Read the passage below and answer the
questions that follow based on your
understanding of the passage : (Q. No. 48
to 50)
More than 1 billion people in the
world today, almost half of them women,
live in unacceptable conditions of poverty,
mostly in the developing countries.
Poverty is a complex, multidimensional
problem, with origins in both the national
and international domains. In the early
1950s, nearly half of India’s population
was living in poverty. Since then, poverty
has been declining, though slowly, and
today vast disparities between and within
India’s states persist. It is estimated that
women and children account for 73
percent of those below the poverty line. At
the same time, the ratio of females to
males in India is 933 : 1,000. Increased
female labour force participation,
particularly among the lowest-income
households, is the single most important
coping strategy of poor households. This
trend makes female-headed households
and poor women in general a distinct
poverty group (Barrett and Beardmore,
Gender is central to how societies assign
roles, responsibilities, resources, and rights
between women and men. Allocation,
distribution, utilization, and control of
resources are thus incumbent upon gender
relations embedded in both ideology and
practice. Gender analyses do not merely
focus on women, but also look at the ways

in which men and women interact with
each other and the gendered nature of their
roles, relations and control over resources.
Unfortunately, even today in most parts of
the world there exist gender biases that
disadvantage women. Therefore, it is
sometimes inevitable that gender justice
become synonymous with the rights of
women and any discussion on gender and
poverty in essence becomes a discussion
on women and poverty. This is because, as
with all other issues, women and men
experience poverty in different ways.
The wide range of biases in society – among
them unequal opportunities in education,
employment and asset ownership – mean
that women have fewer opportunities.
Poverty accentuates gender gaps and when
adversity strikes, it is women who often are
most vulnerable (UNDP, 1997 : 64). This
increased vulnerability is most visible in
cases of disaster, conflict or involuntary
resettlement. Starting with discrimination
against the girl-child, even before she is
born, the life of the average Indian woman
is one of deprivation in every sphere. The
overall status of women in an Indian
family is lower than that of men. The girlchild
gets less nutrition, health care and
education : a lesser childhood than the
boy-child. She becomes a woman while
still young, often missing out on
adolescence and moving into early
motherhood – quickly, and often at a
young age. She has no say in any of these
crucial events of her life, although they
adversely affect her growth and
development. The root of gender
inequality, reflected in the higher
incidence of poverty among women in
India, is social and economic, not
constitutional. The Constitution is firmly
grounded in principles of liberty,
fraternity, equality and justice. Women’s
rights to equality and freedom from
discrimination are defined as justifiable
fundamental rights.
48. The growth and development of girl
child is not adversely affected by
(A) Malnutrition
(B) Early motherhood
(C) Caste
(D) Healthcare
49. Give the correct combination of
causes of gender inequality in India.
(a) Social
(b) Economic
(c) Malnutrition
(d) Constitutional
(A) (a) & (b) are correct.
(B) (a), (b) & (d) are correct.
(C) (c) & (d) are correct.
(D) All the above are correct.
50. Assertion (A) : Gender bias exists
in India.
Reason (R) : Poverty is one of
the factors for gender biases.
(A) (A) is true & (R) is false.
(B) (A) is false and (R) is true.
(C) (A) is true and (R) is partially
(D) Both (A) & (R) are false.
