Abstract: Women have to play a variety of roles like the political, social, religious, economic and cultural etc. Among these the political role is vital through which they can achieve equal rights, opportunities and status at par with men. Though various efforts have been made by the government to uplift the status of women, but the situation is not very satisfactory yet. There are several provisions made by the constitution to uplift their position, role and status in Indian society. Despite these provisions the status of women in demographic, literacy, employment and political fields is not very satisfactory. It is only through empowerment of women the development of the society and the nation is possible. So a lot of measures are needed to improve their position in society.
