Gender aspects of capability and well-being in rural India

chapter
posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Lawson Smith, Anita Medhekar
In India's rural economy, poverty is endemic and somewhat feminised. Furthermore, the gender bias in intrahousehold resource allocation breaches distributive theories of justice and has numerous adverse socio-economic consequences. This state of affairs has its roots in the institutions established by traditional Indian society in which two distinct gender based norms were devised without sufficient biological basis, thereby causing considerable injustice to women.
