Dr Ranjana Kumari speaks about Draft National Policy for Women 2016

Our Director, Dr Ranjana Kumari, was ask about her views on the Draft National Policy for Women 2016. Here is what she had to say:

“The policy should have mandates that can translate into achievable action. The government needs to ensure that every year budget is allocated and spent on the policy implementation and evaluation of is performance. Monitoring and implementation of the scheme should be done in a way that the policy administration is both – centralized where necessary and decentralized where important. The policy document needs to be a vision for all sections of women in the country. It needs to break away from the dominant challenges of cultural, religious social bondage and slavery. The marginalized women need to be the centerpiece of the National Policy for Women which not only covers up for the historic deprivation but also paves way for futuristic needs of women and society in general.”
