Paradoxes and Challenges in Approaching Gender Equality in India Today

Despite the fact that the Constitution of India grants men and women equal rights, gender inequality and gender disparities remain. It therefore becomes imperative to question why there is no structural and visible change, especially in the realms of higher education and work, but also in domestic spaces. It is in this backdrop that #IMPRI Gender Impact Studies Center (GISC), IMPRI Impact and Policy Research Institute, New Delhi organized a Special Lecture under IMPRI #WebPolicyTalk series: The State of Gender Equality – #GenderGaps, named Paradoxes and Challenges in Approaching Gender Equality in India Today on 4th April, 2022.

Remembering Dr. Ambedkar

After 65 years of his demise, the point is how should we look at the life and ideas of Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar(1891-1956)? How are we remembering Dr. Ambedkar? We usually uphold his thought in the making of the Indian Constitution. The familiar depiction of his image dressed in a western suit with his right hand raised and his left hand holding a copy of the Indian Constitution typically speaks of his profound scholarship and his authorship of the text of the Indian Constitution which he so meticulously drafted as the Chairman of the Drafting Committee of the Constituent Assembly of India.
