Abstract

This article charts the growth of Shri Mahila Griha Udyog Lijjat Papad, from its inception to the present, when its role as a vital avenue for promoting women's empowerment has been recognised. Empowerment as envisaged by the Shri Mahila Griha Udyog Lijjat Papad, however, is more than a mere boosting women's earning capabilities. It enables an assertion of all the other rights and to her own personal space in a patriarchal society.
