Women Empowerment in Agriculture Sector

Shradha, Manish Kumar.

Abstract
Empowerment refers to the action of raising women's status through education, awareness raising,
literacy, and training. Women's empowerment is about equipping and empowering women to make lifedetermining
choices, despite the different social issues. Women's Agricultural Empowerment Index (WEAI)
reflects a simple multidimensional measurement of women's access in the various agricultural sectors to services
and decision making. Nevertheless, its use is marked by many challenges: adapting surveys to local agricultural
contexts, modifying index design once the underlying activities and thresholds are modified for suitability, and
assessing sensitivity. This paper addresses these challenges in this report, based on our experience of implementing
and using WEAI across 3,600 households within India. This paper thus adds to the index's statistical and technical
foundation, expands the WEAI evidence base in South Asia and stresses the importance of tailoring the index to
specific agricultural contexts to have a major effect on the public sector

Key words: Agriculture, Gender, India, Indicators, Women's empowerment
