TITLE: A Study on the Need of Women Education for Socio-Economic Development of Rural Assam Birinchi Choudhury**
Without the development the rural areas of Assam, we can never materialize our goal for being developed state by 2010 as declared by the present state govt. For the development of the rural Assam, including male, women education is a must. But women are neglected year after year. The attitude towards women hasn t changed yet. The literary rate shows this fact. According to the census, 2001, the literary rate in Assam is 64.28 percent where 71.93 percent for males and 56.03 percent for female. In 2000, the infant mortality rate is 66 per thousand for males and 83 per thousand for females. What does it mean? Presently, nearly 2.13 lakhs children of age group 6-14 years have not seen the varanda of primary school. In 2003, 2.39 lakhs of children have left the primary schools without completing the course. Of course it reduced to 44,222 in 2005(September). It is seen that all the children are living below the poverty line and their parents are illiterate. Therefore, including male, women should be educated for complete eradication of illiteracy and for being developed socially, economically, culturally and politically.
