Tribal Women in India: A Framework of Empowerment

Sarathi Besra | Dr. Pratima Sarangi

Abstract: The process of empowerment is dynamic and multifaceted. Empowerment is the condition of carrying out rights and duties properly, having assets and power, being aware, developing one's capacity, and taking part in decision - making. Therefore, empowerment can occur in a variety of contexts, including social, political, economic, and religious ones. The level of empowerment represents where a certain field or overall development is in its development process. The role of women in tribal cultures is significant and vital. Indian tribal women actively participate in their families' daily lives by taking care of the home and family duties. The status of tribal women has not improved despite several political, economic, and social developments. This paper evaluates and examines the degree to which tribal women in India are empowered in terms of their status and function in the social, political, economic, and religious domains, as well as their level of education, freedom, and entitlement to certain rights. The proposed research work is based on conceptual analysis. The study builds its case using secondary sources, such as reviews of previously published works in journals, books, reports from different NGOs, government agencies, and websites that feature content from these and other international organizations. This report critically looks at many models and aspects of women's empowerment in India. The main objectives are to identify the current situation of tribal women and define the role of civil society in empowering tribal women. This study is described in the following themes, the primary goals of this investigation: a) social empowerment among tribal women b) Economic empowerment of tribal women C) To identify the political empowerment of women. Further, this paper addresses the lacuna of empowerment in four themes: women?s empowerment, social empowerment, economic empowerment, and political empowerment.
