Women, Work and Growth

Women, Work and Growth Kamla Nath Woman's Role in Economic Development by Ester Boserup; George Allen and Unwin, London, 1970; pp 283. IN analyses of poverty of nations, and the possibilities of their economic development, the contribution of man as a factor of production is given a prominent place, but the contribution of women to production and the possibilities of using their labour for economic development are generally overlooked. As a result, while economists have been concerned with unemployment of men and while care is taken in development programmes to use only those production methods which do not drive men out of employment, displacement of women workers in the process of economic development is not considered of much consequence.
