Abstract
Recently, the involvement and contribution of women in development programs has become the subject of scholarly research and policy debates. One group argues that though women participation in development related work is now widely visible but they are not able to contribute up to the desired level as they are constrained by traditional socio-cultural practices and strong male dominance. The other group holds the view that despite the socio-cultural barriers women always work hard to fulfill their job expectations. Based on a case of study of Anganwadi Workers of ICDS project in Odisha, this paper extends this debate further. It is argued that fact that women, though women work hard and contribute significantly to the proper implementation of development schemes against several odds and obstacles their contribution is not made visible by a well-designed male-biased mechanism.
