Abstract
Women in India have experienced quite a lot of struggles for being treated equally as par men and to have a
platform to raise their voice against this unequal treatment. In comparison to the early ages, Indian society has
become much liberal in case of equality of women. Now that the issue of equality has been raised and brought in
to the mainstream, the concept of empowerment of women has gained lot of attention in the academic and social
platform. When we talk about empowerment, economic empowerment is a vital issue in the process. When a
woman is economically independent, not only that empowers the woman but it empowers the whole family as
well. Thus the topic of women and employment is given much importance in the discussion of women‟s
equality and empowerment. In comparison to the rural women, the accessibility to information and opportunities
is much easier for urban women. Therefore the bottom-up approach to empowerment is a vital aspect in the
general process. Empowering women from the grass root level will strengthen the foundation of the economy
and contribute to the overall development of the country.
Thus, this paper is an attempt to understand the aspect of women and employment in the rural areas. It also
focuses on what kind of livelihood activities are these women engaged in and how are these activities helping
them to be economically independent. This study is entirely based on empirical data collected from the Madhya
Khangia Gaon Panchayat under Jorhat Development Block of Jorhat district through personal interviews. The
secondary data is collected from relevant articles published in journals, books, newspapers, magazines, census
reports, and government reports.

Key words: Gender inequality, empowerment, bottom-up approach, rural livelihoods, rural women, economic development.
