Man and woman are both indentical and both demonstrate a pivotal role in the creation and development of the society in general. All gender discrepancies are created by society and so gender inequality is therefore a form of inequality which is distinct from other forms of economic and social inequalities. It resides not only outside the household but also centrally within it. In this regard the development process in the NER is not gender neutral. The present status of women in North East Region (NER) is satisfactory in terms of those women who are blessed enough to avail each and every opportunity of the modern world. The present book is an effort to analyze the status of women and their empowerment in terms of various indicators in the state of NER, using both primary and secondary data obtained from various sources. Although Government has undertaken a number of steps the situation has remained gloomy mainly because the educated women are not forward looking. There is a need to create awareness towards achieving the desired goal of women empowerment in the state.
