About the Book
Development literature and policy in India has failed to recognize the significant role that women in farm households play in agricultural operations and related activities. The present study seeks to fill this gap to some extent. The study is based on primary data collected from 280 cultivating households through a field study in selected villages of agriculturally progressive districts of Uttar Pradesh. The study presents information on various aspects of participation of women in different on-farm and off farm economic activities and the factors that determine women participation in work. It also seeks to measure the economic contribution of women to the household income and its impact on status of women and their participation in decision making. The study is expected to enhance the understanding of the role of women in agriculture and to generate interest of the scholars, policy makers and NGOs in the problems faced by women in farm households and motivate them to develop a strategy for the welfare and empowerment of farm women.
