Abstract

Although women constitute almost half of the total population of Bangladesh, they experience adverse situations in terms of socio-economic inequality and gender disparity. They have very limited access to income generating as well as social activities due to number of social, cultural and religious barriers. They are also economically dependent and vulnerable and socially discriminated. Participation of rural women in decision making regarding family matters is very low. They are the most deprived section of the society. In this article an attempt has been taken to focus on the status of women in Bangladesh. Although government has taken many initiatives to ensure the political rights, increase awareness, empowerment and participation for vulnerable and disadvantaged women. Therefore, it can be recommended that government and non-government organisations should work jointly to ensure equal opportunities for both women and men to access into education, health, employment and other facilities.
