Making Development Gender Inclusive in Jharkhand

  • 04 Jun, 2018

Jharkhand, one of the youngest of Indian states, over the years, has become one of the fastest growing state in India. However, to make the growth process inclusive for women, the state needs to create an appropriate socio-economic environment for women by making different interventions like, expansion of livelihood generation activities to include women, ending violence against women and ensuring access to basic services like health and education. To support these activities, strengthening gender budgeting is the prerequisite and it could be complemented by strict implementation of laws namely, Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act (PWDVA), Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act (PCPNDT), Witch Craft Prevention Act.
