Abstract

Gender issues are a focus of discussion in present day research in Kerala. A state with high level human development Index and Gender development index shows economic political and social invisibility of females received attention in Kerala’s academic circles. Majority of the studies highlighted male dominance as a reason for the present day female deprivation. But the special characteristic of reproductive role of female has not received much attention. The rights of women and children are intertwined during the infant stages of life and the health of children is intimately connected with the conditions in which their mothers work. The first six years of life (and especially the first two years) have a decisive and lasting influence on a child’s health, well-being, aptitudes and opportunities. The absent from market work for a long period during their younger ages (potential age), reduces the experience and competitiveness of mother. The full time mental and physical presence of mother during the child’s early six years is the right of the child because; any deficiency of food or mental care will negatively influence the entire future achievement of the child. The compulsory withdrawal, from market work reduces the efficiency of women in labour market and thereby reduces her earning capacity, in future reduces the material well being of the child in his/her future development. Present paper discusses about the contradictions of child’s right and mothers rights and link the role of society in it. This paper is basically a theoretical one.
