Self Help Groups (SHGs) have been identified as a way to alleviate poverty and promote women empowerment. Women empowerment aims at realising their identities, power and potentiality in all spheres of lives. But the real empowerment is possible only when a woman has increased access to economic resources leading to more say in family matters and participation in socio-political decisions. This publication is an attempt to capture CUTS endeavour of more than two decades in the field of women empowerment and sustainable gender development.
