Which is not even allowed to have been accessed to them. • Ironically, women have not actively participated in their own emancipation mainly due to low economic independence. •With their age, they have been raped, kicked, killed, subdued & humiliated almost daily.
  7. •About 66% of the female population in rural area is unutilized. This is mainly due to existing social customs. •In agriculture & animal care the women contribute 90% of the total work force. •Women constitute almost half of the population, perform nearly 2/3rd of its work hours, receive 1/10th of the world’s income & own less than 1/100th of the world property. •Among the world’s 900 million illiterate people, women out number men two to one. •70% of people living in poverty are women. •Lower sex ratio i.e. 933.

They constitute less than 1/7th of the administrators & managers in developing countries. •Only 10% seats in world’s parliament & 6% in national cabinets are held by them. COntd.
