ABSTRACT
All over the world, women have been excluded from gaining political power. The 73rd constitutional amendment in India has allowed women to play a very significant role in local governance. The present study tries to find out the diverse psycho-social and political factors contributing to women's participation in governance. It also explores some of the important psychological aspects that help women to function effectively. The study is also aimed at highlighting these women's contribution to policy making. These factors would help in generating rich insights about the empowerment of this specific group. Some recommendations for training these women will be made on the basis of this study.

Key words: Psycho-socio-political empowerment, recommendations, training, governance, policy
