October 15 International Day for Rural Women, and the right time to recognise efforts made by agrarian women as the backbone of society.

Initial policies aimed towards women did not achieve desired results due to underdeveloped information channels and lack of representation by women in rural areas.
Although most efforts by women go unnoticed due to non-quantification of their contribution, we have tried to highlight some statistics which show that rural women have a long way to go, and require deliberate interventions to empower their status in Indian society.
