Women's Equality in India: A Myth or Reality

K. Uma Devi (Author)
Synopsis "The book seeks to unravel the forces which have acted as an immense source of exploitation of women labour in India, particularly, in agricultural sector. The book based on an empirical study, relates to multifacet exploitation of women agricultural labourers. It is a comprehensive work on women workers and the problems of discrimination against them. India lives in villages and can be understood much better in its rural background. Hence the rural scenario and the process of development in India cannot be understood in right perspective unless the pathetic condition and ever burning problems of women labourers are viewed in right angle. In this given background the present book highlights the extent of exploitation of women workers in agriculture. The book not only deals with deplorable living and working conditions but also opens a number of issues relating to wage discrimination and above all, in human social as well as economic exploitation of women workers in agriculture. Besides analysing these aspects the book also suggests a number of vital policy measures to deal with the women labour in agriculture. This book will be of immense value to those who deal with women welfare, students of women studies, social workers, policy makers and also to those who wish to understand the pitiable conditions and degree of exploitation of women labour in agriculture in India. This book will open flood gates to further research in the field of agricultural industry and labour."
