Marginalised Women and Economic Development: Empowerment of Agricultural Labour

Kolla Siva Rama Krishna (Author) Kotta Ramesh (Author) Gandham Siva Rama Krishna (Author)
Synopsis Though a large number of women workers are found among the ranks of agriculture workers and their contribution to the rural economy is significant, they have not received adequate attention. Women agriculture workers encounter many difficulties because of their distressing and pitiable working conditions such as long working hours, low wages, inhuman treatment and gender discrimination. The present publication concentrates on the plight of the women workers in agriculture and rural development programmes, investigates the role of women, their migration problem, their status in the home and society and also looks into different welfare programmes introduced by the Government and Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) to ameliorate and change the lifestyles of women workers.
