Abstract:
The Ministry of Rural Development launched the National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) in 2011 with the aim of ensuring livelihood enhancement and diversification and increased access to financial services for the rural poor. NRLM is the largest government programme working exclusively with rural women, and therefore the Mission harbours immense potential for addressing poverty alleviation and increasing livelihood and financial opportunities and options for rural women. NRLM focuses strongly on creating institutions of poor women, building their social capital to claim social and economic rights and entitlements, leveraging economic benefits from collectivization and increasing their collective bargaining power vis-a-vis institutions.

Abstract:
The study maps existing evidence on gender biased sex selection in the Indian context, weaving in significant social debates and policy developments that have influenced perceptions, and pathways to action. It offers practical suggestions to advance the path of critical inquiry by focusing on different domains such as family and household, education, labour and employment, and on institutions that directly or indirectly aid or combat the practice of sex selection.
