This research project aimed to identify different types and nature of economic, social and political inequalities that women experience. The research also wanted to shed lights on factors like religious identity, geographical location, occupations, existing social, political and policy disparities and exploitations that contribute to inequality between men and women. Finding out these different dimensions, factors and manifestations of these inequalities in Bangladesh context was the first task for the research investigation. Further more, attempt was made to analyze how different unequal practices adversely affect the country’s overall development. For this purpose, the primary research findings was juxtaposed against the gendered trends of economic and social development in Bangladesh. Available national data (e.g. household income and expenditure survey, national labor force survey) and published research reports was examined from the perspective of research findings from the field.
