Women constitute half of the humanity, even contributing two-third of world’s work hours. Rural women in India constitute 77.00 per cent of the female population. They share abundant responsibility and perform a wide spectrum of duties; even then they suffer from being both economically and socially invisible. It was found that Majority of the rural women involved in the income generating activities of Self-Help Groups were having middle age (21 to 40 years), belonged to general caste, were involved in business, were educated up to middle school, were having no land, had medium material possession, were from Joint family, belonged to large families, having more than 5 members, were having medium socio-economic status, were having medium social participation, were married, were having medium annual income (Rs. 116870.82 to Rs. 180545.84), had undergone no training and were having medium mass media exposure. And no correlation between the profile and type of SHG was observed. It was suggested that a comparative analysis of the empowerment of women those involved in income generating activities with women not involved in income generating activities may be conducted, the areas of the research can be extended and sufficiently large sample of rural women may be studied.
