Bibliography and Selected References regarding Rural Women in Bangladesh.
McCarthy, Florence E.; And Others
The bibliography attempts to lift the darkness regarding Bangladeshi women by presenting 207 citations (books, reports, journal articles, and speeches) that review what is known regarding rural women and their involvement in agricultural production and indicate possible trends in employment as represented by literature available on other groups of working women in Bangladesh. Although the materials cover the period 1958 to 1978, the majority were written in the 1970s and were selected to give a preference to general, macro-level items rather than specific, micro-level studies, reports, or project evaluations. A number of citations have been cross-referenced because of their applicability to more than one category in the bibliography. Bibliography categories include general, development, rural women, nutrition/health, law, family/Purdha, working women, economics/productive activities, education, population/demography, family planning, politics/government, cooperative societies, village life, technology, and programme reports. An author index is provided. (BRR)
