This is the second edition of the book. The book has been written especially for UGC NET Exam, which is conducted twice a year i.e. in June & December. Not a single book is available on Women’s Studies especially for UGC NET Exam. It is my endeavour to fill this gap. The first section of this book deals with important facts related to the subject. It contains all the information in tabular form for quick revision. Thereafter, 31 Sets of Question Papers (Paper II & Paper III) asked in previous UGC NET Exam from 2004 to 2015 has been solved with detailed explanations. If any NET aspirant studies these Question-Answers carefully then I am sure that success is not far for such aspirants, as often many questions from previous year exam are repeated or asked in a modified form each year. Those students who are appearing in State Level Eligibility Test or Ph. D Entrance Exam may also find this book equally useful for them.
