Abstract:

Empowering rural women of India naturally uplifts womanhood of the nation. The challenges they face are critical compared to urban women. Factors like inequality, opportunities and recognition play a vital role in women's mental health and their growth. This study investigated the potential associations between gender bias, self-efficacy, and mental health among rural women. This research included 150 women participants residing primarily in Bawana and Delhi NCR, aged between 15-30 years. This study used Convenience, Purposive and Snowball sampling to acquire responses and adopted a mixed-methods approach - both online surveys and personal interviews were conducted. Various psychological measures were employed to derive the correlation among gender bias, self-efficacy and mental health. Correlation coefficients and p-values were calculated, and Shapiro-Wilk tests were conducted to assess normality.
Correlational analyses revealed very weak positive correlations between the variables. These correlations were not statistically significant, indicating an absence of robust linear relationship. The lack of significant correlations emphasizes the need for a detailed exploration of multifaceted determinants beyond gender bias and self-efficacy to understand mental health outcomes in this demographic comprehensively.
