Socio Economic Status of Women - Manual Scavengers 

Jan Sahas with support from UN Women's Fund for Gender Equality is implementing a three year project titled “Dignity Campaign- Action for Liberation of Dalit Manual Scavenger Women in India”. It aims to liberate, rehabilitate and empower 10,000 women manual scavengers through strengthening their economic and political rights. The project is implemented in 15 districts of three states- Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh for a three year period from January 2013- December 2015. 


A baseline assessment of the project was undertaken in 2013. Primary data was collected from select locations in nine districts of all three states using structured questionnaires and focus group discussions (FGDs). 


The baseline assessment aimed at gathering information pertaining to socio-economic status of women manual scavengers who constitute an astonishing 98% of the community. It focused on analyzing the extent of women's participation in local governance structures, their access to various government schemes and services as well as realization of their rights and entitlements. Data was collected from all women manual scavengers in select locations of nine districts adding up to 480 women. The analysis also included a review of secondary data.
