[Full Text]



Dr. Gauri Dhingra



Educated, Women, Uneducated, Causes, and Impact



Around 64 % women of Rajasthan are unemployed. The problem is with the Rajasthan women who are educated still do not work. They are either shackled in the old customs and traditions like family pressure, patriarchal or other problems like childcare, health issues, working hours etc. so they do not go for work. The Researcher aims to examine the socio-economic causes restraining educated women to work and also to interpret the impact on their life. It is very important to increase the women-working ratio amongst educated women as it makes a dramatic difference in their life and helps in reducing their frustration, domestic violence and will also boost her decision-making.
