This study using access to education and health as the indicators of gender inequality examines gender inequality and state level openness in the different states of India. Further, the study's findings show that at the sub-national level in India higher per capita income is accompanied with lower gender inequality. However, in some high income states gender inequality is also very high. High gender inequality was also observed in the states which score high in the openness index.
