Preet Rustagi (1967–2017)

Preet Rustagi (1967–2017)

It is with deep regret that I share the news of the sudden demise of Preet Rustagi, professor at the Institute for Human Development (IHD), New Delhi on 21 August 2017. She was all set to join the International Centre for Research on Women (ICRW) in New Delhi.

Preet distinguished herself in her scholarship, and her contributions, largely to gender studies, as well as child welfare, education, etc, will remain invaluable. In fact, some of her works in the realm of gender, such as Gender Biases and Discrimination against Women: What Do Different Indicators Say? (Centre for Women’s Development Studies in collaboration with UNIFEM, South Asia Regional Office, 2003), “Significance of Gender-related Development Indicators: An Analysis of Indian States” (Indian Journal of Gender Studies, 2004), and “Employment Trends for Women in India” (International Labour Organization, New Delhi Office, 2010) have been widely cited and used.
