Gender challenges by Bina Agarwal( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noted economist Bina Agarwal provides gender perspectives on a wide range of academic and policy issues of current importance in this three-volume set of essays written by her over the last three decades. Combining diverse methodologies and an interdisciplinary approach, this collection brings together in one place the authoras pioneering work in the areas of agriculture, environment, and property rights. These peer-reviewed essays challenge standard economic analysis and assumptions, unraveling the linkages between gender inequality, social exclusion, property, and development. Volume I examines how modernization of agriculture, introduction of new technologies, and rural innovations affect the position of women in rural families, especially in the context of food distribution and healthcare. Volume II challenges conventional approaches to property and family, and examines the importance of owning property, for womenas economic and social well-being, for enhancing their bargaining power and security, and for protecting them against domestic violence. Volume III provides theoretical and conceptual formulations on gender differences in responses to the environment, empirical assessments of such responses, and policy implications

"Bargaining" and legal change : toward gender equality in India's inheritance laws by Bina Agarwal( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper outlines an analytic framework for understanding legal change, using as an illustration the process by which India's inheritance laws (in particular the Hindu Succession Act (HSA) of 1956) have moved toward gender equality. The HSA sought to transform the major inheritance systems that governed Hindus from a situation of gross gender inequality to quite substantial equality. Prior to it the majority of Hindu women could only inherit their father's (or husband's) property after four generations of agnatic males, and even then only as a life interest. The HSA gave them inheritance rights on a par with brothers (or sons) in relation to most property. It is argued here that such change (or its lack) can be understood as the outcome of contestation or 'bargaining' between different interest groups enjoying varying degrees of bargaining power vis-à-vis the State. The paper spells out the broad parameters of the bargaining framework and in the light of this framework analyses both the formulation of the HSA in the 1950s, and contemporary struggles for changing inheritance laws in India. Among the factors identified that affect people's bargaining power with the State are the size and cohesion of the group seeking change; support from elements within the State, as well as from civil society actors; entrenched property and political structures; social perceptions; and social norms
