About the Book :

There is hardly any activity in agricultural production except ploughing in which women are not actively involved. The crucial role of women in agriculture, allied occupations and household activities have, however, been underestimated and valued. There is hardly any appreciation and recognition of their extensive contribution. By and large, they have remained as "invisible workers". This study investigates the nature and extent of involvement of rural women and men in agriculture and home activities as well as the extent of exposure of modern crop technology to farm women. It prepares a comparative drudgery index for agriculture operations and examines the impact of employment, displacement, work load and income. The author has also studied the income. The author has also studied the extent of contribution of women in cultivation of major crops, role of women in decision-making in farming and the utilization pattern of savings in the family. Providing an insight into a typical agrarian profile of farm women, the study suggests several far-reaching implications to the planners, policy makers, administrators, scientists and change agents for transforming an agricultural based rural society.
