This is an attempt to investigate gender issues in the mining sector in India with a view to understand how these issues impact on Sustainable Development imperatives in the mining industry as part of a broader study of the Mining and Minerals for Sustainable Development initiative. Because of the male-dominated nature of the industry, in trying to better understand the gender issues at play, the study focuses not only on womenâ€™s experiences but also analyses how they are utterly neglected within the industry. It considers how mining industry contributes to sustainable development by promoting womenâ€™s economic advancement and reducing womenâ€™s poverty, by ensuring greater involvement of women in the mining sector.
