Tribal Women of Arunachal Pradesh: Socio-Economic Status

V.M. Rao (Author)
Synopsis The present Arunachal Pradesh is a conglomeration of 25 tribes and over 100 sub-tribes. For a variety of historical and cultural reasons, they were kept out of the mainstream for centuries together resulting in a primitive economy of the region. Topography and climate too contributed their share to keep them aloof. Though the society is patriarchal, women are the major bread winners. Except in policy making, they have considerable freedom in their day-to-day life. However, very little is written about these simple, hard working, and beautiful women. The book is an in-depth study covering various socio-economic dimensions of women in Arunachal Pradesh. The author has performed a challenging task of collecting data from far-flung areas spread over five districts with a minimum of logistics. The study has covered five major tribes of Arunachal Pradesh, and the author has conceptualised, and has indeed displayed a deep sense of commitment to a sensitive subject. Coverage of issues has been very thorough. A number of workable suggestions are proposed to bring these women into the mainstream, and bring about their emancipation.
