No RP2007-79, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)
Using data from a survey of Bangladeshi households, this paper investigates the link between female status and food security. Employing three different indicators of female status - husband's and wife's assets brought at marriage, female share of household income and a composite index of women empowerment, the paper finds evidence of women's status influencing food security.
