Notes on the role of rural Pakistani women in farming in the Northwest frontier province

Author: Ashraf, M.
Year: 1976
Abstract: It is gradually being accepted that women in Pakistan make a direct contribution in the farming sector. The extent and nature of their contribution, however, is not fully known to development planners. In the past, very little socio-economic research has been directed toward the role of rural Pakistani women: as a consequence, their participation in agricultural development has been ignored. This short article is an attempt to enhance understanding of the general role that women in the NWFP play in fanning. The data used are taken from the maize economic survey study undertaken in selected parts of NWFP in 1975-76. This study was organized by CIMMYT in collaboration with the NWFP Department of Agriculture. Data were gathered from 240 farmers.
