The issue of universalising secondary education and elimination of gender and social disparities in primary and secondary education in India is central to much of educational policy and programme formulation. However, ensuring gender and social equity in secondary education is a huge challenge and it is believed that the presence of women teachers could make a difference at the secondary level. In this context, this study explores the role of women teachers at secondary level and examines their significance in achieving the national goals of gender and equity in secondary education, with a special focus on the state of Rajasthan.
