Product Description

This book examines the discourse of South Asian women’s work and employment trends through the lens of rights and innovations. It has 13 chapters. The contributors take a broad geographical canvas and diverse thematic areas to study how various changes in their work sectors influence women’s rights, and how women innovate and adopt innovative ways to steer through their personal and professional lives. Reflecting on women’s lives and work experiences from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Pakistan, the studies also demonstrate the renewed demands for implementing a right based framework due to excelled automation in the industries and different work sectors. Findings reveal the precarious conditions in formal and informal sectors that had often neglected equitable outcomes for women workers coming from the plains and the hills, rural and urban areas, and pursuing migratory journeys at home and abroad. The book generates a set of policy lessons for the State, private sector, non-profits, and international development partners.
