SOCIAL STATUS OF WOMEN IN MEGHALAYA IN NORTH EAST INDIA

Dr. Pranab Prasad Borah, Dr. Gargi Phukan.

Abstract
North-East India has for a long time attracted interest as the Meeting-place of Indo-Aryan and Mongoloid races, each with its own distinctive culture, but each receiving as well as giving something of what it has, to create a society that is distinctive. One prominent feature of society in this region is the comparative freedom that women enjoy, albeit in different degrees. Just as North-East Indian society can be classified as either Aryan-based or Mongoloid within the so-called Mongoloid communities themselves, distinction must be made between those that are martilineal, as in Meghalaya, and those that are patrilineal, as in the rest of the tribal areas of this region.1 The three main characteristics of the „matrilineal system‟ followed in the Garo, Khasi and Jaintia social structure are : (1) Matrilineal inheritance, (2) Matrilineal descent and (3) Uxorilocal residence.

Key words: women, Meghalaya, social life, Garos, Khasis, Jainties.
