Description
Dr. Bidyut Mohanty discusses her book, “Woman and Political Empowerment.” She begins by discussing the importance of registration and political power in regards to women’s political empowerment. She explains that because many births in India take place at home they do not register their children. She stresses the importance of registering both births and deaths, as well as, women who become pregnant. Dr. Mohanty then explores the 73rd constitutional amendment and its importance for women. She then goes on to discuss the problem of child trafficking, specifically with female children who are sold out of country. From there she goes on to explore the topic of sex selection and the preference for male children and the effect this has had on Indian culture and female babies.
