Abstract: Globalization has brought in a number of changes in the world today changing it into a global market. The direct nexus between the industry, corporate world and higher education has brought a transformation in the skills required for various jobs. Natural and Pure Sciences are not considered supreme anymore. Applied Sciences and professional skills are much more in demand now. The new developments have led to the de-evaluation of the subjects in the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences. Women used to take admission in the Colleges in General Education, Arts or in Humanities in the early 1990’s. The trend is very much different now. They are now entering into the Professional courses offered by Public and self-financing Private Institutions for pursuing higher education in masculine dominated disciplines. The impact of these changes draws attention to the social change and gender equity. Feminist perspectives on women’s educational qualifications have expressed their concern on their under participation, underachievement and under-representation. This paper deals with the appraisal of the changes in choice of subjects available to them and the reasons for this change. The impact of social, cultural and economic disparities across various states in India on the enrollment of women varies from state to state. It is a well known fact that the proportion of women from the dalit and adivasi community is negligible. It is thus imperative to create a broad based database on higher education which is gender sensitive. It is high time that the Government evolved a framework on the appraisal of the role and functions of higher education, both public and private. For this, a focused vision is required which will reach out to more women by encompassing the issues of access to and equity with respect to education of women in the higher education sector.
