Access of Women and Girls to Technical Vocational Education in India. Studies in Technical and Vocational Education 36.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The role of women in India has undergone several changes over many years. Today women are emerging as self-reliant persons with equal status in all spheres of society, but they are still mostly employed in low-paid, low-skilled and low-status jobs. The emerging trends in technology indicate a greater need for the employment of many women, particularly in the skill-intensive and knowledge-intensive modern sectors. New educational policies and programs need to be formulated. Strategies must be worked out to overcome the lingering problems women face and improve the access of women to technical and vocational education and related areas of employment in India.
