Women empowerment has been a burning topic in the present day. But the question arises whether there is impact of women empowerment on the women belonging to the villages of Assam or whether they are aware of their rights and privileges provided by the constitution. Women are regarded as lower in status than man especially in the villages despite the efforts of the rallying cries, Medias, NGO’s and Government Policies for empowering women. This paper is a brief attempt to study about the status, privileges and challenges of the women of Ratanpur and Padi villages in Jonai sub-division, Dhemaji, Assam. The status, privileges and challenges of the women of Ratanpur and Padi villages are examined by unstructured interview schedules. The stereotype of women as subordinate to men continues to exist in Assam, particularly in the villages.
