Introduction

In India the women in the unorganized sector suffer multiple deprivations that have undermined their potential marginalizing and secluding them from the mainstream (Krishnaswami, 1976; Parthasarathy, 2007; Srivastava, 2007). However, the economic compulsions and changing socio-cultural attitude towards women have necessitated women’s participation through collective action in the labour market. The co-operatives, as a balancing model to the discrepancies of market regime, have helped women organize and mobilize for joint action and achieve better bargaining power as buyers and sellers in the market place (Dash, 2007). Empowerment of women through cooperatives is found crucial to poverty reduction and human development leading to the enhanced productivity and higher growth trajectory. In view of the above, this study outlines the participatory strategies initiated by the District level cooperatives in the Banking and Dairy sectors in Dakshina Kannada District in the State of Karnataka in India. It also delineates the impact of participation of women members in such initiatives leading to their sustainable empowerment and provides policy implications towards this end. The study findings would contribute new knowledge to the literature continuum on the integral theme of women empowerment that is vital to strengthen the cooperative essence and realize democratic objectives. It would also support the policy makers apart from providing participatory insights to the co-operatives.
The rest of the paper is organized as follows: The second section provides literature review. The third section explains the research method. The fourth section presents the role of cooperatives in empowering women. The fifth section explains the rationale for the participatory strategies in the cooperatives.
