Empowerment of Muslim Women in Char Areas: A Study of the Morigaon District of Assam

Author(s) Irfanul Islam, Abdus Salam
Country India
Abstract This study embarks on an in-depth exploration of the socio-political and economic dimensions of womens empowerment in the char areas of the Morigaon district in Assam, a region marked by its unique geographical and demographic characteristics. Despite accounting for nearly half of the nations population, women in India, particularly those in the under-researched char areas, grapple with low literacy rates and limited access to educational resources, starkly contrasting with the national growth figures. This research aims to dissect the multifaceted layers of empowerment, or the lack thereof, among Muslim women in these regions, scrutinizing their socio-economic status, political awareness, and the systemic obstacles impeding their holistic development. Leveraging both primary and secondary data, and employing empirical, descriptive, and analytical methods, the study seeks to unveil the nuances of empowerment and the factors contributing to the continued backwardness of the char areas, thereby providing a comprehensive understanding of the life and challenges faced by the women residing in these isolated riverine islands of the Brahmaputra.
Keywords Women empowerment, Char areas, Socio-economic status, Muslim women, Literacy rate.
