Understanding Women's Role in Agriculture in the Eastern Gangetic Plains The Macro and Micro Connections

Overview and Objectives

The project is a research study funded by ACIAR with a focus on understanding the role of women in agriculture in the Eastern Gangetic Plains (EGP). When it comes to understanding the role of women in agriculture in the EGP, there appears to be a mismatch between the macro and micro level research findings. The existing literature on this area highlights a consistent de-feminization in the case of India, while the macro level scenario on Nepal and Bangladesh hints at feminization primarily as a response to male-selective outmigration. A number of reasons have been offered for this trend, however, has not been validated at the micro level, and thus how the processes may have worked, if at all, is not clear. Hence, this project aims to critically revisit the role of women in agriculture in EGP.
