Women are the key working force in agriculture of Bangladesh. In fact, the women pay even more labour in agriculture production, post harvest handling, crop & seed preservation etc. But, their role in agriculture is neither recognized by the family or society nor by the state. They don’t have access to productive resources, agricultural services, market, credit etc. As a result, the women remain subordinate to men and become worse victim of discrimination and violence. Therefore, UD always prioritize women in its entire program and foster their social and economic empowerment. UD along with other development partners and likeminded NGOs and Farmer organizations has been doing advocacy and campaign for state recognition of women as farmers.
