Determinants of women job participation in MGNREGA scheme-case study of Burdwan District in West Bengal/Krishna Singh, Soumyendra Kishore Datta . Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) has made significant achievements with regard to mobilisation of women wage workers, gender parity of wages and increased control of women on their earnings. There has been acceptability from large sections of society that MGNREGA has provided better working conditions, less exploitative work culture and of course better wages for women, though not conceived on gender lines. Schedule II of the paragraph six of the act emphasizes on the word Priority which is evident of gender mainstreaming. As the text denotes that priority should be placed on women in the allocation of work in such a way that at least one third of the beneficiaries shall be women . The book tries to address the underlying premise by deliberating on some thematic concerns and initiatives taken through MGNREGA to encourage women participation and striking gender equity in the field of rural employment. It discusses the various issues and concerns relevant for gendered participation in such schemes and the significant changes that they have brought about. This is an attempt to identify major constraints on women s access to productive employment opportunities through the employment guarantee program. The book is an effort to reach out to the wider public with ideas that call for action and to generate the dynamics of discourse to bring about a major transformation in the larger development paradigm.
