Female agricultural labourers: Contestations and negotiations within agriculture in Rajasthan
The paper highlights a few markers of the newly emerging trends in the agrarian labour of Rajasthan with its focus on the female labour. The first part of the paper would be an introduction to the various debates on agricultural production and categorization of peasants. This would in turn help in defining the female landless labour for the paper. Second section would be a glimpse into the conditions of female labour within the fields and household. It would also be reflecting on the process of migration and the changes witnessed over time. These changing patterns would be in a specific context of Rajasthan. The last part of the paper consists of the observations from field visits to two villages: Somalpur and Dorai (Ajmer district). The observations would help substantiate the claim that changes in rural labour had impacts with far reaching consequences.
