Abstract

Though the 73rd constitutional amendment enlisted participation of women in decision-making bodies, their roles have been actually performed either by their husbands or any male member of the family. The training camp in Gangoh kshetra panchayat, Uttar Pradesh, was an eye-opener to both males and females of the region regarding the discrimination faced by women inside and outside of the household.
