Gender, Matrilini and Entrepreneurship: The Khasis of North-East India

 
9788189013769: Gender, Matrilini and Entrepreneurship: The Khasis of North-East India
Présentation de l'éditeur :

This book focuses on the economic activities of Khasi women, a matrilineal tribe in North-East India. Like most women in tribal societies, Khasi women contribute significantly to the sustenance of the family. However, women's contribution to the economy remains a largely neglected area, both in research as well as in policy, not only in North-East India, but also nationally and internationally. What accounts for this general indifference to the economic role of women is one of the issues addressed in this book. The central issue however, revolves around the question of why, despite the substantial time and energy Khasi women invest in their business, many continue to stagnate, and why some, after acquiring some measure of success, slide into oblivion.

Biographie de l'auteur :

Tiplut Nongbri teaches at the Centre for the Study of Social Systems, School of Social Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
