Rural Women and Power Relations

  • Dong-Sook Shin Gills
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


The breakdown of the traditional sexual division of labour and consequent expansion of women’s labour into the public sphere of production did not release women from their previous roles within the household, but rather overburdened rural women with increased responsibilities. These women are not materially compensated by a better living standard, more leisure, improved health, or even less physical constraint, in exchange for their expanded labour contribution.
