Abstract

This paper is trying to examine the democratic institutional responses to the problem of women and food insecurity as both are embedded together in Indian society. The paper tries to locate the responses and interventions in the issue of women and food insecurity from the different democratic institutions of India i.e. the government, judiciary, media and political parties. Although food insecurity affects people across the board but we are focusing only on women, as they are more vulnerable to it.
