Book Description

Bridging the gender gap in higher education is fundamental throughout India. Education is the yardstick by which the growth and development of a country are delineated, and it helps to discipline the mind, sharpen the intellect and refine the spirit. There has been a phenomenal growth in the number of women enrolling in higher education in India since the country gained independence, with around 45% of female admissions to such institutions in recent years. This collection explores the role of women in higher education, their emergence as a strong force for social change, and the implications of this on society. It also discusses technology’s impact on women’s education, constraints on women in higher education, and issues and challenges for women in the workplace.
