Abstract:

Anthropological fieldwork conducted during 1981 reveals some effects of irrigation on women in a northwest Indian village. The arrival of irrigation in 1954 marked the beginning of significant changes in the life of the villagers. Its benefits, however, have not been felt equally by women of different castes. Irrigation has increased household income, provided new employment opportunities, improved domestic water supply, and allowed women to maintain more productive livestock. This paper describes the different affects of these changes on upper and lower caste women both in a) on-farm agricultural labor; and b) domestic activities within the household.
