MANY FACES OF GENDER INEQUALITY By Amartya Sen
Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen’s work on gender inequality is of seminal importance. His work on the theory of the household represents the household not as an undifferentiated unit, but as a unit of cooperation as well as of inequality and internal discrimination. He has worked on problems of discrimination against women in the development process, on survivorship differentials between men and women under conditions of social discrimination against women, and on women’s agency in the process of social development. Along with his academic collaborator Jean Drze, Professor Sen proposed and popularised the concept of “missing women” – estimated to exceed 100 million round the world – which has given us a new way of understanding and mapping the problem.
