Abstract

This study was mainly carried out to examine the role of women in decision-making process in the family. The study has focused on the type of treatment given by the menfolk to the womenfolk. Women play a vital role in the society. Apart from the matriarchal society, women play a decisive role in most of the patriarchal society also. The future of children depends, by and large, upon the mothers who generally stay at home and take care of their children’s health and education. This is particularly so in countries like India where society and life of people are moulded by traditional and spiritual foundations. Although women’s role is crucial in the family and household economy, women have not been given equal rights in social, political as well as economic fields. Women take part in taking decision on important family matters, viz., settlement of marriage, purchasing and selling of land, improvement and construction of house etc., though the decision of the elderly male members is accepted in most cases, in selecting job for women themselves or for other members of the family, women express their opinion which get due weightage.

Key Words
