Abstract

Women are not treated equally in the world. The status of women is not at par with the status of men in the society. A detailed examination of women’s status for specific location is necessary to have the right information for effective planning and implementation of government policy. In this paper, an attempt has been carried out to study the socio-economic status of women in Assam by conducting a survey in Guwahati city of Assam. From the analysis it is apparent that the socio-economic status of women of Assam is not at all better than all India average, rather the status is found worse in case of many important indicators. The paper has been concluded with the view that equal access to all resources both by men and women in the world is very important for better development of any society. 

Key words: Status of women, Socio-economic, Society, Development
