About this eBook

Preface Human beings are born biologically, evolve socially and divide into men and women. Gender is a social construct and as a construct, naturally, it has got divide and chasms, division and differentiation. Across the world women are less cared, fed, paid and esteemed. This has created a stigma to the human kind and the civil society. Over ten thousand years or more women keep on nurturing caring and managing agriculture with a contribution, both corporeal and cultural, more than sixty per cent but they are in receipt of the benefits with less and less proportion, sometimes below ten per cent even. This discriminatory and disparaging access and entitlement to the social surplus values of agriculture, horticulture or livestock enterprises have made the progress of agriculture, along with other adverse techno-environmental factors, less productive and less accommodative both in and to the society. The book, with its rightly chosen topic, is spearheading the issues and challenges of engendering agriculture, horticulture or livestock enterprises, etc and has systematically approached to the general concept of gender and gender equity, pro-gender technology and enterprises, case studies for a relevant landing and revelation in the proper domain of discourses. Engendering is a social and political process and techniques are to be used therein as a means of the grand transformation, a transformation which unshackles the drudgery of women and allures the social ethos with credentials of justice and expanse of jurisdiction. We are of every belief that this academic endeavor may be technologically defined, but can rightly be said that it is socially and morally domained. This book will go a long way in preaching the yeomen benefits to the need of professionals, scientists, scholars,

The iota of words or the plethora of verbose, if any, would be of immense impact if the book can decently travel down the meandering passion of a woman reader who, certainly, is fighting hard to allow the cloud-ribbed sunshine to touch her chicks, sobbed with a protractile wait, to have a touch of justice and philanthropy.
