the president, prime minister, leader of the opposition, union ministers, chief ministers and governors.
