Dr. Priyanka Srivastava
The evolution of science is like a boon to the world, as human beings come to know a lot about the world they are living in including the activities they indulge into. Furthermore, the development of technology along with the advancement in Science helps to bring in a revolution in various fields such as medicine, agriculture, education, information and technology, and many more. Science and Technology are the main components for social and economic development of a nation. The rapid growth of technology and concurrent digital revolution is creating a tremendous cultural shift globally. Science and Technology has permeated into every sphere of life and has become a part of day-today living. In India, there is a priceless contribution of great scientist like C.V Raman, Vikram Sarabhai Meghnath Saha, Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam in development of science and technology but many of us are unaware of the contributions of Indian women in field of science and technology.

In this paper the probable causes behind such inequality is discussed. This paper also presents the role played by Indian women in science and technology and also highlights some of the basic issues affecting the progress of women in field of science and technology.
