A flood of literature on the problems concerning women in the more advanced countries have come out. But very few of these works could serve the desired objectives in terms of composite content and perspective. Now the debate on women's development has affected the intellectual community as well and there has developed a ranging discussions on what should constitute the agenda of women's development.
It is this phenomena in its varied dimensions which the editors of this encyclopaedia has tried to explore. They have provided an objective critique of the contradictions and consequences of the development and disparities. There are some definite linkages between development and disparities. Tackling as it does various concerns which are of growing importance in most developing countries, the collection in this encyclopaedia is of thought provoking critical reviews/papers/articles from India and abroad which would appeal to a wide range of readers.
The encyclopaedia on women's development in 21 century encompasses a wide range of content and approaches in its admit and as such it is expected to be of much interest to a vast spectrum of scholars.
