Rural women perform two economic functions on a daily basis i.e. the areas of spending and production also known as the household and farming chores.

Naden khaled Ms. Amanda 11C 22/2/2017 Women’s Education and Jobs in The Antebellum Era Although women in the antebellum era were far from seen as equal american citizens, many changes happened that affected the way that the community looks at women. From nothing to schools that helped them learn and help them get a bigger opportunity. Despite how great women are now, long ago they didn’t have the right to work or even to go to schools. Women were expected to sit at home take care of the kids and maybe take care of a farm if she had one. Before the civil war women had somewhat of an education.
Difference in rural and urban female work participation rates is due to the greater importance of subsistence production and the potential of women to work as unpaid family labour in the agriculture sector (Mehrotra, 2014). Another reason for high difference in rural and urban female work participation rate is that in rural areas females are engaged in household activities such as bearing and rearing children and in the production of goods and services for self-consumption. Women work at home remains unrecognized unless it produces something for sale. But due to the changes in definition of female work participation, now females considered as worker who makes significant contribution in the agricultural operations like harvesting, ploughing, sowing, transplanting, weeding, tending cattle, cooking and delivering food to the farm during the agricultural operation and other cultivation activities fell under the category manual work in cultivation (NSSO, 68th Round).

Furthermore, most people forget the fact that these women who have to provide for their family are the actual farmers and not the men that we all think, most especially in underdeveloped and developing countries. These women would starve themselves and yet go to the farm to gather what ever they can only to eat the least or none of it at all. When it comes to climate change, women tend to be impacted more because they are vulnerable due to their role as a mother and the expectations it comes with. Also, they are more susceptible to danger as a result of the position

International Women’s Land & Property Rights The UN Women affirms that, in many countries around the world, women’s property rights are limited by social norms, customs and legislation hampering their economic status and opportunities to overcome poverty. Even in countries where women constitute the majority of small farmers and do more than 75% of the agricultural work, they are routinely denied the right to own the land they cultivate and depend on to raise their families.
