Woman education assumes significances from the point of view of enabling them to efficiently participate in the developmental process as well as in changing their subjected position in society. However, the present scenario does not satisfy the statement mainly in rural India.  

“I start my Paper with the famous quote by Nobel Prize winner Malala Yusuf “One Child, One teacher, one book and one pen can change the world. With this motivating line. I grab my research objective to enlighten the scenario of women education in rural India. Education is a powerful word that has capacity to transform the world, which even a weapon can’t. India is a country with different flavors of soils and having 75 % rural area. According to Infochangeindia in India, we have a total women population of 49,48,28,644 and out of this 359817177 are of rural India and rest 135011467 belong to urban areas. Rural women have not bound themselves to limited infrastructure scenario as is perceived from the contribution of women economically in country where 31 % rural women and only 11.5 % urban women are the change makers according to the report of World Bank. This research paper is an attempt to examine partial role of government to serve uplift education in rural India in Comparison to urban area. This research Paper also focuses on Women Economical participation of rural area v/s urban area. If economic participation of women in rural area is more than urban area then why the government fails to implement and motivate the ratio of literacy in rural India.  This paper also highlights the need of feminist participants for understanding the actual position of education in India.

Key Words: Economic Participation; Education; Literacy; Rural India; Rural Women; Urban Women.
