Gendered Time, Seasonality and Nutrition: Insights from Two Indian Districts

Publisher: LANSA

Some of the key pathways linking agriculture and nutrition run through women’s work, yet the evidence on these links are weak. Using time use data from two Indian districts, this paper seeks to fill this gap. In principle, women’s agricultural work could have positive and negative implications for nutrition, through increased control over incomes resulting in improved diets to intensifying work burdens leading to tensions and trade-offs between their agricultural work and care responsibilities, as well as attention to their own health.
