Abstract:

The empowerment of women and girl child is smart economics and therefore has become a part and parcel of developmental goals all over the world. In India, the potentialities of women are not realized properly due to social structure and stigmas which hamper their development in particular and the development of the society in general. In India, the trend of feminization of livestock production, dairy and animal husbandry stemmed long back even before Operation Flood around the 1970s. Women nearly comprise of 70% of the workers, 80% of food producers, and 10% of basic food stuff processors pertaining to the dairy sector alone (Patel, 1998). The role of women within the livestock production system differs from region to region influenced by social, cultural and economic factors which when assessed properly could help to incentivize the above mentioned aspects (Patel et.al, 2016). This paper reviews the role of dairy sector in enhancing the economic status of rural women and in turn empowering them.
