Chapter 1 in Rural Women’s Power in South Asia, 2014, pp 1-15 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract Over the past two decades in India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan, economic expansion and rapid changes in industrial, agricultural, and information technology have led to a reconstitution of these countries’ social hierarchies, a reconstitution that has also affected class, caste, and (particularly germane to this study) gendered divisions of labor in the rural communities of South Asia.
