Author(s): Komal Kriti
India is the seventh largest country in the world, yet its women still have to experience some of the worst living situation on the globe. Women are the most affected and have been on leave for a long time. The word “Underprivileged” refers to a “group of persons deprived of a number of fundamental rights”. Underprivileged women are discriminated against not only by the upper caste individuals but also within their own communities. Underprivileged women’s issues and problems vary from those of other Indian women. Owing to illiteracy, poor environmental sanitation and inadequate awareness, the health and nutritional status of Underprivileged women is worse than others, rendering them more vulnerable to health problems. The present study is related to the constraints faced by them in acquiring various health and nutritional practices.
