This book scrutinizes the processes that have been set in motion through the demand for a 33 per cent reservation for women in rural local governments in India. Among the issues discussed is the socio economic composition of the new Panchayati Raj, the question whether the women are really present and active in local bodies, whether they have gained any power and how they dealt with corruption. Also makes an assessment of how far the women have become empowered and gained confidence along with the the degree to which the quota empowers them as a group.
