Giving an Identity to Rural Women of Uttarakhand

Since past two decades, the issues of women have attracted the attention of the whole world. The year of 1975 was a milestone in the history of women's movement when United Nations Organisation (UNO) declared 1975-85 as the International Decade for Women. As a result Women in Development (WID), Women and Development (WAD), and Gender and Development (GAD) approaches have been adopted at national and international levels for women's development and advancement. Recently, gender mainstreaming and rights-based approaches to women empowerment have gained momentum. The concept of these approaches have stemmed from declarations and documents emerged out of a number of international conventions and conferences specifically World Conference on Human Rights (Vienna, 1993); International Conference on Population and Development (Cairo, 1994); World Summit for Social Development (Copenhagen, 1995); Fourth World Conference on Women (Beijing, 1995); Second UN Conference on Human  Settlements (Istanbul, 1996); World Food Summit (Rome, 1996); and the fiveyear reviews of these conferences. The Convention on Elimination of all Kinds of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) has also been recognized as an international instrument for addressing the gender-based discrimination prevailing in most of the societies in the world.
