Based on feminist environmentalist approach and capability approach, the study argues that increased women’s participation in natural resource management will ensure not only the efficient functioning and long-term sustainability of institutions but also boost women’s empowerment. To overcome discrimination based on the gender division of labour and property women need to increase their bargaining powers and strengthen their role and capabilities in forest management through greater participation in decision-making. This field-based study has highlighted that both men and women have a stake in forest regeneration and protection, though from different perspectives. This interesting research focusing on the role of Panchayati Raj Institutions in forest management with special reference to women’s participation provides very useful insights. This book will be of interest to social scientists, NGOs, programme managers, feminist researchers and activists. Printed Pages: 248.
