Data from the National Family Health Survey 5 also shows that married women are now actively participating in three major household decisions. These include making health facilities for yourself, making major home purchase decisions and visiting your family or relatives.
Increased role in rural areas as well

In 2015-16, the share of women in making major household decisions was about 84 per cent. The active participation of women in these three big cases across the country has now increased to 88.7 percent.
