Description: The greater access to higher education and larger and effective participation in the decision making process are widely considered the effective means of women’s empowerment. In Sikkim, the author observes, the literacy rate and access to higher education among women has risen sharply in the recent years, in research and teaching profession the women have almost caught up with the men, but the participation of women in bureaucracy, particularly in higher bureaucracy, is abysmally low.
