This chapter aims to quantify women's empowerment from household to society, through their participation in small-scale water projects. For the purpose of comparison of women's empowerment through participation in water management, a control village, Char Tetulia with similar geographical and demographical characteristics was also selected. In an attempt to realize this vision, the Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) has given greater importance to gender and development and has been working to promote gender equity through Small Scale Water Resources Development Subprojects (SSWRDSP). Government of Bangladesh declared National Women Development Policy in 1997, which was a step towards ensuring women's equal participation in development. The study area was selected in such a way that all dimensions of water resource management like, flood control, drainage, water conservation for irrigation and domestic usages could be fully covered. Various studies have been done in the areas of women in development, and gender and development for water resources management.
