Can Micro Initiatives Strengthen Links Among Gender, Development and Democracy: Empirical Evidence from the State of Andhra Pradesh
AbstractThis study examines how far women self-help groups model of development has helped empower women and whether formal and informal institutions relating to state, market and civil society have become inclusive of poor women due to women self-help groups model of development. The authors articulate that extreme poverty and widespread inequality between men and women are the main impediments to democracy and development. Further, this study suggests that as gender equality is an important factor in the development process, empowerment of women may address this issue to some extent. To sum it up, among all the women-based group models of poverty alleviation, the Self-Help Groups (SHGs) are promoted as basic entities and are federated to tackle higher order functions.
