In today’s world women’s autonomy, which is one of the most important indicators of women empowerment, is very well-known concern regarding the gender issue for inclusive growth of an economy. In most of the cases the role of women in family decision making is negligible, where the male member of the family is the final decision maker, which is more visible in the poor families of the developing countries. There are different dimensions of women’s autonomy. The present paper identifies four such dimensions like decision in family planning, Decision in savings, Decision in expenditure and decision in healthcare. This paper attempts to find how far education, age and income have an impact on these four dimensions. In our study the target respondents were only the women segment from Kolkata Municipal Corporation’s slum areas and the primary data has been collected by applying multistage sampling technique. Multinomial Logistic Regression was run through the statistical software SPSS 15 to test the relationship of these variables to all four dimensions of Decision making.
