Bhat Arshad Hussain, Nengroo Aasif Hussain


In the present paper an attempt has been made to assess the role of women in the decision making process of household regarding expenditure at grocery, purchase of seeds, fertilizers, selecting the crop, harvesting of crops, hiring labor, weeding and threshing of crops. Also an attempt has been made to analyze how female respondents manage their household activities. Using multi-stage sampling our analysis reveals that women are only mere spectators in decision making regarding agricultural activities, as only eight percent respondents were taking active role in decision making process. Further we found that almost all kinds of domestic work is done by the female respondents themselves.

Key words: Household activity, education, decision making, land ownership, management.
